  1. UAs engine didn’t blow off and it’s amazing that despite being lambasted in the comments for that garbage headline earlier this week you continue to run this crap. Boardingarea should really flag this blog for a warning if you keep up this garbage clickbait.

  2. Bob. Agree 1000%. In fact I wrote a similar reply an hour ago lambasting that stupid headline, and it appears he didn’t let it post to the site. Even got the emails acknowledging my post and following the post. What a jerk! Let’s see if he allows this reply to post!
    Very disappointing for a travel blogger – agree Boarding area should sanction.
