The great Star Airbus DO, Nov. 5th and 6th

All,

Well, it started out with me planning the yearly SAS DO, but if you read through this thread, you will see an amazing development, if you don't feel like browsing through this monster, here's the short version.

Flyertalk in cooperation with Lufthansa presents:
The first annual Star Alliance DO!

Join us for a once in a lifetime experience, including the first Flyertalk chartered flights on a Lufthansa widebody!

On this flights the Flight Attendants will actually be there for your safety only. Your servers on board will be your Flyertalk Moderator Crew lead by Purser Randy Petersen. The catering and service on board will be nothing like you have ever experienced on an aircraft before. That is a promise.

Also
- Welcoming CO to the Star Alliance
- Visit the Airbus factory and take a look at the Airbus A380
- Visit Scandinavian Airlines in Oslo and Stockholm
- Visit Lufthansa's home in Frankfurt

PS!! Everyone is welcome!!

Definitely up for OSL-TLS and onwards, but like the above subject to date, cost etc. etc. Guess I'll be seeing some future info on this in the Scanair-village...

Any idea on the dates, or even the month?

I'd love to attend, and will be over there at least twice in the fall...

I will be the purser onboard. No gates here, Oliver will be the VIP guide for the passengers in (name pending) class. Maybe the back of the bus should be called Guantanamo class

Though I am afraid the price tag on this one will be way above my budget, I would definitely give it some serious though. So, while awaiting more info, please count me in!
