Oh how I love these weeks, the weeks I spend the literal majority of the time on an airplane.
The Ethiopian trip begins tomorrow morning in Toronto…meaning I get to spend tonight in this delightful city. Despite the weak looney, I have several Canadian clients at Award Expert and am meeting two long-term clients who have become friends tonight. Toronto is a city I have connected through on many occasions but never actually left the airport. I’m looking forward to it.
I’m hoping my Ethiopian Airlines 787 aircraft will feature the new fully lie-flat business class seats on at least one of the two flights. With Ethiopian, it seems you never know until you actually step onboard. After a good flight from Dublin to Los Angeles, I’m looking forward to the onboard service.
I will spend the night in Bangkok (not at the Park Hyatt this time) then connect to Ho Chi Minh City where my return journey will begin on Qatar Airways.
While I considered a long layover to test out the Qatar Airways transit hotel program, I want to get back to my wife, son, and other business as fast as possible so will just be quickly connecting in Doha.
But 14 hours on the A350….#delightful.
Transiting from Kennedy to Newark is not my favorite activity, so I just booked a JetBlue flight back home.
I’m thankful for the job I have and for a supportive wife. It’s going to be a great week.
