Flying first class

18 Jan

Have you ever flown first class? I never had until our recent trip to San Antonio. And I probably never would have except the bf is a travel genius. He knows how to find the best deals and always finds the loop holes. Point being: he’s a premier member on pretty much every airline, which puts him first for upgrades and gives him access to all the airport lounges. There is he below enjoying our complimentary Bloody Marys at the American Airlines Admiral Club lounge in Dallas. Let’s just say, I like traveling with him better than by myself.

So of course while we were waiting to fly to Texas, his name gets called for a free upgrade to first class. I’m not sure how he managed to swing it (maybe the guy at the counter was feeling extra nice on New Year’s Day?), but he upgraded me too, for FREE. It was the bomb.com.

I had way more room than my short legs could possibly ever need, a blanket to keep me warm, a real glass to drink from and breakfast on the house. It was one of the most pleasant flights I’ve ever taken, and now I know what I’ve been missing out on all these years.

The best part was spending the first day of year with my favorite person doing what I like to do best: travel. Although I probably won’t fly first class again for a long time, there are great trips to be had this year, and I can’t wait.
