unexpected upgrades…

For sure it’s never easy for me to leave India…and each time it gets harder…but as i checked in at 4.00am in Hyderabad for a 11 and a half hour flight to Heathrow and the stewardess said these magic words ” We are just going to upgrade your seat to World Class to make your journey more comfortable Madame…”, well i experienced a moment of pure, superficial, shallow and unadulterated joy and had to restrain myself from leaping over the counter to kiss her…

What you get with BA Club World:
Fully extendable seat where you can lie completely prone if you wish…

A little washbag with Elmis goodies, better socks and a nice quilted blanket…

Drinks (including champagne and cocktails as and when you wish) – i admit to taking full advantage of this… Hot towels on tap…Food and drink served course by course on china plates and in glass with real cutlery:

breakfast just keeps coming, muesli, pastries, Indian dosa (a spicy savoury crepe) and upma (a savoury porridge)…

A bigger TV screen…

To be honest i landed kind of exhausted as i so did not want to miss the experience of the upgrade (never happened to me before) that i deliberately slept very little…here is hoping it happens again!

After 13hour cramped &sleepless fligths to Asia and Africa as I leave the plane and go through business class I HATE the people who got to STRETCH their legs..and so forth……But you totally deserved it after your intense time in India…xs
