Lucky’s Lucky 7th: Favorite Posts

177

Checking this morning I’ve written over 8,000 blog posts in the past seven years.

OMAAT-cake-4That’s an average of three posts per day, and well over 12 million words. We won’t even talk about the comments and emails, but, yeah, my life outside this blog is every bit as exciting as you’d expect based on those numbers. 😉

If I had to pick a favorite post, I’m not sure I could. I have some favorite memories, and some days that were especially fun. but it’s somewhat like picking a favorite child.

So you tell me! I have an unopened EVA Air Rimowa amenity kit (plus some other goodies) to giveaway today.

To enter, just leave a comment below sharing a link to your favorite post on the blog over the years, and telling everyone why you liked it.

You have until 11:59PM Pacific today! The winners of each of the daily contests will be announced on Sunday, February 8th.

    Definitely the story where a stranger wanted to buy your sweater! Also, when you wore pajamas in the terminal.

  2. Roger Guest

    I'd say the one of Royal Jordanian review as it had lots of mixed feelings!!!!! https://onemileatatime.com/a-royal-dishhonor-royal-jordanian-business-class-bangkok-to-hong-kong/

  3. B Guest

    I missed the cutoff but I'll share anyhow. Love them all but especially enjoyed the recent father/son bonding trip. Tugged at the heartstrings and was a joy to read along!

    https://onemileatatime.com/hello-from-singapore-and-dont-be-a-douche-like-me/

    By far. Not to be mean, but it is funny to read about your 'mishaps'. And to be really honest, it takes a lot for someone to post about themselves like that :-P

  5. Andy Guest

    There's so many posts that I love, but I have to admit that I truly LOVED your review post of Eva Air's Hello Kitty Business Class flight from Tokyo to Taipei! It was so out of the ordinary and fun! You had me with the HK toilet paper! But, the Hello Kitty paté was da bomb! Don't they have Rimowa amenity kits on Eva Air?

    The sweater story in the lounge.

    There are LOADS of posts that I like from here, but this might be a surprise to everyone. It's not conventional, but this piece of news made me aspire for my first F award seat - and I'm even able to take my partner with me on my round birthday trip thanks to this!

    https://onemileatatime.com/ana-first-class-coming-to-seattle-singapore-and-frankfurt/

    Really, a huge thanks to you and your posts for bringing the unreachable within reach!

    Trip with your Dad.. one of the best.

  9. Mary elizabeth Guest

    Honestly, ben, my favorite post was your reflections on flying after your HK Royal Jordanian flight. I loved your transparency and realness. Even though I lived in a China for most of my 20s, I'm still afraid of flying. I know the aftermath was really tough, yet you opened yourself and your pain to your readers, and I know it impacted many of us. PS I've never flown international first class (yet), but you can...

I know the aftermath was really tough, yet you opened yourself and your pain to your readers, and I know it impacted many of us. PS I've never flown international first class (yet), but you can bet I'll know the difference between Dom and Krug when I do, thanks to you!

    I really enjoyed your dad's post on your recent trip. We sometimes take traveling for granted but it was refreshing to see your father's genuine enthusiasm and appreciation.

    "To the Vaterland with my Vater" Dad's thoughts is my favorite. My parents are also from Germany so I can relate : ) "Lufty" does it every time for me!

  12. Euro Member

    I'll have to say my favorite post was the LHR-DXB flight where you were reaccommodated on Emirates unexpectedly. A strange, unexpected, and very awarding twist which turned into an amazing experience. Also provided for a lot of gossip at the dinner table with my friends months later.

  13. Kalboz Member

    Hanging out with Justin Ross Lee: https://onemileatatime.com/about/

    And oh yea, I forgot what miles points are worth entries are very beneficial to place some sorta of valuation on the currency for the average person.

  14. Lisa Guest

    Definitely this one https://onemileatatime.com/taking-my-pants-off-in-the-admirals-club%E2%80%A6/

    It was one of the first posts I ever read here, and gave me a real insight into your humor. :)

  15. Susan Guest

    My favorite post.... well, actually was the series of posts about surprising your Dad with an around the world trip for his birthday. Great series. Here's one sample: https://onemileatatime.com/dad-guesses-next-destination/

  16. Brian Guest

    Enjoy all of your posts Ben, but the one that stands out to me is your New Years trip to Europe. You visited Edinburgh and Prague which are two cities I really loved when I was there.

    Happy 7th! Thanks for all the good reads! :)

    Often times when I'm catching up with friends that have gone off to college, I'll get asked about my current job. I usually give them positive insight on the industry (unless I've had a bad week at work), but regardless of the week, I always seem to find myself telling them about the cool and interesting people I've met, and for most of my friends, there isn't anything cooler than traveling the world for a living (I know there's more to it, but I don't get too technical with them in these conversations lol).

