I’m winging my way home now on American 1126 from DFW to DCA. It’s been a while since I’ve seen the insides of an AA MD-80, and now I remember why. I should’ve called my travel agent and booked the flight departing exactly 25 minutes later that was operated by a 737-800. Hey, at least I have wi-fi, and the crew seems nice. Thankfully, the person in front of me has not reclined. Hey, it’s his right to do so, but after watching the domino effect on the opposite side of the plane, I have to say I’m happy he hasn’t. It was one of those comical things that you really would have needed to see in person to appreciate.
I elected to spend 15,000 AAdvantage miles (and a $75 dollar co-pay) to confirm my upgrade in advance of my flight. Why? My flight from LAX to DFW was aboard a 767-300 for one. And two, after 6 days away, I was really in no mood at all to risk not getting upgraded. Frankly, I think a transcon flight is a pretty reasonable spend of miles, especially in this case. I accomplished a lot this week, and I was ready to relax. 🙂 And I am.
I’m working on my review of the Hotel Palomar San Francisco, which I should have done by Monday morning. Needless to say, I really enjoyed my first Kimpton hotel stay, and will look forward to more in the future. For now, I’m gonna kick back here in seat 3B, and chill. Have a great weekend!
