My last entry covered my flight from Richmond to Chicago. Now I an on my way back from Chicago to Richmond. I always check in to my flights online the day before and this trip was no exception. But this time something new was offered; United gave me the option to upgrade to first class for quite a reasonable amount (with my trip per diem I still am coming out ahead). So, I said “what the heck, why not?” and did it.
Damn. I could get really used to this. The steward seems happy to keep my glass of wine full (yes, an actual glass). I just had to stop him so i can actually drive home The seat is actually comfy. Hell, I even have a phone. Why do I need a phone?
And coincidentally, one of the stewardesses is also a Tolkien nut lie me. She brought my exact complaint about the movies (to the level of what they did to twist Faramir).
I could detail my trip, but it was not much fun and I don’t want to spoil the mood.
