It seems like we have quite a few are taking advantage of the recent good price on OTP-PHX so I thought it might be a good idea to see if we could put together some ad-hoc meet-ups. I don't want to organise anything as it seems that we are all travelling on different dates and, in some cases different routes, but it would be a shame to be on the same flight or in the same lounge as another FTer, not know and not be able to share a beer and stories... if that is what you want. Of course, if you like to travel alone then that is great too.

So, if you want others to know about your travel plans and fancy saying hi to fellow FTers please post your details and I will add you to the wiki. If you have wiki update access then please, by all means, update the wiki yourself

I am posting my hotel arrangements but if you would rather not do that yourself but wish to post your flights then that is also perfectly fine.

For those that want to read about the Aug 2018 PHX mini-do (quite a few did it!) it is here : https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/brit...ug-2018-a.html

There are some links at the end of the wiki to interesting things to do around Phoenix. Please feel free to add to this list if you wish

Hi all, especially SMAXMUPPET - several time changes as for everyone. We were able to change the entire itinerary. Have updated the schedule in the WIKi. Now still looking to change the JFK-LHR so that we can fly together.

Edit: JFK-LHR now also changed to 747 BA174. American Airlines was excellent service as always!

Just had notifications that my positioning flight from LHR to OTP on 18/04 has had a time change. BA0886 has changed from 11:40 to 08:15. Mmm, a very early start then!!

I've another BA886 in my itinerary (on 22/04), but no news of that changing (yet)!

I got the same change which is going to mean having to get a hotel for the early start!

It's affected my run in August too, which was going to start from MAN Thursday morning, but now I'll have to fly down the night before....

Is it not possible to do this run without having a night in Bucharest?

Of course - back to back day one and fly longhaul day two - you might even be able to do LHR-OTP - OTP-LHR-JFK all on day one

Last August, I did a day trip B2B to OTP on Friday, and then flew onto PHX via JFK and LAX on Saturday.

Although most of my flights are in March, the trip does sneak into April too, so I thought I'd add them to the Wiki. It may be interesting to see how they deal with LHR - HEL - LHR on one ticket with checked luggage (I thought there was some "rule" about luggage not passing through an airport more than once.....).

I'm doing LHR-OTP-LHR-JFK-LAX-PHX return in July, with overnight stops in OTP JFK on the way out and LAX OTP on the return. If I qualify by consensus I will add it to the wiki
