  1. I’ve heard of the Freddie’s but never heard how to get tickets for the event — so my guess is they only invite bloggers or airline FF program employees?

  2. Joey. The tradition of the Freddies is that they have always represented the voice of the road warrior / frequent flyer and frequent flyers in droves have always attended the event. It’s not ‘exclusive’ and there’s far more than bloggers and industry folks at this event. Typically from 50-100 frequent flyers attend the event.

    How open? Last year SAS had a contest and flew one of their SAS Eurobonus members from Sweden to attend the event as their guest (and guest of the Mileppoint sponsor related website bonusfeber.no (and .dk and .se), can’t get any cooler than that.