    So whenever they seem intrigued about, I'll usually send them over to the blog or to the above post so that they can gain a little bit more insight :).

  18. Becca Guest

    I think the best posts have been the ones when you've traveled with your mom or dad. They've made me want to do something similar....on a slightly smaller scale.

  19. John Guest

    Love all your posts. You are so much fun to read. Would like to meet you in person. If you ever need a break from flights and hotels, you can always put your feet up in Palm Springs.

  20. Dee Guest

    my fave post(s) was how u got, bought, used, & burned the pts, miles, etc. Very enlightening. I have been a good student of yours.

    My favorite trip report was the Etihad Airways Business Class A330 Dusseldorf To Abu Dhabi. It was a really good trip report but my favorite part was at the end when the customs guy was being really creepy. You described it so well that if you were not a blogger you could be a professional story teller if that is a thing!

  26. Cheryl New Member

    Recently definitely the videos highlighting yor dad's excitement. The first ones documenting the previous trips with your mom and dad were also good reads. While I enjoy reading your reports for products I aspire to fly, my favorites have been the more personal ones detailing your excitement and impressions as well as that of those close to you.

  27. tiffany l New Member

    this heads-up helped me take some great trips! https://onemileatatime.com/when-to-buy-miles/

  28. Chico Luz Guest

    I have several favorites, but I will choose TAM's report for two reasons:

    - you were pretty high on bubbles, as you said;
    - it's your only review of a brazilian airline so far.

    Cmon, Rimowa, come to papa!

    https://onemileatatime.com/around-the-world-in-a-week-part-one-the-planning-process/

    this round-the-world trip using aeroplan miles was what inspired me to get into the miles game in the first place. if i remember correctly, there happened to be an AMEX platinum 100k sign-up bonus some time that year, which i took advantage of. this netted me enough AMEX MR points, which i transferred to aeroplan, and enabled me to do my own first RTW miles trip. all thanks to you, lucky!

    I enjoyed when you took the private jet down to SAN from SEA. ( I think those were the city pairs). It was funny how it seemed so nonchalant, like getting a cup of coffee. "you wanna ride in my private jet tomorrow?" "sure, why not?"

    This was not my favorite post but it was the one that introduced me to that grouchy old fart Frank.

    An earlier comment mentioned the post which featured Lucky's coming out. Lucky did it in a matter-of-fact, so-what manner but it nonetheless brought a big smile to my face.

  33. Frank N Guest

    I absolutely LOVE all of your airline trip reports! I could never choose a favorite airline post, but I really loved your post about Tierra Santa while in Buenos Aires. This is one of your most memorable posts, in my opinion, since it literally left me laughing out loud :D

    I generally like your blogposts, there was one however that striked me most.

    https://onemileatatime.com/review-emirates-first-class-a380-los-angeles-to-dubai/

    Where your dad drinks the most expensive drink from the emirates bar and is delightful that he is given the opportunity to have that drink together with you on a unforgetable journey.

  39. Tim Guest

    The trip report with your dad was epic. But my favorite one was the ey a380 F report

    I am new here. Just been flowing your posts for a couple of months.
    However, it was very special to read about your round the world with your father. That was very thoughtful and sweet. I lost my father when I was 23. I had been attending college in the USA and he was in Brazil. He never had a chance to travel abroad and now that I have seen a lot of the world, I think of how fun it would have been to take him around, had I had the chance. He loved the Blue Danube waltz. So, when I went to Vienna for the first time, I jumped a fence and raced down to the river to place a photo of his with some flowers on the river.
    Good for you for traveling with you dad and sharing about it.
    I did however, take my 91 year old mother to Portugal, Spain and Madeira island when she was 80. Her grandparents immigrated from Madeira to Brazil back when. We even got their married certificates. So, yes, taking your father around the world was sweet. So, it will be taking your mom ( if you have not yet) to Asia.
    Safe travels...

    The way you described this made me laugh so hard when I read this(not that the flight was fun). I felt like I was on the flight.

    Probably the best in-flight service I've ever read about -- certainly never experienced! Plus the fact that it was your first meeting Wong Ching / Janesis makes this TR memorable to me.

    I love Air France - their service is excellent and the product is polished. Granted I haven't flown many of the Pacific brands, but Air France is still my favorite for trans-Atlantic. So my favorite post is your review of the Air France lounge in Paris. So over the top! Amazing food, a spa, and even a gift from the lounge! I also love that they guilted you into having some wine!

