All filled, from the looks of it. Note that the flights were all one-way.

1000 flight were snatched up in less than 2 hours. He said he was going to put up more. Not sure when or if he has already done so.

They added more flights a couple of hours ago. All full now.

Apparently today was one of the busiest days for room bookings in The Dís history. So good for them.

I was going to post up about this, but not because it might be a good deal, I have no doubt that it is.

All the comments on Twitter we're gushing with admiration as if this was some kind of philanthropy. So much so, that it made me want to puke.

This is not philanthropy or act of kindness. IT'S A MARKETING PLOY.

It may be a marketing ploy, but considering there is no requirement to stay at, or even to merely visit, the D or Golden Gate, it sure is an interesting ploy!
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁

Don't forget he needs a nice big mailing list for the Circa. He's not stupid.

Two of the second round of flights were from Buffalo and Boston.

I was a little surprised that there was one flight from San Francisco and then two from Oakland.
