So who here flies First Class or has ever flown it? What about Business Class? I don't care if it was just a free upgrade. I want to hear what you get in First Class that's so special. Why don't I know already? Well, it's because of that curtain that they shut light-tight. It's almost like they don't want the 'po folks in Economy to even glimpse at the magnificent, brilliant glow that comes from First Class. They shut that curtain faster than necessary, it seems. I've almost been tempted to check in late (say 40 minutes) before a long flight one day and hope that I get a free bump because Economy is all booked up. I'm going to Japan for 2 - 2.5 weeks in December for kicks, so I'll probably try that. I'd also run the risk of missing the flight entirely, though.
