upgrade to business.
I flew out of LAX to Paeete in 2005 to sail on the Paul Guaguin and upgraded at check in. At the time it was $600. The flight was wonderful...I thought the food served was the best I had ever had on a plane (better than Quantas business class to Sydney and that of Thai bussiness class to Thailand). I did sleep in the seats that were very comfortable.....but I did not realize how good till I flew back in coach. That was cramped, crowded, typical airline food...I could not wait to get off the plane. This December I am going back and will upgrade....both ways if possible. Doing it at checkin is still cheaper than doing it upfront. How easy to do it when checking in at the airport in Tahiti...thats a good question.
So I will save the pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters, dollars, to upgrade. Yes it is a true luxury, but as they say go big or go home......or if you can afford to upgrade and dont...your heirs will.
Now if anyone wants to contribute........I'm not proud. LOL
