One of the perks of traveling with my dad while he is on business is being treated to the luxuries that I could never afford. I am going backpacking across Europe this year, and as my dad was planning on going to London for a conference, he took me under his wing and arranged for his company to pay for my flight across the world in business class. We live quite far away from the CBD, I knew we would need someone to take care of the airport transfers, Melbourne is an hours drive from our home. If going to Europe for a few weeks was not exciting enough, my dad told me we were being taken to Melbourne airport in a limousine. The people I know who have been on big trips like this always complain about airports and the long flights, but I experienced none of this trauma. The Melbourne chauffeured car picked us up promptly at 9am, I enjoyed the trip to the airport immensely. It’s so cool sitting in the back of limo, relaxing in style. At the airport, our business class ticket ensured that we skipped all of the long lines, getting the boarding pass was a breeze. Even getting through security and boarding the plane was faster. It’s going to be difficult going back to economy class after experiencing the wonders of the rich flyer. While we were waiting to board the plane, I once again enjoyed the benefits of my father’s company travels by gaining entrance into the gold member’s lounge. I was able to drink my coffee and enjoy a some raisin toast while my father and I talk about how much we enjoyed the ride in the stretch limo. I am happy to report that flying business class exceeded my expectations. The chairs they give you are actually comfortable, you have sufficient leg room and there are no crying babies in the seats behind you. On top of this, I had movies on demand and was given amazing service from the flight attendants. If the rest of my trip is successful as the limo ride and the plane trip across the ocean, I am sure I will have a fantastic time in Europe.
