Back in Los Angeles

25 03 2009

Only this time I’m sitting in the First Class Lounge and not the Business Class one.  Woohoo!

It’s a perk of being a member of the Qantas Frequent Flyer program and having flown so much in the last 12 months.

Even better, through the same membership, we managed to upgrade our flights to Business Class.  Comfy sleeper seats and pj’s.   Woohoo x2!!

Other than that, there’s nothing to report.  I was nice and let Mark be my guest to access the First Class Lounge, otherwise he’d have been next door in the Business Class one.  Not that there’s much difference.  This lounge is a little smaller, much quieter, has exactly the same food, the only real difference is the quality of the alcohol.   As for the food, there’s not a great deal I can eat anyway as it’s all got wheat in it.  Dammit!  Well not really, this is like an enforced diet, all carbs are limited based purely on my being allergic.

Ok, I’m gunna do some typing, kill some time, then have a nice hot shower, change into some fresh comfy clothes and board my plane.  We’re flying on the A380 again.

Back in Melbourne tomorrow!!  One hemisphere to another in a little over a day.

Rhonda…  Safe and pleasant travels to you.  Enjoy Seattle.

Enjoy the flight, and please remember to return all flight attendants to their upright position before landing 🙂

Hi Craig

Business on the A380 is pretty nice! 😉 I blogged about my experience heading over from Melbourne on Wednesday. In fact, you were probably on the same plane on its return journey! We arrived at 7:25 am Wed 25 March. I fly to Seattle tomorrow — the long way. Orange County to San Francisco, 3 hour wait in SFO for the flight to Seattle on a different airline. I doubt I can access the lounges though, as these are standard flights on smallish aircraft. Oh well, I’m learning the art of availing myself of unsecured wireless network connections 😉

It’s pretty fantastic isn’t it.
That’s quite amusing, and I believe you’re probably correct that we shared the same plane.
Ahhh yes, the unsecured wireless networks. It’s a sure sign you’re travelling too often when your computer still has them listed from your previous trip. 😉
Hope you’re having a great time.
