Today I am going to be blogging about the best plane ride I have ever had.
When I was younger my parents told me about their trip to the US. They were flying from Tokyo to Hawaii, and then the flight was oversold and my parents were upgraded to Business Class.
I thought this was the stuff of urban legends because maybe back then technology was not that great and maybe there was a bug in the system idk.
That was until something similar happened to me.
I was flying from Taiwan to Vancouver after spending summer in Malaysia.
When it was boarding time, my ticket wouldn’t go through.
Obviously I panicked. School was going to start in less than a week and I was stuck in Taiwan.
And then suddenly.
WALAO EH. SURE BO. But I won’t complain, I will take this. I ACCEPT.
It was really cool having the stewardess address me by my name.
But I was too excited and I downed in all in one sitting. Not my proudest moment. And I ended up KO for 6 hours of my 12 hour flight.
Turns out, I got upgraded because my seat neighbour had requested earlier that the seat next to him be empty, but since they oversold the flight, they couldn’t save the seat next to him anymore, and they had to upgrade someone.
I ended up being taught how to fly businessby my seat neighbour, Bill.
I had my own flight slippers. And toiletries. It was kind of a big deal.
So I can personally vouch for it! Airlines do still oversell their seats and I suppose chances of you getting bumped up is higher when you travel alone…maybe. The point is that it still happens.
I must admit that ever since then whenever I fly I always secretly hope that I will be upgraded again hahahahaha
Unlikely to happen again though haha, I feel that the next time I get to fly business will either be because I collected enough miles or because I can afford the ticket. But I think economy class isn’t that bad, I’m not so tall that I cannot stretch out my legs at all so it’s still pretty good.
