Well! We paid for the upgrade to business class for the 15 hour flight! It is certainly an excellent way to travel! Mike and I each have our own recliner seat with a TV. There are some excellent movies available. The flight attendant keeps offering beverages and newspapers and other amenities.
Upon arriving in the upper deck in the forward compartment we found 20 seats, paired. I took a picture and will try to upload them. I used the lavatory! It’s right by the cockpit; since the door was open, I took that as an invitation to be neighborly and introduce myself. It’s always important to know how the pilots are feeling! We want happy pilots! The lead pilot just came on and announced that we’ll be traveling north over the globe and over Russia. Hope for no international incidents!!!
They are going to close the plane doors – more from Hong Kong!
