It’s the third Fly&Dine Interview Giveaway and this time we’re talking to Scott from Hack My Trip. His site is an incredible resource for anyone in the frequent flyer game and make sure to check out his tips and tricks for getting the most out of your miles and points.
If you want to win a $50 gift card to The Counter (and who doesn’t?!!), read all the way through so you can answer this week’s Giveaway Question in the comments. Details about entering can be found after the interview.
Take it away, Scott!
You just took a major honeymoon trip to Asia a few months back. What was the best meal of your entire honeymoon?
Oddly enough, it was an extremely spicy dish with prawns and rice in a Bangkok shopping mall. (Only THB 89!) No one in the restaurant spoke English, and the menus weren’t detailed, so I just pointed at one of the specials. Mind you I can’t tolerate more than a little spicy food, and this was off the charts! I was actually crying. But it was so good I went back for lunch the next day and ordered it again.
What’s the best meal you’ve ever had on an airplane?
Do you have a go-to snack or meal when you’re in an airport? What is it?
Best hotel you’ve ever eaten at? What made it memorable?
What’s the absolutely worst food you’ve ever seen or been served during a flight?
That’s easy! United serves a so-called hamburger on several of their lunch and dinner flights. If you’re lucky, they won’t overcook it. But usually the bun is almost as hard as a brick and the patty with its sticky cheese has been moved to the side. Is it for presentation? I don’t know, but I do know that it’s a mess to put back together.
Thanks so much, Scott. I hope you find the breakfast of your dreams on your next trip. Now it’s giveaway time!
Have you ever eaten at The Counter? It’s incredible. They offer a customizable burger experience that you just can’t get at most restaurants. I started going years ago when it was just a single location and I’m astounded by how much they’ve grown. In addition to locations all over the world, they have two airport locations in San Diego (SAN) and Miami (MIA). Instead of grabbing the same ol’ grab-and-go Caesar salad that was made three days ago, order up a burger (or some AMAZING pickle chips) from The Counter before your flight instead. Do I seem extra effusive? It may be because the fine folks at The Counter are sponsoring this giveaway by generously offering up a $50 gift card to one random winner.
Giveway Question: What’s your favorite way to top your burger? All you need to do is leave a comment with your favorite burger topping (or toppings!).
