First Class - First Time
So, today I had my first ever time in First Class - well I haven't gotten to the plane yet. I am in Miami Airport in the "special lounge." It makes me wonder how I never travelled this way before. Upgrades are the best!
I met a very interesting man here. I overheard him talking to someone saying that he was going to the North Pole. I thought that was odd and ironic. We began to chat. It turns out that he has an 8 year old son. He is a retired military pilot from Europe and travels 250 days a year for his job now! That is a lot of flying!
He told story about how he was going to see... SANTA CLAUS! For real! It was a fantastic story about how his son wanted proof that there was Santa and he had reasons to go up there for work. So, he decided that he was going to do what it takes to let Santa know about his son! I thought it was amazing and was so happy to see the spirit of the season in full force! Wow!
In case you were wondering, first class at night looks like this to Mr. S. !
Ms. Bartgen & your love bugs!
