eightblack's trip reports are also very good and, quite frankly, hilarious.

+1. While I've enjoyed scores of Trip Reports over the years, none has come close to eightblack's Holiday 2010 saga. It was simply perfect!

There are alot of fine writers here, but my vote goes to anything by eightblack who combines great writing with wicked humour to marvelous effect. ^^

Best ever was Eight Bottles of Dom, followed closely by just about any Seat 2A trip report.

Eightblack getting snowed in at the EK JFK lounge is an honorable mention.

Thanks for the compliment - anything that makes certain ones more interesting?

That said...no way to compete with the humour of eightblack - absolutely hysterical and talented writer.

Personally, I prefer a straight forward report. Not too much nostalgia for bygone days or too much abstract humor so I'm going to submit a Wild Card for entry:
