SAVE THE DATE!!! Join Us In Frankfurt For Advent-DO & Special LUFTHANSA Events!!

Should your calendar allow you to be in Frankfurt at the end of November, please join us for the annual ‘Advent-DO’!

The event, organized by Ralf Schumann of &  (Mileage Run Specialist!) ,  welcomes anyone with an interest to spend time with other Frequent Travelers and enjoy a few days in Frankfurt.

This year’s tentative itinerary is excellent and promises to deliver a great time.  Among the events we expect to take place:



A round-table discussion with members of Lufthansa’s management team.

Cargo Tour – I am currently working to confirm the details with Cargo for a rare behind the scenes tour of Cargo, including access to the apron for an up close look at MD11 and 777 Freighters.



LUFTHANSA Technik:  A great behind the scenes tour of Lufthansa’s aircraft engineering & maintenance division.   Visits to a variety of hangars will provide up close access to a variety of different LH aircraft.   The tours will be given in German & English.

Premium Economy Preview:  We hope to have an opportunity to board a 747-8i to experience Lufthansa’s newest cabin product first hand!

After the tours, we’ll gather for cocktails and dinner and take in the open of the Advent / Christmas Markets in Frankfurt.



Brunch (Location to be determined).


Please keep in mind that this itinerary is still tentative while we wait for Lufthansa to confirm the details.    I suspect that this event should have its agenda finalized in the next couple of weeks.   Additionally, some of the tour components of the event may have limits as to how many people can participate due to logistics, security, etc.   So it’s important to sign up early once ‘registration’ opens.

I’ll provide an update letting you know when ‘Sign Up’ officially opens.   You can also keep tabs on the event by visiting the VielFliegerTreff thread for this event.    At some point there will also be a thread started in FlyerTalk’s Community Buzz Forum.

If you have any questions regarding the event, please let me know by leaving a comment.
