Where I stayed
On a plane
What I did
Went on a plane
Got to the airport fine, Elle jumped in with her family and I drove with mine. Traffic north and south on the M25 so went through the middle.
The time flew and it was time to say goodbyes and we were off.
Snag, check-in desk. We was more or less the first people there, great:
"can we have exit seats please"
"yes sir I'm pretty certain there is a few available... do you have an onward journey booked?"
"We cant let you on the plane without an onward journey"
Now we're going by train down to Malaysia so we haven't got them booked yet, so we had to buy flights to somewhere out of Thailand from Bangkok so we could get on the flight
By the time we got back to book our seats after buying pointless flights, there was no exit seats grrrr...
Time flew again in the airport lounge, when i thought we was going to be having 3 hours to burn, it turned out to be hour and a half which disappeared.
Time to board, the gate number wasn't showing with about 30 mins to take off so had a guess to go towards 22-43. Turned out to be 35 so good shout.
As we was boarding i got the tickets out and we had 46e and 46g, ffs they have put us a seat apart. Complained to the stewardess and she said we can only ask the person to move as all full. She should know that her plane doesn't have an f or i probably for mix ups. First result of the trip, we didn't have exit seats but were in the same row so had the bulk head in front of us with plus' being:
1 - Extra leg room, Elle could stretch her legs and i could almost
2 - Toilets were up the other end and the 40 odd rows in front get curtained off from us so no-one walking past
3 - First to be served food.
So that turned out to be fine, uneventful flight. Good, first time Ive had my own TV on a plane!!
