The ToC says: “ and then try to guess the location of a virtual Star Alliance branded plane hidden on a map by dropping a pin.”
What does it actually mean? Do you have to drop the pin on a plane or the plane is hidden as per ToC and you cannot see it at all so it is completely wrong to drop it on a plane that it can be seen, it has to be beside it. It isn’t clear for me at all but I would go for the hidden definition rather than choosing an existing plane (even if searching on Internet many people dropped the pin on a plane). By the way I should have done this research before playing - no contest should be taken lightly, especially with what it is at stake :) – and had a more scientific approach. For example I found: “It is easy to see its ORD and that Terminal 1 is the Star Alliance terminal”. No way, I would have known this.
Most of the answers can be easily figured out, but for others you would need to look up (preferably beforehand as they don’t change the questions too much and you are timed as well).
Examples of questions and answers:
Star Alliance Gold members enjoy priority boarding on every departure when travelling across the network. But how many Star Alliance departures are there each day?
Frequent travellers can earn priority status across all our member airlines. But how many frequent flyer cards would you need to have to do so?
As a frequent flyer on the Star Alliance network you can earn and spend your miles or points across how many airlines?
More than half of them
Less than half of them
All of them X
