Sup Travellers?! The other day I wrote about a couple who lost family on both MH370 and MH17. It's the worst kind of luck imaginable but one guy had the best kind of luck imaginable in the same two instances.

According to ABC News, Dutch cyclist Maarten de Jonge was supposed to have been on both doomed Malaysian airline fights. He had a ticket for Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, but changed his ticket at the last second. The plane still hasn't been found. He was also scheduled to fly on Flight MH17 earlier this week, but once again, something came up. That flight was shot down in eastern Ukraine.

In a statement on his website De Jonge, 29, confirmed he had been scheduled to take the doomed flight on Thursday but ended up changing his ticket for another flight this weekend.

“What has happened is terrible, so many victims, that’s a horrible thing,” de Jonge said in a translated statement on his website. “I have my story done and I would like to leave it…my story is ultimately nothing compared to the misery in which so many people are paid.”

De Jonge told RTV Oost in spite of his close calls with disaster, he plans on flying to Malaysia later this week and isn’t worried about the flight. 

Winning the lottery or having a hot neighbor is lucky but I don't think that any kind of luck can compare to cheating death twice. It's either De Jonge is incredibly lucky or has some supernatural forces on his side. Whatever the case may be, it doesn't change the fact that my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
