Nope.
Who else?

Hollding hotel reservations and canceling them, rinse and repeat, does NOT count as visiting BOB even though Bemachshuveh you were there :)

If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

I.E. If you go on vacation and don't post pictures on social media, did it really happen?

That is not the idea. The idea about someone on DDF going to BOB is like Hershel, of course out of thousands of DDF members there sure is someone who did BOB, but who cares?

Why does everyone pick MLE over BOB?

Much easier to get to, more hotel options and better premium cabins.

My cooler with most of my POM meals got delayed to LAX . I had checked in 4 bags, only the cooler got delayed .

AA claims that it went out with the next AA flight and they will send it with the next air tahiti nui flight.

I had a 4 Hour connection in LAX, i ordered food from Nagila and had the food picked up and delivered to lax for $3.71 after a $20 off new account code.

The Uber driver picked up the food 5 minutes after the food was ordered and the ride took 39 minutes.

The walk between AA terminal 4 to TBIT was a easy 3 minute walk, but the security line was almost an hour of hell.

I departed with Air Tahiti Nui, J to PPT, which was nothing to brag about, KSML was edible, passport control and baggage claim was a breeze.

I took a 5 minute taxi ride to the IHG Tahiti, using a anniversary free night whuch i purchased from a fellow DDF member.

account user put in a request that i can checkin to the hotel, when i arrived, i gave my name, which they found, and checked me in, no questions asked.

Given that the account holder was a platinum member i was automatically upgraded to a lagoon view room.

My second cooler which contained kosher milk, yogurt and a couple of POM meals remained frozen solid nearly  24hrs out of the freezer.

How long is the stop in PPT? Apparently departures area there for flight to BOB is small, cramped and has no A/C
13 hours, which is perfect for me.
