  1. I’m surprised that actually worked for that wanker.

    Usually the flight crew is a little more on the ball. I guess your chances are the best if you wait until after the meal and everyone has crashed.

  2. Gary really ? why are you giving this punk airtime ? You for us that work hard and earn the points and or are paying for the seats and you advertise this crap.

    Your dropping down to the blogger who showed us “her husband in the shower” on EK

    Really might say sorry guys I always held you as one of the most legit of bloggers

  3. Maybe he succeeded because there was a crew change and the second crew made some assumptions. Cute that it worked for him.

  4. Instead of making a bad picture of an Amazon aircraft why don’t you google ‘Prime Air’. That would be Amazon’s fleet of 767’s of which they have more than 30 aircraft. They look pretty good with the current paint jobs.

  5. Hyatt’s “For A World of Understanding,” campaign was stupid and didn’t address what’s important to their base clientele. This came at a time when so many of their marginal frequent stayers were angry about the recent changes. Fortunately, Hyatt has corrected several of the mistakes and still has the most “bang for the buck” award program. Hopefully, their new agency will address the things that frequent travelling business people care about.
