Tomorrow is the first time in nearly 20 years I am flying British Airways westbound in Economy. I'm not complaining, it was of my own choosing. I wanted to get home fast. I have equipped myself with a good book, earplugs and a chocolate eclair from La Marquis de Laduree. I hope this and a decent cup of coffee at the airport will see me through.
I've flown American Airlines many times in the same class and with long layovers and survived. I've grown accustomed to the declining service, lack of edible food, vastly long layovers and non-personalized attention from my airline of choice. I think that is part of the problem - I have no expectations, I just expect meh service and to be exhausted when I get to Seattle.
I'm moving into new ground here with British Airways, wish me luck.
