Interesting flight auctions including the last Brussels Airlines Avro flight

Regular readers will know that I was down at the Austrian Airlines maintenance base in Vienna for a tour recently.  It was part of a wider 3-day mix of weird and wonderful airline and hotel events I attended organised by the US MegaDO group.

Following the tour, the group has put together a number of auction items from the sponsors of the trip.  Anyone can bid on these, irrespective of whether they went on the event or not.  All proceeds go to charity.

As you can see here, auction items include:

A VIP tour of Austrian’s facilities at Vienna Airport, including maintenance, crew training, and airport facilities – current bid $500

1 long-haul Business Class ticket on Austrian Airlines (which has a very impressive Business Class including an on-board chef) – current bid $1,650

2 long-haul tickets as above – current bid $3,050

2 long-haul Business Class tickets on Brussels Airlines – current bid $2,250

Most interesting if you are in the ‘aviation fan’ category is this:

Two seats on the last Brussels Airlines Avro flight (a round-trip from Brussels to Geneva) on October 28th, including a participation in the festivities, and an opportunity to go behind the scenes.  The current bid for this is $500.

Auctions end on 25th October apart from the Avro flight which ends on 20th October.  You can bid here.
