I’m back in the U.S. for a few weeks visiting family and preparing a new Visa for the upcoming year. On my way home, I had the rare chance to fly first class on both legs of my trip. No, I personally cannot afford a first class ticket, and these were booked using skymiles. If purchased directly, this seat would have run between Eleven and Twelve thousand dollars. All in all, a very comfortable journey, but excessive in all forms of the word.
