Star Mega DO Registration is Live, Sign up Now for the Experience of a Lifetime

Over the weekend I shared details of the upcoming Star Mega DO.

Events kick off September 5 with an optional European program (and deeply discounted business and economy tickets between New York and Munich). Last year’s event featured an after-hours party in Lufthansa’s First Class Terminal in Frankfurt. The year before there was even an emergency slide popped for members of the trip.

The full event begins at the Park Hyatt Chicago on Wednesday, September 7 with management of United and Hyatt. The next morning there’s a behind-the-scenes tour at O’Hare, followed by a champagne magic show in the Red Carpet Club, charter flight to Montreal for an Air Canada and Aeroplan program and a Bombardier factory tour. It’s on to Denver for a United training center tour and a charity auction for flight simulator time and tentatively an Air National Guard tour with potential for F16 rides and a Lockheed Martin tour.

United is offering double, triple, and even quadruple qualifying miles for the charter flights (depending on class of service). Hyatt is giving all participants Diamond elite status through February 2013.

Pricing and more details are posted over at Milepoint, but since this is just put together by frequent flyers for frequent flyers it’s surprisingly affordable — coach seats on the charter run $750 all-in, and there are good group discounts on the hotels.

Well, the registration link is now live and though it’s been up for only a few hours it’s apparently already about half sold out, I’m told there are only about 50 seats left.

  1. Hi Gary, I live in Montreal and was wondering if it’s possible to just attend events in Montreal – Bombardier tour. Let me know.

  2. I’m a bit confused. There are two components, right? The optional trip to Munich, and the trip to Chicago + Montreal. I locked into commitments early in the week but Tues night I’m free. Do I understand the cost for the Sept 7–>10th “Do” to be $750 plus approx $415 for rooms or $300 plus approx $415 (for rooms)?

  3. @Lynn coach seats on the charter are $750 (Chicago – Montreal – Denver), that includes activities in those cities and ground transportation in Montreal. The hotel room nights are additional, you book those separately at our group rate in a few days. The European portion is optional and separate.
