The Toe-Wriggling Joy of Being Upgraded to BA Business Class!
After a seventeen hour flight from Santiago to Sydney, (losing my 25th birthday while crossing over the international dateline) where we spent eight hours exploring the harbour, Craig and I returned to the airport to board our flight to Bangkok (for the full story of how I missed my birthday and gate-crashed into Australia, see here: http://passepartouttravel.wordpress.com/2013/08/07/8-hours-in-sydney-part-1or-how-i-missed-my-birthday-and-forced-my-way-into-australia/). While chatting to the lovely BA lady, we compared notes on our common home continent (Africa) and she wished me happy birthday. Unbeknownst to us, her furious typing speed resulting in a complimentary upgrade – the first of a life time! So my birthday was saved and we arrived in Bangkok refreshed, having been wined and dined in the air).
We love a story that has a happy ending!
