Congrats on the First Class upgrade!

I would take full advantage of the opportunity. It is never too early for a cocktail when you're on vacation.

For first class! I would never pay the extra for it, but it is a wonderful little bit of Pixie Dust!

That's why I love flying Airtran....they almost always announce just before we board that they have open "business class" seats. If you get lucky and get them at that point, they only cost $49 more. Bradey and I took advantage of this last year when we flew down to Ft Myers to see my parents. I got some dirty looks when we got on (how dare you bring a kid in first class type looks), but as usual...at the end of the flight I got so many compliments on what a good boy he was.

Juliana isn't going with us in January.... it's a good thing too considering how much school she has already missed. We are thinking of changing our flight from Friday to Saturday.. (11/2 to 11/3) because she has already missed 4 days.

Well, good thing I'm not going in January then, isn't it? I wouldn't meet the Princess.

She is awesome!
I can't wait to meet her.

Sounds like a good start out on your trip! I'm sure you'll get a good view, just ask for a different room until you get one. It's what a couple of Dis'ers I know do.
We did First Class years ago (we had used some of Mark's miles and then we never did it again because we were always using his miles to get Markie free trips when he had to go to National wrestling tournaments. So this will be a special treat.

Gee....anyone I know who asks for a different room until it's a good one?

Thanks, D...we're very excited.

My pleasure to give you a mini-recap! Be sure to catch the next one as there is something special in it.

I do love my DIS meets. I met my bestest friend/little sister here on the DIS and the reason our trips are now 2 weeks instead of 1.

I am watching the clock slowly move as I get ready to go for my nails. I don't know how I'll survive the next 48 hours. And my boss is the best!

Thanks, Suzi. Be sure to watch for the next update because it will be mentioning you and the very nice thing you did.

I would never pay for First Class either...it is insane. $49 more to upgrade is not bad at all.

How dare they give you dirty looks. You have a great son and people should stop being so judgmental.

when we flew FC last year they gave us a really nice breakfast going and dinner coming back....warm wash clothes to wipe your hands, all the drinks (non alcholic too) you want and we also got free little movie/tv players

Thanks, MaryEllen. I've been with my boss 37 years and he is simply the best.

Yes, we love OKW, and it was cheaper renting points than going back to CSR and we want to say AKL again for our 30th anniversary next year.

I had a recap of our Monday and Tuesday all done and then my computer froze and I lost it all. I am too tired to start it all over again, so I'll do it tomorrow morning when I get to work (and try to catch up on all my subscribed threads then too).
