Dear fan club…

I must have a huge fan club (or maybe just a single fan that’s very dedicated), because I’ve received four emails from this PERSON club over the course of less than two hours this evening. šŸ˜‰

This email is being sent from “Luckycoins fan,” whose email address is First of all, I’m flattered! So I wanted to take the opportunity to respond to your lovely emails one by one on my blog. And maybe instead of emailing them to me, we can make this the consolidated “ask your lucky fan questions” post (because I’m sure you all have sooo many questions you’re dying to know the answers to, like the ones below).

Email number one:

Dear Luckycoins,

My readers has asked if it’s true that “a real mileage runners are mostly nerdy type of person?”

Did you know United offer Economy Plus seating up to 5 inches of legroom.


Email number three:

Email number four:

Keep up the “IN THE KNOW ZONE” questions. As someone that flies United 250,000 miles/year, I had no clue!

Don’t worry FANS, I still love you…

  1. @Ben – Yes Josh was on Lucky’s SFO-SEA and SEA-IAD redeye flights back in either Jan or Feb. I remember being told he drank a lot of orange juice and he stared at Lucky the whole flight.

  2. I wonder if this United employee realizes his email signature is a United tip of the day, or whatever. Could probably get him canned if you forward all of these to customer service. I’m sure their IT could trace the emails. Seems like a waste of paid work hours, plus it’s border-line harrasment of a customer who flies several hundred thousand miles a year.
