About 3 hours before our flight we arrived at the airport and checked into the Business Class Lounge. It was pretty huge with quite a large spread of food and drinks both non and alcoholic. There were also 2 separate stations set for chefs to serve out fresh pastas, soups and local dishes. Once settled and fed I headed for the showers, another feature of a great airport lounge. It was pretty busy so the attendant put me on a list. Before my drink was done my buzzer went off.
Once we boarded the plane it was time to explore my pod for the next 18hrs.
My first impression was WOW! This is nice. It felt new and was quite spacious. Just as good as some First class cabins we have been in.
They announced the main meal service shortly after we took off. This part is odd because who wants a dining experience in the middle of the night? We asked to have our meals later and set up the bed. The seats ‘reclined’ but not all the way down flat. You had to get up and flip the back rest down for the lay flat. Personally I like to stay in my seat and let the motor go from seated to flat.
Or enjoying a shave, massage and then a full serviced meal in the Etihad First class lounge. Cigar and rum complements of Cuba. Yum! Then getting cozy in our little cubical at the end of the day. (Each Used 115K AA Advantage Miles)
Yes, ‘The Worlds Longest Flight’ SIN-EWR was a fun and comfortable experience but I’m not sure I would make an effort to do it again. Oh well, box checked. Now for the next adventure.
Whats the longest you’ve sat on a plane?
