Last fall, when British Airways massively devalued its Executive Club program, I went on a booking frenzy in the final hours of old award chart and booked a number of trips, including an 80K business class trip on LAN to the Easter Islands. Now the travel date has arrived.
I’ve flown LAN a number of times in economy class, but this will be my first time in business class. I am on a United p.s. flight to JFK this morning, then I will fly to Lima and Easter Island, stay a couple days, then fly back to Miami, where I’ll then pick up a separate ticket to go hopping across the country (a topic of another post).
I’ve got the whole day in Lima tomorrow, but I don’t plan to leave the airport—sadly, I am drowning in both award consulting and law school work, so I cannot say this week will be much of a vacation.
But I’m still looking forward to it.
