Club World Seat 62 K
Having gone from the First Lounge to see the other passengers who where traveling back with me I missed the opportunity to board the plane from the Lounge… However I was quickly aboard and found my seat.
The cabin crew were great making sure we were all comfortable and serving us all our choice of Champagne, orange juice or water. Amenity kit were handed out as were menus, which were very slimmed down as were were all supposed to have eaten in the lounge.
It was soon time to go, as we were all on board quickly and the plane was running a bit late on departure… As we had a very tight connection at Heathrow, it was important we make up all of that time on the flight.
Not knowing the layout of ORD and because I was too busy chatting the the cabin crew I am no certain which runway we took off from… oups..
I was not a long taxi and we were soon up and in the air. The crew sprang into action serving drinks and offering the very light meal which had been loaded, which actually was no better than the food in the Lounge!!!
Having had a gin and tonic and a whisky I thought it might be time to get some sleep… and I slept very well.
Awaking 5 hours later I went for a leg stretch and had a quick look at the very poor selection of offerings in the Club Kitchen… it was soon time for breakfast, for which I just had a bowl of yogurt and the panini… There was a lot of room for improvement.
Having made up the time from our earlier delay we were then held up having to stack for 5 minutes before landing on runway 09 L. It was then a short taxi to the B gates.
