New Type Of A.net Meet : Mileage Run

Tue Oct 18, 2005 7:46 pm

Hey all,

I'm thinking of doing a mileage run early next year to keep my PE status on SkyTeam.

Plan is to grab a cheap fare ex-UK, fly CO or NW somewhere far and cheap to the US, meet up with some US a.netters, do the stuff we do at meets and head back.

Anyone interested ?

Errmm, yes I did Big grin
Met up with Phil and Lindy and then went off with the Canadians to shoot aircraft at another location.

However as I had none of the local's cellphone #'s I may have missed out on some people  Wink

That is actually not such a bad idea.

Why not set up a trip that allows you to savour airlines that are most likely to go belly up soon. Be sure to include Independence Air as time is definitely running out for them.

Do airlines still go belly-up? I can't remember the last time I saw that happen.  Big grin All these full planes lately and yet nobody's making any money. What kind of nonsense is this? Raise the ticket prices... Oh yeah, they can't until WN's hedges run out. Too funny.

Anyway, sorry I missed you UTA. I didn't spend too much time spotting at LAX on Sunday and headed out of the area for most of the day. Did you get any good shots?

I made the most out of the great weather Big grin, we went over to Lincoln Boulevard and managed to spot there without being arrested (!) then we moved back to In-n-out at around 5 o'clock.

In between we went to another spot on the other side, over some kind of overpass; in all I had a great time and I'm coming back anyways the first week of January  Smile

So you're basically suggesting to attend A.net meetings overseas? Sounds interesting... and a good idea to take a few days off  Smile
