Probably accumulated during the AS 50K bonanza
Ah, makes sense.

Keep collecting bottles of booze from F. You'll need them for the celebration.

So far I have 2 Blue Labels and a couple bottles of Vueve Clicquot and Krug.

FAs loving celebrating with us, too :)

Yeah, but I chose MRU because (as is customary for me) SEZ only had 777 and not A380  :D

Different strokes, different folks

But when we see a blog dedicated to the EK A380 which also pimps CCs, then we'll assume it's AJK.

Meaning what?

I think everyone would prefer EKs 380 vs. 777.

Not sure he loves them as much as he has an accomplishment as being the only one (in the recognized blogosphere) to have flown all of them in F.

...except for OZ.

I believe he's booked on QR and EY A380.

He's been trying to get on the EY A380 despite all their many delays.

Yea but a few more trips, and you'll have the most EK experiences.
Seems like the bloggers are more willing to 'settle' for J products these days, but you're still F'ing away.

So my MEL-SYD leg of my MEL-SYD-LAX-YYZ got canceled. I got stuck in Australia an extra day. An amazing UA supervisor in MEL spent 6 hours with me and took care of me. There were 200 displaced passengers. Most could not get flights out of Australia for two more days.

In the end, they put me on QF from MEL-SYD and then I flew AC from SYD-YVR-YYZ.

Reflections: Qantas is really nice. I would love to fly international with them on their A380 some day. Air Canada business is basically just as good as United global first class.
