Trip Report Bangkok mileage run

Jump to last reply

I have not done my usual on the ground reporting this time as this is such a short trip! One week on the ground in Bangkok. That's it! I decided to do a biz class mileage run in order to keep my 1K status with United.

I flew the UA 787 dreamliner on the longest leg of my 30 hour journey to get here. I had one of the two middle seats in row one. Plenty of room, comfy seat, and no crawling over anyone! Food was OK. I managed to get some sleep (albeit restless), which is my usual way of passing the time on long flights. No movies of any interest to me. There is another thread about this airplane so I won't go into detail about the lighting and such. I will add, however, that my map feature did not work so the flight felt ever so much longer because I never knew where we were or how much longer the flight was! Grrr not happy about that!!

A report on the Sofitel to come next.
