Twitter tweets that their server crashed (again?) during initial sale.

136 seats sold with plenty more left...

I'm in (although I don't need to buy a long-haul positioning flight of course).

I did genuinely enjoy SMD6.

And The Points Guy is coming too :-)

Did u buy economy, economy with empty middle, or economy with empty middle exit row?

The price points were odd to me.

Economy.

For SMD6 I bought an exit row seat but I think the premium was only $300 which, given my height, was worth it. I wasn't prepared to pay $700 for two hours of extra legroom though .....

I agree the price points were odd. I am price insensitive, in general, but at the same time I don't hand over $700 unnecessarily. Brian is even taller than me (we've met) so he probably stumped up $1,999 - I doubt Tommy comped him!

How do you know Brian is coming? I saw on Twitter that they said they are sending "someone" from the company but not that it was him.

Perhaps it's not Brian. The tweet I saw said TPG was coming, I assumed it was Brian but perhaps not.

Yeah, I was doing that mental math and it didn't add up.

Based on the MP master thread, it seems as though someone other than Tommy is running it this year. Or maybe someone else is just the mouthpiece?

In any case, it looks like one of the more attractive MDs in terms of stopping points. And no luggage factory tours!
