Update from London Heathrow

Thursday, August 13, 2009

My flight from Hyderabad to London was long and not my favorite trip ever. I was able to sleep quite a bit. The kids behind me enjoyed kicking my seat and moving the tray up and down - during all 10 hours of the flight. I kept my cool and was very patient. When the kids began crying, I played peek-a-boo and we were all laughing by the time we landed.

Karma is a beautiful thing. After that long flight and a bus from the plane to the terminal, the woman at the British Airways check-in informed me that I had been bumped up to business class! She also told me that I could use the club level upstairs. I told her that I wanted to hug her and she let me know that it wasn't necessary. :)

So I found my way up to the club and the woman informs me of the services they have - free wi-fi, free drinks and snacks, and FREE SHOWERS!

After a 10 hour flight that followed an 8 hour work day, I felt like I had won the lottery! So I went and checked in for a shower and returned to the lounge with a new outlook on life.

I grabbed a few snacks and now I'm lounging around and for the first time ever...I'm appreciating a long lay-over.

I have a few more hours up here, and then I will be back home by 11pm tonight.

Much Love,

  1. Dude, that's awesome! Gotta love the free showers.

    I'm guessing you're already on the plane back, so welcome back to the U.S.!
