Trip Report Those Five Words I Love to Hear

Jump to last reply

Been another great travel day!

Arrived at the airport this morning for a flight to Singapore. A thunderstorm started just as I arrived, but it wasn't a bad one, so no significant delays.

When I got to the gate, they were already loading. When I presented my passport at the counter, they asked me step aside. Not to worry: I was bumped up to business class. Sweet!

Then, after the plane left the gate, the bad news from the cockpit: "We're number 10 for takeoff." Oh well, another 30 minutes to enjoy my big roomy seat. Sweet!

Got to Singapore, eventually. Took the MRT to my hotel, the Merchant Court. On checking in, the receptionist uttered those five words I love to hear: "Your rate includes free Internet." Sweet!
