Waiting for the next flight of course! (and I should add - a MUCH better lounge than the one in Chicago!) Unsurprisingly, I took the bump and got upgraded to First on United 531, with a 2 and a bit hour wait at LAX for my next connection to LAS. More soon enough... … [Read more...]
Greetings from Chicago O’Hare C17 lounge
Three letters. OMG. What a dump! And now the sorry excuse of a lounge at O'Hare. (Hmm. My Typo O'Hate - that seems to work too) TSA were as slovenly as normal as we played Security Theatre, and the film scanned by hand. I'm now on the bump list - so anything is possible … [Read more...]
And that’s it from Chicago…
... next stop LA then Las Vegas! I have a nasty feeling that there could be things that go "bump" in the night though.. … [Read more...]

First pictures are on the way up….
Greeting from the bar at the Hyatt. As I'm still hacking away my cough from hell, I'm a really pleasant person to know at the moment. So instead, the first pics from the trip report are starting to appear. How do they all fit together? What do they mean? Do we really care? http://www.photoblog.com/kevincm/2009/10/21/ - … [Read more...]
Trip report Teaser…
From 9H on a United 767-300 on 21/10. For non regular business class flyers - look at the seat angle. Correct. It's in REVERSE... What does this all mean? You'll have to wait for the actual report when I've finished writing it... ;) … [Read more...]

A hint: Switch your phone off.. and DON’T Drop the darned thing…
This entry will appear as I'm entering the USA. The joy of timed entries ;) That wonderful LCC Jet2 provides a salutatory reminder why you're reminded to Switch your phones off - but also to put it away carefully. Why? A poor phone dropped into an air vent. And it was still on whilst on the ground. The net result was a partial stripdown and rebuild of the cockpit and … [Read more...]
Breakfast is served!
Alas whilst the BMI Number One lounge may be excellent, its food offerings are poor. I've therefore decamped into the Star Alliance lounge for the traditional breakfast of Bacon/Sausage Rolls with far too much mustard, and an orange juice with vodka. At least I'll sleep on this flight.... (there's an automated post whilst I'm flying... it's a goodun) … [Read more...]
Good morning from the BMI Diamond Club Lounge..
And it sure is pretty. Here's a quickie shot taken with the Mac this morning. More later - I'm into my second coffee of the day, then Breakfast of Champions at the Star Alliance lounge.... … [Read more...]
