    To know me, is to fly with me. So why not be one of the first?

    It's official. I'm one of the lucky winners of the OWMD Post Event Challenge - and as a result, am now a newly-minted American Airlines ConciergeKey member.

    As part of my promise if I won this privileged status, I will be officially changing my name to Ryan Bingham. Please join me in the skies on some of my first ever flights as Ryan Bingham!

    Here's the routing we're taking:

    22SEP AA2324 DFW 0610 ORD 0825
    22SEP AA4350 ORD 0955 OMA 1125
    22SEP AA4353 OMA 1155 ORD 1325
    22SEP AA1792 ORD 1420 MIA 1825
    22SEP AA0611 MIA 2100 DFW 2300

    We've got a group rate from American of $496 (plus taxes of about $86 and $25 ticketing fee) for this once in a life time event. One or two very special guest stars may be making an appearance, but you'll just have to wait and see about that ;-)

    To take advantage of the group rate, you must send me a conversation by no later than 5pm CST on June 27 that includes:
    • Your full name
    • Your AAdvantage number
    • Your email address
    • Your phone number
    A $100 non-refundable deposit will be required to confirm your seat. Payment of the remainder will be due by 5pm CST on Aug 17.

    Yes, you will earn miles on these flights - which book in to V class. Anyone that beats me to the upgrade will be getting thrown off the aircraft. :p

    There will be a dinner event in Dallas on the evening of Sep 21, and no doubt a world-famous wijomas after party the night of Sep 22. So, go book your rooms at the Hyatt Regency DFW for Sep 21-Sep 23!

    BUT WAIT! Why stop the fun there?!
    Continue the journey the next day and join me on a trip to Colorado Springs, the home of the House of Miles and frequent flier guru Randy Petersen!

    See y'all there!

    Ryan B.

    PS - Don't forget to keep on pledging your Kiva loans to support this name change!

    Are you actually announcing the newly created Ryan Bingham AAMegaDO for the weekend of September 28-30?

    So, do we sign up, in this thread? What hotels are on board? :D

    Absolutely LAS, but mind you, I'll be doing this ONLY to get the coveted membership in THE Club, the rest is just secondary. ;-)

    We've already done the Up in the Air card swap, and she didn't see my CK card that time around. I think she ran away with some other CK dude. Possibly cova, haven't heard from him for a couple hours. B**tard. :p :D

    Count me in, wherever we end up going. Why not end in California (LAX/SFO)?

    I might be able to do part of the tour. Are you doing the catering menu? How many chip and coke shops will we hit? :p

    Would love to go but I'll be In HNL that weekend. But keep my eye on the DO if the dates change.

    A couple of key people have said the dates don't work, so it's still very likely that they'll change. I just had to put something in as a placeholder. Plus, I haven't even asked the boss man if we're allowed to come visit the HOM yet ;)

    I've asked my Premium Services rep to remove all other pax from the aircraft to ensure that I receive maximum attention on board.

    or what he said above -- 2 in the plane, the rest in that cabin baggage hold!

    You could always pop up to ABQ for the Rocky Mountain District Barbershop Harmony convention :) I'm running the show, so I'll be a little occupied.
