SINGAPORE DO 2018: We're back! 12-14 Jan 2018

The longest* running DO on Flyertalk is back again in 2018 to be held in Singapore. Expect fun and games alongside a weekend of FTer madness.

For this year, there will be a pre-do in the Asia Pacific region. That city will be Sydney in Australia. There will not be any post do, however. Esteemed members may pursue any post do plans as they wish.

We thank the following individuals, for they have taken their precious time off to plan for this DO ahead of time:

bschaff1

So mark your calendars, plan your leave and buy your tickets! We'll see you there!

*International

*one of the longest DOs on FT.
It is the longest running international DO but is superseded by at least one domestic (US) option in a pizza and bakery part of the country

Sadly (or gladly) I am unable to attend this year as I will be vacationing elsewhere at the time.

I will have to give this a miss as I think I will be firmly ensconced in Europe then.

I am a maybe at this stage for both pre-DO and main DO.

lowjhg, you've managed to get QF to reverse the direction of QF6?
