The Lufthansa First Class Terminal is Just Ducky!

Howard M. sends me one of the best thank you emails I could possibly receive. He writes:

Hey Gary – My wife [and I] really enjoyed ourselves on our recent EU trip, and we directly benefitted from your knowledge. Your recent EVA heads up couldn’t be better timed. Thanks for everything! Howard

And shared the following photo:

  1. I warn people against taking baths in public places. There is a nasty and difficult urinary track infection called interstitial cystitis and one can catch that disease in poorly disinfected bathtubs or jacuzzis. IC is very difficult to treat and can extremely painful.

  2. @Jason – you cray. IC is a catch all diagnosis not attributable to any single source. Carry on.

  3. Gary, don’t know how to contact you, but I just want to thank you as I am wrapping up an amazing month long vacation with my family partially thru the RGN mistake fare and will be going to the FCT in a couple of days. If you can spread the word, I have two rooms at the Frankfurt Sheraton for this Friday that I cannot use, and will go to any two people that you may want to choose, or first come first serve.

  4. @alex very generous offer, not sure how to implement and pretty short notice but truly glad this has all worked out for you!!
