Star Alliance solicits suggestions from FlyerTalk members – USATODAY.com

Ever wonder what Star Alliance’s headquarters looks like?
Many people on the FlyerTalk “Mega Do” frequent-flier trip did, and dozens stopped to snap photos of the Star Alliance map and logo (seen here) at the group’s headquarters near the Frankfurt Airport earlier today.
That came as several dozen FlyerTalk members met with Star Alliance officials today in Frankfurt as the world’s largest frequent-flier group solicited their feedback on potential future products.
Star Alliance CEO Jaan Albrecht was on hand to address the group, thanking them for their loyalty to the alliance and its carriers.
Star Alliance members traveled from as far as Hawaii and Australia for the “Mega Do” event, which is affiliated with FlyerTalk and gave the travelers access to Star’s top executives. The MegaDo trip began in New York and will continue on to Houston, Phoenix and the Seattle area by Friday evening.
“I think the access [to alliance and airline executives] is pretty incredible,” a FlyerTalk member from Australia told me.
Star Alliance officials invited the FlyerTalk members to participate in a series of workshops in which the “FlyerTalkers” where encouraged to give their feedback on products the alliance is considering adding in the future.
