Sorry for the delay on finishing this trip-report, I got really busy for a couple days.


My droid phone rings at three fifteen and I immediately go showering, I am supposed to be awake, alert and working for a whole day waking up at 3 am, this doesn't sound like it is gonna work well, it ended up working though.
4 o'clock and I'm down the lobby, took the taxi and in no time I was at the airport, as soon as I arrived I checked-in and the guy that checked me in was a real treat, polite, happy and willing to help, it doesn't get any better than this, boarding pass and lounge invitations on my hand and off I was to security.

After breezing throw security, I got to the lounge, which was good enough, had a coffee and soon enough they called boarding, I got a weird look for cutting the line, someone shout, and I just said, I just flew 60.000 miles in one year in top fares and give the alliance a lot of revenue, that's why they give me this black card which allows me to cut the line, I didn't bother hearing what he had to tell me though.

I was among the first aboard and stored my luggage on the overhead bin which thankfully was still pretty empty, we pushed back behind schedule and soon enough the beverage run and the small breakfast were on the way, I gotta say they are pretty disorganized though the FA kept going back to the galley, but she ended up providing me a second meal which I really thought would be denied, not bad, but she promised me some coffee and never came back.

even got a second meal! ^

enjoying Iron Maiden at the skies, life doesn't get any better!

Looks bad down there!

It rains in Sao Paulo, a couple days before the worst natural disaster in Brazil's history had happened near Rio de Janeiro.

A couple minutes behind scheduled we landed and soon enough I ran out of the plane, turns out that there was a huge line due to flights coming in from Europe, North America and South America, got throw the line and bought a couple bottles of wine and underwear in the duty free.

Huuuuge lines!
