FWIW -- some of his commenters also said they saw the mistake fare. Guess it was real or they look really stupid now.

Update: Sorry if it wasn’t obvious, this was a late April Fools joke. Had a tour of Dulles today including a tour of the Air France A380, and thought this would be funny (and based on the mistake fare, fact that I had to travel today, and that the ticket was $69, figured it was obvious). Clearly my sense of humor doesn’t translate on the internet.

He did not post from on-board. Even his original post was claiming to post pictures from the flight he is going to be on.

If it wasn't real ( and I don't think it was) that is hilarious.

Btw, he isn't publishing the hate comments, he's only publishing the ones saying it was a good joke.

On that topic, here is a FT thread discussing which bloggers censor, and which don't.

no, but he recently mentioned it on his favorite redemptions post. I just don't get it. He wasn't even earning miles
