I have really struggled about whether to go on the international portion of the Star MegaDo 4, and whether to sit in coach or business class for that portion of the trip. I have gone on two MegaDos, but have only done the domestic portion in order to keep costs down, as well as to avoid being away from home for too long. However, I do want to experience the full MegaDo at least once, so this was going to be the trip where I did just that. In fact, while still at the launch party I booked a night at the Park Hyatt Zurich on Hyatt Gold Passport points (actually my laptop was used for that purpose by many at the event!). After talking with my husband and others on previous MegaDos, I had decided to do a “once in a lifetime” splurge and fly in business class for that portion of the trip.
The West Coast to Zurich and back is a very long flight, and I had little desire to do that flight in coach. Flying from here to Florida, or some other domestic destination in coach is fine, but that flight is a totally different story – especially when there are still several more days of events and travel once you get back to the US. However, today it looks like the price of the business class seat has jumped to $4000. Ain’t no way, ain’t no how. That is never going to happen for me, so I am now officially on the wait list for a coach seat……from LAX to Zurich. Ouch.
If you happen to have $4K in your account to use for this purpose, tickets are about to go on sale (PS, if you have an extra $4K in your account, and want a new friend to sit next to you, just let me know……kidding, kidding).
Head over to Milepoint to wait for the official starting gun to sound to secure your seats. Someone will have to tell me how those international business class seats are, since I won’t be finding out on this trip. 😉
