I was by myself on the 2 seat side of C+ but ended up getting moved to 1B right before the door closed after 2 people no-showed (was #5 for 3 seats at gate). Honestly, I might have been better off with my own row in C+. I generally avoid bulkheads because I’m tall, the flight was too late for dinner service, and the FA was not very forthcoming with drink service. Still, I wasn’t going to turn down F, especially now that UGs are rare as a lowly FO. 😀
I enjoyed having the whole row to myself. I slept well.

It was like they were all competing to be the voice-over for the next Godzilla movie.

So, knowing my luck I’d be in for Part Deux of the Godzilla Auditions. I’ll be dead tired, and skipping dinner, so I’m hoping 1C will give me the best shot at getting some
decent sleep.

I'd go with 9J and bring ear plugs (I think they may even come in the amenity kit)

The hockey guy who sometimes seems to fly DL started a thread over in the Starriott forum about hotels eliminating down pillows, which he seems to think is a bad thing.The thread made me think of our buddy gooselee and his relatives. Maybe they'll be able to stay warm and cozy this winter. Yay!

BTW, I assume BMWs are manufactured without the use of feathers in the seats.

Woohoo!

Got my first-ever SSSS boarding pass — in Kiev, Ukraine of all places.

I feel special. So special. Can I have some of your... attention? Give it to me!

Thank you sir, may I have another?!

Also, I just love how Eastern Europe doesn’t pull punches and doesn’t do “politically correct.”

Not just Eastern Europe, I've seen those large dire warnings on boxes elsewhere (I forget where though). Maybe it's a duty-free thing?

Morning, Lounge. This morning was glorious, as Mr. Kipper started his new schedule for his new job. I was able to get an extra hour of sleep!
