| ||Well we are back in the U.S. This photo was taken from Newark Airport - I fly a lot of airlines and honestly Continental is the best because they have all new planes. On the way out we had the awesome 777, on the way back we had a 767 which didn't have the super cool seats but it was still nice. It was a 10 hour flight from Athens to Newark, then nearly 6 from Newark to LAX.|
A traveler's tip here: long flights go way better if you take 1/2 of an ambien. I took one at the start of the meal and honestly, I don't remember jack after that point. Missy took some photos of me that I completely don't remember - for example here is one of me drinking coffee! I DON'T DRINK COFFEE. I mean I drink it if it is iced, but not hot in a cup. So I asked her why I was drinking coffee and she said because I asked for it. I don't remember it!
We do fly first class all the time, but we do not pay for the tickets because of different reward programs. Before this happened, I would always fly in coach (even though I could've upgraded) because I wanted to lay horizontally across 3 or 5 seats. You can see it on the seat map just before you fly, and then I would look for an empty row, sit in the center of the aisle, and do something creepy like comb the hair of a barbie doll, or look like I am popping a cyst on my foot - anything to get the row to myself.
But I had an incident that stopped me from this forever. I reserved the center seat of a five across row on a 747 on a flight to Seoul, Korea. The flight before me cancelled so they filled my plane with the people from the other flight, so I got boxed in for 14 hours. I was done with that trick forever.