    I guess that off all the posts, I enjoy reading about the ones you wrote about you and your dad's trip. I can imagine being with my parents and see their surprised faces. It would be invaluable to see it happen. You are really "Lucky" to have the trip with your dad and now with your mom!!!

    3) It is beginner enough that I can forward people new to the hobby

    Hi Lucky,
    this post: https://onemileatatime.com/best-award-ticket-ever-canceled/ about canceling your best award ticket is my favorite post.
    The reason is not, that you cancelled this award ticket, even though I admire you for making this difficult decision. The reason is what you did and doing at the moment instead: you spend time with your mom and travel around with her. Your decision moved me, because I live abroad by myself since 2009. Due to the long distance I can't see my mom as often as I want. As probably every child I love my mom. I am graduating next month, so after reading that post from you, I started planning a trip for me and my mom. Since she is still working, it won´t be as long as your trip, but it will be a good one week trip to places she ever wanted to see, but would never go by herself. As a funny coincidence she just had her 60th birthday.

    As probably most of your readers I am an aviation geek. So I really like to read all your flight reviews etc. But the post of canceling your best award ticket and making a trip with your mom made me really think about how I can spend my money (since I don´t have that many miles) or my time better. Thank you Lucky.

    Please keep on writing.

    Greetings from Austria.

    So like everyone else has said... I do love virtually every post.

    I think that even though the first post I ever read here where I saw your photos from first class (it's been so long I don't remember the specific airline) and it really spiked my interest in this hobby would be a top contender, kicking off your round the world trip with your dad was really special: https://onemileatatime.com/best-trip-ever-introduction/

    Generally, onemileatatime is what got me into the whole frequent flyer/travel bug - so kudos on that.

    My fav however was this - https://onemileatatime.com/a319-a330-a340-a350-a380-777-captain-walk-bar/ Which had nothing to do with being on a plane OR physically travelling, it was just observing the interactions between 6 pilots, and making sense of it. Quite funny, especially everyone's reaction to the A350 pilot - who was quite clearly the rockstar of the day.

    I hope to see...

    China Southern as others have already noted was one of the best, purely because it was so different than your normal reports.

    There are lots of reviews that I really liked, but it´s tough to choose one. A classic Lucky airline review to me are https://onemileatatime.com/singapore-for-the-weekend-lufthansa-first-class-new-york-jfk-to-frankfurt/ and https://onemileatatime.com/singapore-for-the-weekend-singapore-airlines-first-class-singapore-to-tokyo-narita/ (where is Janesis?)
    Of course, a classic Lucky lounge review is https://onemileatatime.com/singapore-for-the-weekend-a-day-in-the-lufthansa-first-class-loungesterminal-frankfurt/.
    And a classic Lucky hotel review is https://onemileatatime.com/chasing-the-a380-park-hyatt-tokyo/. Of course this was a romantic getaway, as no one would ever share a dessert with a “friend”.
    My favorite posts, that came to my mind,...

    I must be honest that I have not been reading your blog for very long...in fact, I have read through the comment here on this post to find what other readers find memorable.

    The sweater story reminds me of a similar situation I was in at Disneyland recently where I received numerous compliments on my shirt, even query to take photos of it.

    This one: https://onemileatatime.com/a380-extravaganza-skyview-lounge-singapore/
    But for selfish reasons. I was reading it and had the exact same reaction as the agent about why the hell you would fly in and directly out of Colombo again. I guessed there must be an alternate reason and that led to a google/flyertalk investigation which helped me discover the cheap F tickets on Emirates & BA back to the States from Sri Lanka. Bought a ticket immediately.

    This one is my favorite posts of recent memory. I am very partial to US Airways so I enjoyed the positive write up about their 330 and crew. You cannot beat the pretzel rolls! I also enjoyed the censored photo. I have been surprised on what is included in the content of some of their movies. It does make you check to see if anyone else just saw what was on your screen!

  126. Josh Member

    I know it's recent, but if I had to choose one post if would be the one with your dad's reactions after your RTW surprise birthday trip. Sure, I like tons of posts you've made, but it even makes me feel good seeing you use your extensive knowledge of first class products and award booking to treat your dad to the trip you did. Seeing his responses and reading the whole TR really was amazing!

From your recounting of your conversation with your mother (hilarious) to the overabundant absolute glee that came through in that post - it was so funny and made me laugh so much that I have read it over several times when I need a smile.

    I especially loved it when the flight attendant asked if you had ever flown private and you recounted your initial thought process:

    •Option 1: *flailing arms and making noises like a seal* “OMG NO BUT THIS IS THE COOLEST THING EVER!”
    •Option 2: *look around as if I’m a private jet regular* “No, I don’t think I’ve been on this particular one before.”

