A Big Surprise Courtesy of Northwest Airlines

We had a huge shock as we preboarded our flight for Tokyo. As Curt gave the ticket agent our tickets, some red lights started beeping and I thought our seats had been double booked. Curt had gotten us the best seats in coach thanks to the help of seatguru. It turned out that we had been upgraded to BUSINESS CLASS! WooHoo!! I hadn't flown in the first class section of a plane since 1986 so I was so excited.

Here I am in our seats. I couldn't believe the leg room! I also couldn't stop smiling!

The dinner menu. I thought we were in a 5 star restaurant!

The second half of the menu. Can you believe the choices?

I forgot to take a picture of the appetizer but here is the salad. It looked too pretty to eat.

I'm a huge fan of curry so I chose the curry chicken. It was delicious.

This is the lava cake. It melted in your mouth.
Now we have a huge problem! Could I ever fly coach again knowing what business class is like? But Curt solved that for me when he told me the price difference between coach and business class.

Oh Becky, how cool that you and Curt got to travel in business class! I got to fly first class from Providence, RI to San Francisco (roundtrip) several years ago and it was the best! I love SeatGuru, isn't it just a wealth of info? I would never book a flight without checking the guru out first! Looking forward to your blog in 2008!

Becky, I KNEW you went for that warm chocolate cake!

Sorry we didn't get to talk while you were home!

Ah! Fabulous. Doug and I got bumped up to business class when we flew over to Korea. We spent a lot of time sleeping in those lovely big seats. (Asiana airlines) And all the way back in coach reminiscing wistfully.

Ron: We can't live without SeatGuru and unfortunity I would like to add only flying business class to that. Maybe someday...

Holly: It was sooo great to talk to you yesterday. I promise my first trip when we move back to the States is to LA!

Helena: I don't know how I will ever be able to sit in a Northwest coach seat again. Although, we flew Korean Airlines once and were shocked at the leg room in coach.
