I flew into Vegas today, and they had a contest on the flight for two tickets to the Blue Man Group at the Venetian. The contest is to guess the weight of the aircraft, including the fuel, passenger and baggage load. So, if you happen to be flying in to Vegas from Dulles, Chicago, or Denver soon on Ted, do some research before you go on the type of aircraft you're flying to help your guess.

For information, an Airbus A320 with a full passenger load is roughly 156,000 lbs. The closest answer was 152,000 lbs (not mine) so there's wiggle room.

Here's the link on their webpage. Wish I'd known about this before I left. Maybe some ATOT'er can get some free tickets with advance knowledge. :)

No idea, but it's free if you win. Cheaper than a movie! I wouldn't mind going to see them just to understand the hype.

UAL has a lot of games like this on major vacation destinations. They do a "Half Way to Hawaii" game where you guess the exact time that you will be halfway to Hawaii.

Because it's free? :p Why would I want to buy a Nissan? :confused:

Hmm, I don't know. Quite honestly I probably wouldn't buy another Nissan...I probably wouldn't go see blue man group either. :p

Northwest did that too. I didn't give a crap if I won then either. :laugh:

Unfortunately I'm not flying them to Florida next week. I wanted either Northwest (have a free Silver membership that I can extend with a trip) or United since that's where all my miles are. Oh well, I guess I have to content myself with going to Florida for a week!