    The pictures were great and the trip to the cockpit was very cool! Just one of my many favorites which keep me reading your blog. Congratulations on 7 great years and here's to 7 more!

    I can't put into words why exactly, but its the combination of it being so unattainable on miles and that you took advantage of it during a brief period after which it more or less ceased to exist.

    The discussion of using Chase Sapphire credit cards three years ago changed my outlook on earning points and overseas transaction fees. It made me really think about the corresponding money value of points. I changed from a US Air MasterCard over to the Chase product and haven't looked back. I still have that MC but really for the added features of free luggage, 1st class check in and quicker boarding. Thanks for being both entertaining and educational.

    Hello from Singapore (and don’t be a douche… like me)! https://onemileatatime.com/hello-from-singapore-and-dont-be-a-douche-like-me/

    I would have like to be there to see that happen.

    even though I've been a reader of your blog for 2 years now and have pretty much read majority of the posts even from before I started reading the blog, personally I love each and everyone of them that involve your parents. It's absolutely amazing how your passion can and has helped bring joy and excitement to their travels over time. I can relate to it now because I've been trying to do the same...

It's absolutely amazing how your passion can and has helped bring joy and excitement to their travels over time. I can relate to it now because I've been trying to do the same for the past 1 year. So yes I love your posts related to your travels with your parents.

    I liked your trip report last year. It was just great to see what you experienced and gives me ideas for my own trips and what to look forward to!

    "Is Qantas A380 first class award space between the US and Australia a myth?" I have an obsession with all things Australia at the moment. I got a chuckle out of the title of this post.

    So as a newbie…..I just have to say I enjoy them all …….I have learned so many helpful tips etc I can't possibly pin point one as I am still learning and everything is new and exciting !!!

    I liked best the post from Brussels when you found out about La Compagnie's actual launch, snagged a dirt-cheap ticket, and sprinted to catch the next train to CDG for the flight. After all that corporate "stalking," pure excitement & adrenalin!

    The picture of your father behind the first class bar was pretty good, too.

    I love your Beginners Guide To Miles and Points. Had to read that when i started staying in hotels and now i am a hilton gold member and a spg platinum. All thanks to you!

    That cab driver, Jeff, on your recent trip to Vegas. He kinda sums up every bad Vegas stereotype, LOL, and why renting a car there, even for a day, is totally worth it.

    The reason: This quote.

    I again said “napkin,” and made a rubbing motion on my shirt as if I was trying to clean it. She comes back a minute later wearing gloves with a box of Kleenex tissues. Maybe she misunderstood the rubbing motion I was making? I dunno…

    It was tough not to pick the post bubbling with euphoria after you were on the Hello Kitty flight though.

    I can't hear enough about the high end airline products that I'll never get a chance to use myself - such as the "Apartment".

    I really enjoy your post about locations I'm going to in the future. Reading about your adventures in various posts about Abu Dhabi and Dubai definitely got me thinking about attractions to see and experience.

  163. A. S. Guest

    There's absolutely no way to pin-point a single favorite post. Not only because there are so many of them, but also because my memory will necessarily fail me and I'll only think of the recent ones, which isn't fair since your older posts also include some of your finer posts. So I'll just leave this comment in order to win the Rimowa thingy. Hehe...

    The RTW trip with your Dad. Such amazing gesture and adventure.

  165. Patrick Member

    I loved the videos with your dad and the joy and excitment you both shared during that trip. I hope you are enjoying the trip with your mom.

    I really liked the post about the loud people going at it (hourly business actually ;)) in the room next to you. The follow up comment was even better!

  168. mason Guest

    i've really enjoyed your posts about living in hotels. I've plenty of EVA amenity kits, but I wouldn't mind winning some other goodies.

    Hard to choose just one, but I'd say that this:

    This post helped me to book my trip to French Polynesia later this year :D

    But I am sorry that the most memorable ones were the ones you traveled with your mom and dad.

    La Compagnie review. Besides being the first to review a unique product, it was also very entertaining!

    This one for no particular reason other than it's the first one you ever tweeted as @Onemileatatime.

    The Last Aeroplan Hurrah: Asiana First Class Seoul Incheon to Frankfurt

    Reason: I was googling "Asiana First Class Review" before my Asiana flight and that's how I discovered your blog.

    I'm pretty sure it wasn't Lucky's favorite trip to take, but for the pure holy-crap-that-really-happened value...

    The China Southern A380 trip report.

    Just about ALL of your posts are my favorite posts, but the one that comes to mind first is the review of the Champagne on China Southern...https://onemileatatime.com/review-china-southern-a380-first-class-los-angeles-guangzhou/

Definitely the story where a stranger wanted to buy your sweater! Also, when you wore pajamas in the terminal.
