Uh, I have a feeling it won't be coming back, you know with Delta's luggage mishandling track record...

[QUOTE=ADLFO;12794566]I think your intent was to have us all for a full week at which time you believed you could transform us into DL-Loving automatons whose future would consist of writing postivive DL posts on FT, hawking DL AMEX CCs at ATL, MSP,DTW and SLC, and throwing large parties for JR and RA on alternating weekends. However, we saw through all this and called you on it, so now you have retreated and claim some sort of benevolent purpose. Your evil plan has been foiled, at least for now. QUOTE]

That would be a great addition to the DO. We should also scan boarding passes (to make sure that everyone boards in the right zone) and work the phones at the reservation desk.

And the sad thing is, that's only about halfway tongue-in-cheek for us.

Count me in. From last year's posts this sounds like a great event!

Actually a good idea- Issue boarding passes for each activity when we register, and you present your BP to enter each venue.

We will, of course, need to divide them by boarding zones to keep the entry process smooth.

There will be reissue fees in case of lost BP's, and someone with a loupe and maglite to inspect each BP and do ID matching...

It's looking more and more that I will be taking US for the DO as I'm planning on shuttering the cabin for another year....

....there's some irony there....

Fortunately, since attendees are FTers, there should not be any problems with "gate lice" os use of the Breezeway.

Thank you for the feedback and responses so far. There certainly is quite a high level of interest in this event, which, given the feedback from the last event is no surprise at all. We are still very early in the planning stages, and we are reviewing the feedback on here as well as the e-mails. We will do our best to take the feedback into consideration as we move further along with the planning. I never under-estimate the creativity of FT members! You never know what we might come up with… We will continue to provide everyone with updates when we have confirmed the details.

In the meantime, several people have asked if they could put a deposit down now - . Rest assure, we will do our very best to accommodate everyone once we have selected the dates and officially open the event for registration, which won’t be until sometime after the beginning of the calendar year. We were able to clear the waitlist for everyone that wanted to attend the last event, so we ask for your continued patience.

Safe travels.
