(Continued from Part 1)
Apparently it’s not enough that you get a cushy armchair in Suite Class. Nope, they had to add a second seat in each suite, just in case you wanted to invite someone to join you for a cosy chat.
All your hand-carried luggage is meant to go under the second seat, which was wide enough that I could fit a cabin bag, my handbag, and my shoes side-by-side with a few inches to spare.
Here’s a snap of a suite from the outside, just to provide a little perspective:
And there were some nice little perks provided just before and after takeoff, too:
For our meals, James and I opted for the “Book The Cook” service. This lets you choose from different menu options besides the standard in-flight meal while you’re checking in online. I selected a dim sum breakfast:
I meant to finish posting about the in-flight meals in this post, but this was the point in the flight where I decided to take a nap. Which brings me to something even more exciting than lunch: the part where the cabin crew transformed my armchair into a bed.
I just wish I’d been able to get a picture of how James’ bed and mine were made up almost seamlessly side-by-side, with the smallest gap in between. The effect was of two single suites transformed into a double suite containing a respectably-sized double bed.
And as you might imagine, what followed was the best damn sleep I’ve ever had on a plane.
