  1. Good riddance. Something upsetting: by then end of the summer there will be no more LH 747-400 new F!

    I know you and I disagree on this, but I think it’s the best hard product out there, with the possible exception of Etihad’s The Residence etc. The fixed bed is far more comfortable than any convertible seat, and eight seats in four rows on the upper deck feels far more exclusive and private than four across on the lower.

    The past two trips I took in May, we three passengers had the entire cabin to ourselves. It was what I imagine a private jet must be like. Perhaps better, since they were catered for eight.

  2. “I have taken a diversion to TPE and would do so again to fly the Hello Kitty plane.”

    Congrats and TPE as a diversion just to fly hello kitty is a great idea…especially since TPE is one the best and yummiest cities in the world!!!!! 😀
