Great idea, Alberto. I've created a sub-forum, with a few key topics.

2009 SUBSIM Meet planning forum

I will move this thread to that forum after some time. Feel free to use the sub-forum, too.

The cheapest ( if you dont already have a car) would probably be to use the trains to Copenhagen.

The cheapest flights accros the atlantic will probably hold a stop in Frankfurt, Holland or UK depending on what airline you use.

Heres some pointers:
KLM (Holland) www.klm.com
Lufthansa (German) www.lufthansa.com
SAS (Scandinavian) www.sas.dk This airline will have direct flights to Copenhagen from some US Airports including Dulles and New York.
Furthermore SAS, Lufthansa and United are in a group called Star Alliance (http://www.staralliance.com/baseAction.do?language=) where you can earn a great deal of flyer miles.
Thanks for the links.
I will copy this in the other thread,

I'll think i join the Meeting too.

I'll drive by car from Wilhelmshaven via Hamburg to Copenhagen so i may pick up guys at the airport. U-995 is on the way so it should be possible to visit it on the way to Copenhagen or back to Hamburg - i did so 2 years ago:
Lurchi, I hope you will attend, we need to have as many people as possible, and since this is right next to Germany, come on

I really like the idea of flying in to Hamburg on the morning of Sept 16 and sharing a ride with a German to Laboe, then on to Copenhagen. This is similar to what we did in the Amsterdam meeting; me and two other Americans flew into London, Nemesis (a Brit) picked us up, and we traveled across the channel, through nrothern France and spent the first night in Ghent. Then we went on to Amsterdam. I really love to get away from the city and airport and see the country. I have seen very little of Germany, it would be wonderful to go some distance on the ground We will see which Americans and Canadians are coming, how many want to share this idea, and who/how many Germans are interested too. And not only Germans, but French, Italians, and Dutch may drive through Hamburg to Laboe/Copenhagen. Cool.

Trains from Hamburg to Kiel are going around every hour, from Kiel to Kopenhagen I think there are around 5 connections a day. Just a hint. Here is a trip planner from the Deutsche Bahn:

http://www.bahn.de/international/view/en/index.shtml

Anyway, I still don`t know if I`ll make it to the subsim meeting, but if some are planning to meet in Laboe I might meet you there, since it`s only 30 km from here.

Thanks for the trip planner, Zakalwe. I'm checking it out now.

Hope you will make the meeting,
Neal

Sorry Neal but I cannot make it.The dates clash with the 65th anniversary of the Arnhem drop and we have recently discovered that a relative of my wife was in 2 Para and died on the bridge on the second day so we may be going to Arnhem this year.

If somehow I am able to go... I would like advance warning of any sliding glass doors.

(Unless they are dirty... which would be fine without warning.)

Well, if it's half as good as the Texas 2008 Meet, it'll be well worth attending.

I'd love to go. I'll have to see how the finance situation looks this summer.
