And it's Friday the thirteenth. Could be pretty unlucky. If you are me, you wait while everyone boards, hoping someone will upgrade to First Class, leaving a seat for you, or that someone will surrender their ticket, take the $500 flight voucher and fly out the following day.
Almost the whole flight had boarded when the airline gave me the last ticket available on the flight. I flew first class (at no extra charge).
What do you do when you take your seat and the pilot comes out and invites any first class passengers who wish, to check out the 747 cockpit and bring your camera phones?
Well, if you're me, you are still feeling out of your element, in first class about to be on the way to Hawaii, so you panic and you can't decide if you should stand up, and you miss the opportunity.
But, Aaaaah! I am in Hawaii!
(Flying first class was awesome, by the way)
