I can't believe more people aren't jumping in on this! This will truly be a memorable event. Trust me when I say that a flight with Captain Denny is one of the best treats in the air you will ever have.

I'd love to attend & be on Denny's flight, but I'm skiing that weekend in Whistler & even that might get canceled due to work.

For those who have kids, they might be doing spring break stuff. For those who are chasing miles & promos they might have scheduled other trips already.

Let me say that I'm totally bummed I can't make it. Heck, if it had been the reverse routing I would have flown to Canada via SFO.

Cheers.

Would jump, but the fare is too rich for my blood. (I keep checking, but I'm not holding out much hope that it'll drop.)

Am afraid I'd have to sit this one out too.. The fare is getting more expensive, and I'd rather get myself 2 gaming consoles an a speaker system than spend that kind of money..

Maybe next time round!

Are most people overnighting near ORD and then heading out the next morning? Trying to decide whether to go with an airport hotel or Chicago downtown proper, for a flight out Sunday evening.

+1, when I booked, SFO-ORD-LGA was cheaper than Capt Denny's flight alone.

Consequently, I'll be heading straight back to NYC (though truly bummed to be missing out on whatever postDO activities ensue)
