Lightbulb UAL Flyers Game: FlyerTalk member sign in Hemispheres.

I have always wondered if other FlyerTalk members are flying, or have flown, the same aircraft I am in. To answer this this query, I am proposing that FTers flying UA sign their FT names in the current Hemispheres magazine on the United Voices page (page 15 in this months edition).

The rules are easy as there are only a couple of rules:

1) write www.flyertalk.com on the top of the page where the current United Voices section is in the current Hemispheres Magazine.

2) Post your FlyerTalk handle somewhere on the page. If you wish, you can also post UA/UX flight number, from/to airport codes and date.

I have also taken to signing my handle on the front cover in a red sharpie. Some who are playing are not too keen on this but what can I say.


If you happen to see a members handle on the Roll Call list, post it. Posting www.flyertalk.com on the page might enable our community to grow larger.

I started this on UA #330 sitting in 8J. It was too bad the flight was cancelled. I will do this again on my next flight.

Count me in. United Voices page. I'll use my finest Binny & Smith paraffin writing implement, so mine's easily spotted.

Should it be one magazine per segment or can I write my handle on a second magazine?

You'll know I was there if the crossword puzzle is completed, in ink, and with no crossouts.

I intend to sign in on each flight I am on. Since this thread is for the purpose of fello FTers crossing paths, so to speak, and to seek people who don't know us (if they exist ), sign in as many Hemispheres as you wish. ^

I think I'll work the racks at the RCCs too. Beats surfing porn sites. Well...maybe not...but it's got to be more wholesome!

Isn't it?

I'm in. But since Hemispheres is (allegedly) changed each month, maybe we should take to signing the air sickness bags instead. UA never changes those. May also be more appropriate on Ted flights.

Yeah, but many if not most seatback pockets don't seem to have barf bags any longer.

How about bathroom graffiti on the walls of the loo? Or a big Sharpie on the tray table top. That would be hard to miss.

I signed my first 2 Hemispheres yesterday. I would have signed my seat mates but he was looking at it. I didn't want to rile him up. Maybe next time.

I signed my flyertalk call sign on two Hemisphire magazines on UA 171 today. Just stating this for the record in case TSA or UA freaks out when they start seeing secret tags written on Hemisphere magazines.

Anyone know how often during the month they swap out Hemispheres for new copies? It almost always seems as though mine's a new one even if it's late in the month.
