Really, I should not be complaining. My original flight(s) to Beijing tomorrow had me leave the house at 4 am so I could catch the 6 am flight to SFO, with an almost 5-hour layover, and then on to my next flight to Beijing. I would have been in the back of the plane, in the middle seat, for both legs.

Last night as I was freaking out and crying inside about my 4 am EDT on Monday morning, I decided to see whether there would be a way for me to get on a later flight to SFO. What do you know? Up popped a non-stop flight to Beijing! Woohoo!

My original seat on this flight was 42F. After refreshing the page many many times, I moved up to 31F. Bulk seats do come with extra legrooms, yes. But they also come with increased chance of being seated next to a baby. (I am NO baby hater. But if I have a choice…)

More refresh. Refresh. Refresh. And now I am where I am.

I pray that 25E will be empty so I can fully recline (“Recline” in the cattle class is an exaggeration) without feeling guilty.

It is really sad that I will not be able to take advantage of free alcohol on international flights… (Drinking = Needing to “use the facility”)

I almost never drink when I fly because every time I do the bathroom breaks- not because I have used it but because I need to.

Good times.

Stuck on a plane with no working bathroom would be a nightmare for all!

Have a great trip. I know from living in Vietnam, what a pain flights to Asia can be. May you recline in peace, my friend!

*sigh* seat broken. NO recline whatsoever. Also the personal screen was broken too.

Cheers to the free alcohol on international flights… (That, or good drugs so you sleep…)

Was sitting next to a SISTER and therefore only had one vodka…
