Dumb Travel luck

Oops it happened to us again! Sigh.

What was that we hear you ask?

Not as spacious as SIA but good enough!

On our way up to Bangkok, we had been upgraded to premium economy which to be terribly honest wasn’t much except that it was in the front of the airplane.

We got upgraded again!! This time on our return flight from Bangkok to Singapore. And guess what? Cathay They offered us to take Thai airways as an alternative initially. Because they were well overbooked. You see, this flight originates from Hong Kong with this stopover in Bangkok to pick up passengers like us.

Elegant way to end the journey!

On this occasion however, we were upgraded – to business class! Yep you read that right. Business class with inflight service (meals etc). Could not get into the lounge though…heheh we tried. The alternative they offered would had been a 4pm flight. And we weren’t enamoured to sit around at the airport for 6 hours…so we persisted and the airline was kind enough to accommodate us.

It certainly was a great flight home and we were not the only ones. Seems they upgraded quite a few because the flight was full with tour groups coming in from China via Hong Kong.

Btw, we tested the free airport Wifi in Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi airport. You see, many had complained that you would be sent your login username and password to your registered email account. What most fail to realize is that when that page is shown, you just need to click “login” and start surfing. The email is for future use, so that you do not need to register again…duh.

  1. Lucky you! I’ve always wondered what it feels like to get upgraded… for free~! I don’t even care about the seats, just the food lol And yes, the first time I connected to Suvarnabhumi’s WiFi, I was like, WTF? And then I realized I just overreacted. It’s the same with Don Meaung Airport, too.
