Ha! Well, I've got a flight at the end of the month to CERN, and I'll be on Lufthansa -- I'm also hoping it has the internet. I seriously doubt that I'll get the upgrade (I don't fly them often enough). But I'll go where the cheap tickets are. Perhaps this time they will give me a decent seat rather than one in the back, bouncy tail.

Good luck with the sleep, and I hope the airline doesn't catch you out with the criss-crossed tickets!

Hey -- a few months ago I did a "day in pictures" as I moved from one end of the US to the other. I had fun doing it, but it was basically boring. I think you should do one of those. It would include a water taxi... so it would have to be great (http://qd.typepad.com/4/2005/02/day_in_pictures.html)

Hi Gordon,

Take with you two batteries for the laptop (no laptop power in economy alas) and buy the 30$ flynet connection when on board. It's fun!

As for me, I got a free upgrade on my return flight as well! Definitely lucky these days.

I sort of followed your advice about posting a day's worth of pictures. See my blog...

Ah, and thanks for visiting my entries here!

I just wanted to chime in with a w00t for Luftansa. It is one of the best airlines I have ever had the pleasure of being a passenger on.

No airplane thread would be complete without an airplane joke:
The worst airline disaster in Poland's history occurred today when a two-seater Cessna crashed into a cemetery early this *afternoon. *
Rescue workers have so far uncovered 826 bodies and expect to find more as the digging continues.
