I only had to wait 56 years, but I finally had my first experience flying in first class!! Boy is it going to be hard to go back to coach. First class buys you a trip to the board rooms where there are snacks: cheese, veggies and ranch dip, pretzels, crackers, animal crackers, beverages and at certain times, soup and fresh cookies. I had a 5 hour layover in Seattle so made good use of it all. The best part is the comfy chairs to sit in and read-much better than the main terminals.
The minute I sat down in first class on the plane, I was in heaven. So much room to spread out, soft, soft seats and noone to fight over elbow room on the armrest. The guy next to me seemed so far away-it was great. The stewardess was so attentive to refilling my cranberry juice served in a real glass. The flight was at 8:30 but they still served a nice salad on a real plate with real silverware. Oh yes, I could get used to flying like this!! What a different experience from my usual trips. Thanks Matt for the experience!
