Ditto.

Pending final dates, I'm in.

Sadly, I missed the Delta DO last year when I was laid up at home for a couple of miserable weeks - oink, oink. (That's one vaccination that I won't have to worry about now ) Def count me in for this one.

I'll do whatever I can to rearrange my schedule to make the dates you pick.

Mrs. Easy Victor will be calling this: Airplane Camp 2, the sequel and my kids will be rolling their eyes....!

I'm in, provided it's not overlapping 5/19-5/20 (that's Google I/O).

There is a reason why May was selected.

That is the time of year when Delta Air Lines has its annual Block Party event at its world headquarters for its employees. I attended it back in 2007, and I had a good time. I believe that other FlyerTalk members will have a good time as well, with plenty of food, music and things to do.

However, the date in mid-May is not yet confirmed, so please stay tuned...

I am most interested and kicking myself for not going for it this year after seeing the photos. I had a coversation with a check flight instructor for another airline recently and he told me he can't even get his family in the simulator, that just reinforced what a great opportunity this is.

Is this going to be a 3 day Fri-Sun format or will the expanded schedule require an additional day? I need to know how many vacation days to set aside .

Last year the DO was on a Thursday-Saturday, with people flying home Saturday night or Sunday morning.

I am VERY interested in doing this DO again!

Oh yes... as I recall, Sunday night at the ATL airport. Six to eight of us getting airport pass.

Very good dinner and company at the Sushi place @ T-E.

For those with TSA knowledge, is tar considered a liquid? I'd hate to have to check it in. The feathers are fine, I know.
