    Here's the lounge thread for the oneworld MegaDo. Let's take it UP a notch.

    Glad to finally have a lounge so we don't have to hijack other threads surrounding the event.

    Be careful when you use the term "hijack" around this airline event!

    The flight looks to be oversold. I might be forced to spend another night here ;) :D

    Unbearable! :D

    I could have taken the bump, but I would not have gotten back to MCI until 11pm on Sunday. An earlier HNL-LAX/SFO canceled, so some people were put on our flight and some were put in the flight to DEN. That was my backup flight, but it had zeroes across the board... :sigh:

    You've all heard a lot about "Tommy Class". Well, I had a chance to have Tommy actually experience "Tommy Class" and here he is, middle seat and all (recently enroute from Zurich to Amsterdam). Now you know why "Tommy Class" on the oneworld MegaDo doesn't have a middle seat occupied.
    P.S. He hated the middle seat, but then again he just didn't have the right status to save himself.

    When was this? I don't remember him sitting upside down, but I know his seat was just in front of us, when he wasn't running raffles and serving drinks.

    I think this is from their current tour of Europe, not from the SMD :)

    But did he like to company (specifically the person that had the window seat to his right)? ;)

    I was waiting today to see who would be the first to complain about not having yet received the official invitation email and no one said a peep until a report appeared of having received the "golden" message and not being required to bring a printed copy, only a photo ID. Well done, guys.

    The question really is, "What would they be thinking if he were dressed in lederhosen, rolling the drink cart down the aisle?" (For those of you who weren't on Star Mega Do I and don't get the joke......I will refrain from posting any photos out of respect for Tommy. :D)

    Where are you flying from? Such a long distance, arriving early, or MR?

    MCI-SFO this afternoon, SFO-LAX on Sunday. I'm attending the UA fleet week event, so I've got the next two days in SF.

    Arrived in LAX about 5 hours ago & caught the SuperShuttle to the Andaz. $16.00. Took an hour. The guy drove like he was sick of life, but not quite as wild as a shuttle I once took from JFK to Chelsea!

    The greeting was warm & similar to Andaz Wall Street, despite arriving at 9:30am to check in. My suite is spacious with a great view on 2 sides.

    The restaurant looks great & the bar looks like our sort of place. Even empty it has atmosphere & just invites you to sit down & get comfortable. I look forward to as many meals as I can in this place.

    Now to decide what I'm going to do this afternoon.. Lunch, go for a walk, massage poolside, nap, theatre, BBQ place across the road open till late, .... OK. All of that should fill the rest of the day.

    See you all soon.
