Who Knew?

When you get bumped from your fight because damn United airlines overbooked your flight by almost 50 people (!!!) and you get put up in some airport hotel for the night and re-booked for the following day with an upgrade to Business Class for the first time in your life....you get access to this groovy little rich-person's lounge area with complimentary (the rich don't use the term, "free") internet, telephone, television, and refreshments -- including as much champagne as you can drink!

It's a whole new little world I never knew existed.

Yup, that is a sweet deal!

The airport lounge in Hong Kong is awesome - just one of the many perks of flying Business Class. I'm wondering if you also got a goodie pack on the flight filled with complimentary toiletries.

I'm sure that the long flight back was much more enjoyable in Business Class!

the problem with that new little world is that it is really easy to get used to... and it sucks going back to cattle class afterwards !

Ooh, I love everything that is free, and especially if it includes champagne.
