Pillow Fight

Here’s the action onboard the flight: a FlyerTalk pillow fight at 33,000 feet. At the end, some 150 pillows from coach were headed to first class.

Here… We… Go!

It’s 6:15 AM, and most of the Mega DO is eating breakfast in the Terminal E President’s Club before their 7 AM departure to PHX aboard CO 1905. There’s not much to say about last night’s first Frequent Traveler Awards that hasn’t already been said on FlyerTalk or at the awards site itself, other than that it was an unqualified success and that the after-party ran a little bit late for a 5 AM (in coach), 5:30 (in Randy, Tommy, and “Marty” class) or 5:45 AM (in first) wakeup call.

Check in throughout the day for coverage of the ride in each class, along with reports from US Airways in Phoenix and the Boeing assembly line at Paine Field. The last day of SMD 2010 will no doubt be the longest!

Overheard on the A380

“Apparently we all can’t go inside the A380 at once so it doesn’t get too crowded. Are they aware it seats 900 people?”


“Do you want to go to the First Class Terminal in the morning?”

“The answer to that question is always yes.”


(Randy standing in coach, looking puzzled) “I’m not sure we really want to see this section. I really have no interest in this cabin.”


“Don’t worry about me; I’m never going to be down here anyways.”
