During the day, 16 girls visited the departure hall, check-in area, boarding lounges and aircraft, as well as the brand-new Star Alliance lounge, which opened its doors on October 13. They were also able to discover Runway Service, In Flight Service and security checks at Terminal 1.Various airline professions were presented to them by the Deputy Director of Police, the Executive Director of Skytanking, United's fuel supplier, the Aircraft Refuelling Supervisor, the Head of Corporate Real Estate at ADP, a flight attendant from the Chicago-based airline, representatives from Chicago ORD airport and the General Manager of Airport Operations at United Airlines.

Sanita Musselaya, General Manager of Airport Operations for United Airlines, who oversaw the organization of the event at Roissy-Charles de Gaulle, commented: "There's a lot of work behind this event, but it's worth it when you see the girls' faces, their curiosity and enthusiasm! They left the airport with stars in their eyes. It's the best reward of all, and we're ready to do it again next year!"
