Al loves flying business class- as far as he is concerned it is FIRST CLASS!
It starts out with champagne in the Lounge. Any time he can get into the lounge he does. This time we got in on a legitimate business class ticket, and not charm or the use of a friends and family pass. The lounge is always the most civilized part of the airport and a reprieve from the chaos beyond the gatekeepers.
Al has a special carry on pocket so he can see what is happening as we board the plane. He likes to get on early and plan is trip.....
What to eat....
What games to play....
And what movies to watch.
He likes the window seat so he can look out the window
And is a little embarrassed to admit that the plane food was actually pretty good (it was business class after all)
Al especially appreciated the lagniappe that KLM provides to their world business travelers- a little delft house with a sip of Genever inside. It began as a tradition in the 1950's. to provide the last drink of the flight that continues today.
Al is petitioning to always travel business class internationally from now on.
