i had a very nice flight from San Francisco to Hawaii. Welcome aboard champagne and guava juice, nice breakfast, a movie and a snack. I had a two hour layover in Homolulu. It seemed odd to be here and not leave the airport. No Roundtop Dr. No Laysan. Oh well next time. I sat in the outside in the gardens and enjoyed the warm (I think it’s snowing in Arlington). I made my way to the gate and immediately boarded. First class has its own jet bridge so we don’t accidentally fraternize with the other class (this is how snobs are made). I was greeted onboard with a nice quilt, slippers, another cocktail, a toothbrush and a travel kit (interesting combo). This is a 9 hour flight and I arrive in Auckland at 10:30 pm. I’ll try to let everyone know that I arrive.
