Don't have time to read through it now, maybe M"S. I will say that maybe since everyone else stole your trifecta line, you'll have to go with Quinfecta  :P
Yup, that's one reason I moved away from it.

1. Trying out a table of contents for longform posts. Thoughts on it? I can change the background color, border color, link colors, etc.
2. Should we call this a Killer Quinfecta? Killer Combo?  Killer Quadfecta?
3. Any other typos or suggestions for clarity?

What is a Sunbeem anyway?
Is that like a folex?

Since when is BB used to indicate Billion?

K = thousand.
MM = Million (reason for double M is that M can also be used to signify thousand, as in MMXVIII for 2018).
B = Billion.
T = Trillion.

Please fix thread title!

1 seller review from over 2 years ago. Probably a scam.

Main issue with SQ is the hard bed. That is after they add a mattress pad on top of it, to make it softer. 9W, CX, JL, QF all have far superior beds.

The new SQ suites, does not seem to have fixed that issue. Still a hard bed and a seat with an awkward facing position during dining.

Here is a quote from OMAAT's TR:

Alas there is no perfect F option. But SQ/CX/JL/NH/EK will give you a good sense of the best it can be.

Neither EY or QR give anything close to a real F experience.
So what would you include in a "real F experience?" Just SQ, CX and EK?
EY is not real F?
If EY and QR are not "real," (I'd disagree), then EK isn't either.

On that train of logic, it's Asian or bust (something with which I also disagree).

The major factors are:

-Hard product
-Hard Product bonus perks like a shower

Random thoughts:
-US airlines F is dead due to poor service.
-The ME3 don't have consistently good service, though I found EK to be better than the rest. Service is a huge part of the F experience and bad service will kill the whole thing.
-Asian airlines like JL, NH, and SQ have out of this world service. CX service can be more robotic and less warm than the rest of the Asia carriers.
-SQ suites are a step above the rest for privacy and the new suites look amazing.
-CX has by far the most comfortable bed, bedding, and seat.
-EY's seat and bed are spacious, but not particularly comfortable. Seat recline is also poor.
-EYs shower room is tiny and dingy. Its' not nearly as enjoyable as the EK shower spa which is much larger and feels more like a Park Hyatt than a Holiday Inn.
-You won't find food and champagne/wine reviews here, so look to FT if that's important.
-Lounges like LH FCT are nice to try out, but in the end of the day I can lounge at my home as well. It's not what makes or breaks the product.

I should point out that my FAX service is available for this.  :)
"Subject: DO NOT FAX ME!!!!

So what should I budget for food? 1, 2 or three gold coins?

I hope you are joking.
Depends on the hotel though, I'd imagine. Ask for a menu and ask what the taxes and service charges add to those prices.

Is there an echo in here?
Jewish minds think alike.
Especially after seeing $25 beers and $60 pizzas on the menu. We have some rachmunis on you.

What's the O/U on the Lakers record this year?

Makes me think something did go wrong.
Don't need a 15 person team and a bone cutter to kidnap someone.
