Well, we’re a quarter of the way there at least. If you want to fly to Zurich for the international portion of Star MegaDO 4, the pricing and reservation details have been announced by Tommy777 today. This is only for economy class, and you will have to wait until Monday for business class. Although the international portion is optional, it does guarantee you a spot on the domestic charter, which is sure to sell out quickly.
The U.S. departure point has been changed to LAX from IAD. I am quite ecstatic about this because I live in Seattle. West Coast rules! This is in order to get on Lufthansa’s new 747-8 to FRA, from which we will then connect to ZRH. In other good news that should make everyone happy, the return portion will be direct from ZRH to SFO.
Read the thread on MilePoint for Tommy’s instructions (post #455). I’ve already sent my email off to Melinda, although I’m about 27 minutes late. Judging by the number of people rallying around business class options, it seems that I’m probably safe. Ah, the benefits of being a future unemployed PhD!
Read below for Tommy’s instructions

Here’s how the international ticketing will go down:
There will be a total of 35 coach tickets available at the prices above (there will also be 45 tickets in biz on Monday)
If you purchase any one of these seats, you’ll be eligible to pre-purchase a seat on the SMD charter.
If you want any of these coach seats, please send an email to email@example.com. The first 35 people to send an email to Melinda, will get a spot.
You will shortly after receive instructions what LH needs to ticket you. You then have 48 hours to provide the information. If you fail to respond with your information before the end of the deadline, you will loose your spot.
You will then be ticketed by LH. After we get a confirmation that you are ticketed by LH, you will receive a PRIVATE link for you to secure a seat on the SMD charter. You then have 48 hours to book the SMD charter. If you fail to book withing 48 hours, you will loose your spot.
The ticketing will happen next week. If you’re ticketed in coach, you CANNOT upgrade to biz later. If you are planning on being in biz, DON’T BOOK COACH AND DON”T SEND MELINDA AN EMAIL TILL BIZ BOOKING OPENS MONDAY.
