Hi everyone! Lisa and I thought we’d post a little something extra every few weeks. When we were batting around ideas while lost in my car, we came up with the idea of Things Romance Heroes Love. Now, we all love our blue collar men, tough cowboys, and lost demon souls, but we are focusing on our traditional alpha billionaires. The ones who are able to enjoy some of the finer things in life.
Like flying first class. This has been on mind since I’ll be putting in 12,000 (yes, you read that right) miles worth of travel time in economy over the course of 10 days this month (someone send help). So, I got my very own romance hero to tell you why it is worth the upgrade.
I have no idea how any manages in the back of the plane. First off, I can’t even begin to think about getting through that boring safety briefing without a glass of champagne in my hand. The real stuff. Not sparkling wine, but champagne. And where exactly do you keep your drink while in flight? On your tray table? You can’t do that very well while catching up on your company’s latest financial report.
Is it even possible to get your legs into those seats? Not if you’re 6’4″. I like to be able to stretch out a little, not keep my knees next to my chest. Besides, for my longer flights, I prefer to be able to recline properly to get some sleep before I hit the ground running. It’s really a necessity if you’re traveling between continents on a weekly basis.
And what about the lavatories? One for fifty or more passengers? How is there ever a time when you aren’t standing in line? I much prefer to be able to relax and take the time I need to freshen up.
I find upgrading to be not only a great way to ensure I enjoy the flight, but to make sure that I’m treated like a human being, not part of a cattle drive. Of course, I always upgrade any travel partner I have as well. Sipping champagne is so much more enjoyable with a beautiful woman sitting next to me.
How about you? Have you ever upgraded to first class? Was it worth it?
