Business Class and the Crying Class

Travelling with Andrew is always charmed: we renewed our Admiral’s club membership and it’s worth it. If you don’t travel frequently, then I’d recommend getting a day pass (~$50) because the admiral’s club affords you a stress free experience prior to your flights. First, the noise free insulated room takes one away from the chaos of the airport; free internet usage (if you don’t have a computer) or WIFI connection, coffee, treats, TV, and bar. We experienced exceptional JFK’s Admiral’s lounge we managed to score 4 vouchers for drinks -that equates to 2 glasses of wine each -nice!

Also, Andrew managed to upgrade our flight from JFK to Heathrow to Business Class -this was the sweetest luxury we were able to experience for the bulk of our flight. Imagine collapsing in a Barcalounger with pillow and duvet for a transatlantic trip that includes champagne to inaugurate the flight. Additionally, we were given a wonderful little toiletry kit that included toothbrush & paste, green tea face wash cloth, eye mask, lip balm, body balm, socks and other miscellany all rolled up in a neat shoe bag. Meanwhile, we had all the wine you can drink, a great dinner while watching the movie of your choice. We awoke to breakfast and a voucher to use the Arrival Lounge that provides luxury showers & bath before moving on to your next destination.



Our connecting flight to Munich was late, but I wasn’t annoyed -until we boarded with 5 crying babies the entire way; the screams exhibited a pinball effect thru-out the fuselage. I’m thinking that perhaps we deserved this headache pounding inconvenience after having such a marvelous trip across the pond -not everything can go so well.

So glad to hear your flight was so luxurious. Too bad about those crying babies, but it does make one appreciate not having to deal with them on a regular basis...
