Wow! How cool. No, didn't get this. I wonder if it's only targeted to local EWR elites? I'd give anything to go!

Screw the crappy pita chips. If I get this and get selected I will be very happy.

If I had nothing to do and was EWR based, I'd probably give it a shot.

In my mind I have to separate this from thinking it would be something like Disney's Star Tours.

But yes, if it was local to me, I'd have to do it. Just to see.

I got one asking to take a simulated international business class flight. Filled out the survey. Will see. However they require an NDA for participants.

I got the same email from them a year ago when they did this in SEA. I replied and gave my preferred times and never heard a thing back from them -- not even to tell me I didn't get in!

I'm guessing participants will be required to sign non-disclosure documents.

I received an invite...EWR/PHL centrally-located PLAT here. I found the survey questions to be interesting.

Nada for this Platinum EWR-based flyer. Hope it's a good experience (if you get picked!)
