It Was Oh So Civilized

We arrived in Barcelona this morning at 8AM, after a 7+ hour flight from Philadelphia. If you read my post from last Thursday you will remember my comments about being in the back of the bus. While we did not get a Paul & Libby style free upgrade, we did purchase an upgrade to Envoy, or business class when we were checking in on-line for the flight. It wasn't cheap, but less costly than if we had purchased Envoy class tickets at the time of booking. And it was much more civilized than coach. The seat fully reclined, almost flat, which made for better sleeping, such as it was. Meals are served in courses on plates, not plastic, and wine (free) was served in real glasses. Service was polite and attentive. Call me a snob... (you're a snob, Simpson), but it was a much better flying experience than being in the back of the bus. Oh, and there was plenty of overhead space. We also got to hang out in the Envoy Club while we waited on out flight to board, with free drinks and snacks. Yes, I know, nothing is really free, but let me pretend for now.

That's all I'm saying.

A good start to the trip. Hope it continues and becomes even better.
