Nordic-themed Star MegaDO 6 – The Rise of the Vikings is hardcore airplane geek indulgence. I have never managed to attend a MegaDO. I have heard great things about them and like the region focus on Europe to change things up from a US-centric view.
Some highlights from the organizers:
- An up close look at the new Airbus A350 – the future of aviation
- Spend a day with Mark Schwab, President and CEO of Star Alliance and get a behind-the-scenes tour at their biggest investment in a long time: T2, The Queens Terminal at London’s Heathrow
- A day with SAS — SAS put on an amazing show, one of the most loved programs of the MegaDo back in 2009. Now they are back and they are inviting us to spend the day with them in their hometown Stockholm. We’ll get to take a look at their new Business Class and newly refurbished planes in addition to SAS Eurobonus, their revamped loyalty program with a brand new tier.
- Club Carlson is our new hotel partner. This will include their top tier status Concierge for everyone who stays at the host properties. They are also hosting a reception at their flagship property, the luxurious The May Fair in London.
Full details and registration on the official Star MegaDO 6 website.
I could use me some Club Carlson Concierge status. Their points are by far the greatest value in Europe when paired with their co-brand credit card. Good luck getting complimentary breakfast in Europe with Gold Status. I have even had reception in Vienna laugh at me when I inquired. With Concierge, breakfast is yours. Sure, its Continental Breakfast only, but its not like European breakfasts are anything more than pastries, cucumbers and tomatoes. 😉
If you want to join in the festivities, don’t doze through President’s Day. Register at noon Central.
