GLH and I are going back to Zuerich in two weeks to finalize the paperwork and get the keys to our apartment. While there we will also select furniture. We need to order the furniture 6-8 weeks in advance so that when we move in January, we do not decorate with cardboard boxes or sleep on the floor.
Because GLH will also be doing business while we are there, the Company will pay for him to fly first class. However, as my official housing trip was in August we need to pay for my flight ourselves.
Since going into bankruptcy, Delta has made it virtually impossible to use mile points or upgrade classes. And neither of us is inclined to spend $7,000 for my flight. And while we have already started to collect miles on a different airline, we do not have enough saved up quite yet.
So here is a little quiz...
What did GLH do?
A. Purchased seats for both of us in coach so that we can sit together.
B. Purchased a seat for himself in first class and a seat for me in coach.
Yep, you guessed it. The answer is B. We will be separated by a curtain that the FAA mandates cannot be crossed. He will be basking in luxury with plenty of comfort. I will be alone in coach. Actually, unfortunately, not alone as I will likely be next to the screaming baby or the lonely passenger who will not stop talking to me!
