World Traveller Seat 40K
Boarding was started almost as soon as we arrived at the gate, with the pre-boarding of family and those needing more time… Then one of the gate agents came and checked the boarding passes of those using the “Fast Track” lane to board checking for First, Club World and Gold Executive Club card holders. Once on board it was a long walk back to seat 30 F, it is lone time since I have been this far back in a 747 I thought to myself, in fact it was over 12 years since I had sat this far back!!!
Slowly the cabin filled up as people started to take their places it was clear that the plane was going to be very full down the back… Once we were all on board and all the doors shut we made our way out runway 09R. Climbing and turning steeply to the right as took off and then making our way up over Scotland and out over the Atlantic. The crew made a leisurely start to the onboard service offering a drinks round first then the meal. In between the drinks round and the food being served the Cabin Service Manger came and introduced herself and offered me a glass of Champagne, which I gladly accepted.
A quick look through the films and there was actually not a lot of films which I had not already seen of which I really wanted to see… so I settle down and watched again “The Grand Budapest Hotel” followed by “Deadpool”. The meal was good with a choice of Chicken Curry (Pasanda) or Vegetable Lasagne. I opted for the Chicken and was not disappointed. I did after the meal fall asleep in the middle of “Deadpool” so I have still to see it all from beginning to end…
Later on I wandered round the cabin talking to the clients and checking they were all OK and sorting out the logistics of arriving at ORD and collecting everybody before we transferred to our hotel.
After the electoral tour I managed to watch “Eye in the Sky” before we landed arrived at ORD on runway 28C
