A birthday in the sky

Nothing quite like a birthday party with 190 friends hurtling through the air in a metal tube at 500 miles/hour 36,000 feet above the ground. One of the StarMegaDo participants got to experience that (for the second consecutive year) on Friday as he was serenaded on the PA system, given a set of Junior Flight Attendant wings and otherwise feted.

Lots of fun!

I’m traveling this week with the “Star Mega Do,” a FlyerTalk-affiliated gathering that includes some of the most dedicated frequent-flier enthusiasts from across the globe. In this particular case, the trip is focused on the Star Alliance carriers.

Today I’m coming to you from Frankfurt, where I’ll be meeting with both Lufthansa and Star Alliance officials later today.

On Wednesday, the group changes location to Houston, where I’ll be on hand to cover the first annual Frequent Traveler Awards ceremony on Thursday. Also while I’m in Houston, I hope to get time with some of United’s executives for an update of what’s going on at United and Continental.
