    Hi Ben,

    I just wanted to thank yu for the solid advice to your readers. Thanks to your tips and info, I have been able to book a few amazing trips with several airlines.

    I'm currently in Tokyo on a 7-day visit. I arrived on Tuesday from Chicago, and I had a wonderful travel experience with ANA (All Nippon Airways). I was the only passenger on first class and I experienced superb service. There were two flight attendants taking care of me, an they showered me with everything good ANA has to offer.

    Confession time: the flight attendants asked me what I'd like to drink, and I chose Kruger. So they opened a bottle just for me, and I almost finished it during the first 3-4 hours of flight. Then I went to sleep a bit, and woke up about 4 hours before our scheduled arrival in Narita. One of the flight attendants asked if I would like some more Krug, to which I said yes. She said the previous bottle was flat so a new bottle would be opened. I was amazed they actually opened 2 bottles of the outstanding Krug champagne just for me! And I have to disclose that I finished the second bottle just before our final approach to Narita began. I toasted to you, Ben, for helping us readers score these great deals.

    Thank you and keep up the good work!

    @ Octavio M -- Hah, excellent job on the amount of Krug you consumed. And yep, pretty standard for them not to want to serve "flat" champagne on the better airlines. Happy you enjoyed it!
