The flying class

Having traveled just recently, the only thing that came to my mind when I read the prompt was ‘First Class’. I love flying. When the flight charges were very very cheap and the domestic airport was inside the city, I used to fly to my home town very frequently. Used those airplanes like a bus. The international flights are a different thing. I so want to fly in a A380 once. And if possible in First Class. Don’t you think it is not nice of those people who make us walk through the First Class and Business Class to reach the Economy Class seats in the flights? In most cases, the social order is the other way round isn’t? Or at least they should let the economy people go through a different entrance 😦 I usually end up wondering how it would be to stretch my leg in a first / business class, after my 8th hour into the flight. And the other worse part is, a day before you checkin, you see an email that I could get an upgrade to either of those unreachable classes. When you click those emails and read them, it will be for the connecting flight which has the least travel time (in my case it is min of 1 hour to max of 4 hours, whereas the rest of the journey would be 10 hrs to 21 hours depending on my destination) and that too for an abominable amount. I always delete those email after cursing them for a couple of minutes. One day, lady luck will smile on me or may be I will end up spending my hard earned money, to experience the pleasures of a First / Business class, just once. Knowing me, I would end up feeling a lot guilty throughout the flight for spending my money on a few hours of comfort.

    Maybe you won’t feel so guilty if you think of it as a one-time thing… Maybe add to a bucket list or something. 😛

    It’s too short a time to put it on your bucket list and the costs are prohibitive. I would get up and walk around the plane when on a long flight. You don’t have to stay in your seat.

      🙂 Are we allowed to get into the first class area? I do walk around and do a little bit of stretching. But when the first class people get the food first and special drinks as soon as they are seated, I wonder what if.

        I don’t think you are allowed to walk around there. You certainly can’t use their WC. I walk to the back of the plane and do a bit of a loop.

    I have flown the A380 several times from US to Dubai but not on business class. Waiting to accumulate my miles for that experience, that my husband says is worth it. Good luck 🙂

    Ah… the possibilities of turning left once you board the plane, rather than turning right. One day, maybe! 🙂

    When I was traveling a lot, I would get free upgrades after a certain number of frequent-flyer miles, but never got to use them, because whenever I tried I’d get “I’m sorry, First Class is full.” Finally I stopped asking. I have flown first class a few times, and really don’t see the point.

      That’s so sad. What’s the point of those miles then.
