Comfort

So D told me today that he got first class tickets for Orlando! I am absurdly excited. The only time I have ever flown first class was by accident. We were in Italy years ago and missed the flight back to the U.S. So we sat around the airport in Rome and eventually got on a flight to Dublin. In Dublin, I guess they felt bad for us because we had been sitting in an airport for hours, and they put us in first class. It was the lap of luxury. The seats were enormous and the food was really something else. They would bring out apple pie with ice cream, and later they brought out warm, melty chocolate chip cookies. It was actually more food than I could eat, but I appreciated it. So this will really take the edge off of flying with two small children :) D said it didn't cost much more, it guaranteed us seats together, and they won't charge for checked luggage. So, all in all, a good deal.

I love first class! We have taken it a very few times, when my husband has accrued a lot of points. It really spoils you. Enjoy it!

Got to take it once to Brazil on standby tix. Champagne and ice cream and that was just when we first stepped onto the plane. Full-reclining seats for great night's slip and steward slipped us an extra bottle of wine to take home. Really another world!
