Thankfully Ike and I were in business class where the seats are twice as wide and much more comfortable.
Ike wasn't sure whether he wanted to share the seat with me or sit on the footrest.
Once the video programming started Ike decided since the screen was much larger than usual he would sit in the seat with me.
By the time the flight took off it was about 2 AM, all I wanted to do was sleep but I forced myself to eat, I was paying for business class I was going to enjoy all the perks of it. The dinner menu was:
- Gooseliver terrine and duck rillette with fig and mixed salad
- Braised chicken in mustard vinegar sauce with green beans and celeriac-potato puree
- Gourmet Cheeses
- Vanilla creme brulee
The only good thing about the flight being delayed 4 hours is that I ended up arriving at SIN (yes that's the official airport abbreviation for Singapore) at the same time as my friend Michelle so we were able to share a taxi to the hotel. After a quick drink on the patio of the hotel bar I managed to sleep - hopefully jetlag won't set in again, once in a week is enough for me.
