Ah, finally. Spring Break is here which means I get to do a bit of “real” travel. Tomorrow morning we’re flying from Tampa to Dallas and then Dallas to Toronto on American in first/business class. Then we’ll spend the afternoon in Toronto, and finally we’ll be on the Cathay Pacific redeye to Hong Kong in first class. Gotta love American Airlines award availability!
I can’t even say how excited I am at this point. In general I hate the thought of yet another redeye, but I have a feeling that this 16 hour flight in a suite won’t be too bad. In a way I’m looking forward to the fact that it’s a redeye after my tortorous Las Vegas flight a couple of weeks ago.
As of now there’s only one other person booked in first class on YYZ-HKG, and due to the cabin layout we’ll hopefully never know s/he is there. I’ll be providing updates throughout the trip (including a few pictures), and the “real” trip report will follow shortly thereafter. Yes, that’s the 20,000 word, 300 picture report in which I describe everything, from the placement of the forks on the tray table to the size of the glassware. 😉
