Ok so right now I’m sitting in the Alitalia business class lounge at JFK. I’m waiting for my China Eastern Air flight to board. Several things are not boding well for this trip right now.
1. As you might have guessed if you have ever spent any time on Alitalia this lounge is a dump… literally everything is covered in a thin layer of gross. Other than the free Budweiser it’s not much better than the terminal.
2. I got here pretty early and have had a bit of time to research China Eastern Air. It looks as if their business class is slightly better than JetBlue’s economy seating. I realize no one reading this that knows me is very concerned about this. I sleep everywhere and anywhere no problem…. Still I had business class dreams and they are quickly being dashed..BTW this is a 15 hour flight straight through so nice seating would be a pretty big plus.
Anyway I’m on my way to Shanghai China for the rest of the week. Then Friday I head to Bangkok Thailand. I’m there Friday night I believe till next Wednesday the 3rd. Then I head home.
So, I have the weekend in Bangkok so I will try to get out with my camera and make the best of all of this… Don’t expect many pictures as this is a work trip….. work=noFun #thatsWhyItsWork
I’ve posted a picture of what the internet tells me Shanghai looks like.
