LHR - SIN on Quantas

Tuesday, May 16, 2006

Booked a business class seat on Quantas to Singapore from London-Heathrow. Generally, I fly British Airways, so I admit I'm used to a fairly high class of service.

The seat is fairly comfortable on the 747 in business class. It's kind of a "pod", and it reclines all the way. It looks like the only difference between first and busines class is that there are a lot fewer seats in first.

The service is horrible. The menu says you can get your meal at any time, and since I wanted to sleep for the beginning of the 14 hour overnight flight, I decided to take them up on it. Getting them to even bring a sandwich took multiple tries. Forget trying to get drinks.

The only worse business class so far is AA.

Finding the Boots

Anyone who has had an expense account has heard the story of "Find The Boots." An executive goes on a business trip. When he arrives, it's raining cats and dogs. To avoid ruining his shoes, he purchases a pair of galoshes for $15, which he expenses under "Misc." on his expense report. A week later, the accounting department rejects his expense report, with a post-it note that says that the company does not reimburse for items of clothing. The next trip, the executive turns in an expense report without the galoshes, but with a post-it note that says "FIND THE BOOTS!".
