Class System...

Tuesday, July 10, 2012

Sitting in the first row of coach class during a lengthy flight, my wife and I were able to hear a flight attendant as he pushed a wine cart down the aisle in the first-class section. "Would you care for chardonnay or burgundy?" he asked the high-paying passengers.

A few minutes later the attendant opened the curtain between the two sections, offered wine to one final first-class patron, then wheeled the same cart forward to our aisle. "Excuse me," he said, looking down at us, "would you care for a glass of wine? We have white and red."

    Consider the absolutely ridiculous cost of first class the can have their Chardonnay and Burgundy. I'm leaving for 2 wks in Italy in Sept. My cousin upgraded her economy seats with her Amex points. I had enough Amex points to pay for m airfare. I'd rather fly free.

    For what the charge for round trip first class to Rome you could put a kid thru a year of college.

    *I'm not bitter because she'll be in first while I'm in economy. At least I won't be spoiled for my next long distance flight.

    We were upgraded to first class on our recent flight out to Cancun.

    Leather seats with more than enough leg room and adjustable head rests. Complimentary beverages, meals, snacks and a dedicated flight attendant. She even arranged for my 9-year-old to visit with the pilot before take-off.

    It's the way to travel if you can get it.

    Oh hooray for perceptions. It's like the difference between cow & beef - it tastes the same - shocking, right?

    Okay wait for this one - on my recent flights the first class passengers have shoulder straps with their seat belts. So the announcement came on "The captain has turned on the fasten your seat belts sign. First class passengers remember your shoulder strap."

    Nothing like telling us second class passengers to die die die
