Mine involves wine....

Pretty much just copy and pasted the links to Ben's trip report and then embedded his Youtube videos.

It appears TheForwardCabin plagiarized pfdigest.

I guess this is what P2B blogs do when they are featured on BA and run out of content.

I think this one certainly qualifies:

http://onemileatatime.boardingarea.c...Mile+at+a+Time

It's a really anticlimactic ending, especially as this is a club lounge at an airport Sheraton, not a Four Seasons.

I have learned my lesson and am not clicking on links that bait me to click on the blogger page that Baits everybody else. Oops just realized this is the running out of content page but maybe it should be in the bait click thread!

Lol. I actually clicked your duck registry. Very nice and I'm happy to say I have the limited offer World Cup duck as well as the spa duck with the facial mask.
Didn't click your link but now I'm tempted

At least this one wasn't as bad as some I've seen. I think Upworthy is writing the headlines for View From the Wing. This one was the worst I've seen:

What Are the World’s Busiest Airports? #7, 10, 16, and 23 Will Shock You!

Yeah, that was a cringe-worthy headline.
