I think that another day another destination will become my catch phrase. It is cheesy but I like it and it definitely rings true with my life style.
Today was a different type of day. Yes, I had somewhere to be. I was flying to Stockholm to help with their software integration. But the destination was not the only reason I was excited. Today I flew on the giant of the sky – the A380! I had kept close watch on the Airbus A380 ever since it was first flown but for whatever reason I never had a chance to fly on it. It also didn’t help that my flights were always booked for me.
As this was a last minute trip I took it upon myself to book the flight, and lucky I did. I saw that the A380 was flying the route that I needed to go on – and I had also accumulated enough frequent flyer miles that I could upgrade my flight to business class! I knew this was going to be a great trip and upgrading the flight was something I probably wouldn’t have done before. I guess I am staying true to my revelations that I told you all about in my last update.
I have to say the experience was fantastic and one that I will absolutely be doing again. What made it so great for me was the extra perks. I was picked up by my own personal driver and whizzed through check in. I sat in the lounge and enjoyed a glass of wine and 15 minute shoulder massage to prepare myself for the long flight ahead.
On board I was given PJ’s which I quickly changed into. I wrote an entry into my diary, watched a movie and actually fell asleep! I had a capsule to myself and I think the privacy is what made sleep possible.
I was hungry when I woke up but lucky for the airline I flew with offers dining on demand. The food was fantastic and the staff were equally wonderful. I have to say I was a bit depressed when I realized we were descending and the flight was almost over!
I also have to say that I think coach has been ruined for me. I had such a wonderful flight that I can’t see myself flying in coach again (although I have to on the way back home!).
