I believe I started a thread about this, but for me it boils down to this:

When you fly coach, vacation doesn't start until you get to your destination. When you fly first, the vacation starts en route to the airport. Business is somewhere in between.

It is for that reason (among a couple of others) that I like flying F and reading the reports of those who do as well.

To each their own, and I respect your viewing the plane ride as a means to an end, but perhaps try flying one of the premier F products (if you haven't) and your perspective may change.
I hear your point as well. I would probably enjoy one of those flights- def not happening any time soon :)

Why not ???

If you fly (which you seem to include), why not spend a little more extra.

I guess if living your life vicariously thought other people, is your thing, then trip reports may be exciting  I understand that some people are in to the flying culture - for me it's more of a way of getting to the destination, not really the part I look forward to.
I think it's a combination of an exciting place, getting there in an exciting way, and staying in a nice place, hence my approach to a TR.
Sure you can't always get all 3, but that's what makes a TR like MLE a hit.

But I find nothing exciting about the disease of writing 35 part TRs.  Post after post about each connecting flight and about a single hotel room? Snoooooooze.

You know, there is a middle ground between your posting style and MMS' :)

I quite favor the 5-8 part TRs. Gives more flavor to the parts in which I'm interested.

With a wife and 2 kids a little extra  turns in to a lot more extra - expecially with the limited (compared to DDFers, not to regular people) number of miles/pts I accumulate.

The TRs on this site are actually interesting for the kosher food / Jewish sites angle. I really have no interest in any of the other TRs on any of the other sites. Once in a while I read Vegas TRs on tripadvisor, other than that they are so extremely uninteresting.

You may if you start planning a trip to one of those places :P

The 5-8 part TRs are usually 6 on the planes, 1 on the hotel, and 1 on the place.
My take is that pics of the plane and hotel are nice, but they don't deserve their own post and are covered just fine in 1 TR.

My general feeling is that it's good to have different bloggers writing in different ways. To each their own. Different people enjoy different things.

i actually found the best part of the tr's was the comments from the commentator who has since been banned
