1. Eating Ice Cream Sundae at 30,000 ft
I recently returned from an Amazing trip to Asia visiting Japan and India. Our family flew business class for most of the 11 flights we took between various countries and also within India. Lookout for a separate post in the next few days on how I booked business and first class tickets on Airlines such as Delta and Etihad for a few odd dollars saving more than $20000.00 which I would have otherwise never paid!!! Below are some highlights from India and Japan
On my way back to the US I flew business class from Mumbai-Abu Dhabi and you will see my review of the flight and the Free Mercedes E-class pick-up coming up on the blog here shortly. My next sector was Abu Dhabi-Rome-Atlanta-Richmond that I booked using 70,000 Delta miles and $29. There are many ways to earn Delta Miles such as signing up for the American Express Delta Credit card or several of the American Express credit cards such as the Gold and the platinum cards which earn you membership rewards points which can later be transferred to Delta and many more partners. If not sure what card to signup for you can take advantage of my free 15-minute credit card consultation over skype by simply filling the contact form or leaving a comment below.
I had more than 30 hours journey time including layover. Thankfully to the free priority club lounge access I earned from the CNB Crystal Visa Credit card I enjoyed free meals and showers at the airport away from the masses. There is not much to talk about the AlItalia flight from Abu Dhabi-Rome so let’s get to the fun part of the journey – Business class flight from Rome-Atlanta on Delta Airlines. Each seat has a massaging option
The food selection was very good. I chose chicken for my main-course. It’s a unique experience to have a five-course meal at 30,000 ft and everyone should definitely experience it especially when it could cost you $50 or less. I was blown away by the ice cream sundae cart. You could choose from all sort of sauces and toppings. I ended up having the ice sundae with nice and warm banana pudding. The flight was 11 hours long and I left the airplane so fresh unlike my previous journeys in economy aka “cattle class”.
