    Howdy all... first post here so please don't crucify my poor soul in case this is not the specific thread BUT, are there some kinda solid conversations on this year's MegaDo? I missed last year's and would love to make it in 2012.

    Thanks again. Cheers!

    They're currently planning and prepping for the 4th Star Alliance MegaDO. No plans yet for the next oneworld event. :)

    If your specific interest is the MegaDO and not really about AA, you should probably hang around this forum instead: LINK.

    We just finished booking our 2013 trips. I'd have loved to have been part of the OneWorld MegaDo, and just realized that with our travel now nailed down, we may be doomed again.

    And, Welcome wfagundes!

    Tommy has dropped hints about a oneworld megado in early 2013 and with an even bigger plane. Nothing definitive.

    The hint came in the SMD4 thread, in response to someone asking about a bigger plane for the charter... like an easter egg in a haystack!

    If it is to be bigger, then it must be the A380 because the B748 is on SMD4. Thus it is either the first BA delivery (the first of the HGW version IIRC) or one of the QF craft (they have 12 already in service).

    MH will, hopefully, be a OW airline by that point and had their first A380 flight 7/2/2012 KUL-LHR.

    Considering the first OWMD registration crashed and sold out in a matter of minutes, I'm guessing very quickly. ;)

    I'll wager that if we get an A380 it will sell out in less than two hours, in fact I'll make book on that.

    I think he was referring to the charter... not the optional TATL... but I have assumed and been wrong before.

    Maybe we can get one in the oft-talked-about 950 seat all-economy configuration that everyone on TOBB was afraid would be in the skies by now!

    In that case it would not be OW, whew!
    The only OW carrier with them on order is CX, and they're all the cargo version.

    But you could probably do the entire upper deck of Tommy class with that ;).

    As of the moment, SMD4 is on a 767, the first time a wide-body’s been the main MD charter plane. The 748 is a regularly scheduled flight to FRA and we then switch planes for the jump to ZRH; it’s a regularly-scheduled A340 direct to SFO.

    All this depends on routing of OWMD2 and which airline will have what plane available at that time of year, whenever that is.

    We're just speculating on the Tommy hint, not actually expecting anything.

    Oh, I know. But jumping all the way out to an A380 isn’t speculating. That’s a whole ‘nother level of “out there”!:)

    Indeed it is. However, QF and EK have both chartered them, so it is not impossible. Thus...

    It won't. It's nice to pretend though. ;)

    I thought we were talking about touring planes, not charters.
