  1. Chris M.

    Thanks to this blog I was able to fly international first class for the first time! Below is the itinerary I took, so if anyone has any questions about the flights/hotels, feel free to ask.
    [LIST]
    [*]SFO to CDG on UA in J (Paid economy + GPU)
    [LIST]
    [*]Great service. Decent food. I don’t mind United. 2-1-2 is a strange layout. I had an aisle on both sides of me.
    [/LIST]
    [*]Eurostar from Paris to London
    [LIST]
    [*]Nerd in me was excited to take the Chunnel.
    [/LIST]
    [*]Andaz London (Hyatt CC certificate)
    [LIST]
    [*]Decent hotel. Nothing amazing. Location is why you stay here. On top of the tube.
    [/LIST]
    [*]LHR to BOM on BA in J (AA miles)
    [LIST]
    [*]I originally booked a seat in F. Plane got switched to a 2 class a month out. Two hours before it switched back to a 3 class. I didn’t get F and I lost my window seat in J. First world problems.
    [/LIST]
    [*]JW Marriott Mumbai Sahar
    [LIST]
    [*]New hotel right next to the airport. Great breakfast.
    [/LIST]
    [*]Four Seasons Mumbai
    [LIST]
    [*]Four Seasons service can’t be beat.
    [/LIST]
    [*]BOM to GOI on AI in Y
    [LIST]
    [*]My seat kept falling on the person behind me.
    [/LIST]
    [*]Grand Hyatt Goa (Point + Cash)
    [LIST]
    [*]Solid resort. Great massage. Service was lacking.
    [/LIST]
    [*]GOI to HYD on 6E in Y
    [LIST]
    [*]I was in row 2. The flight attendant told me the space under the seat in front of me was for row 1 and not me…
    [/LIST]
    [*]Trident Hyderabad
    [LIST]
    [*]Nice modern hotel with good service. Next to a KFC 🙂
    [/LIST]
    [*]Taj Faluknama Palace
    [LIST]
    [*]It’s a palace…
    [/LIST]
    [*]HYD to DEL on AI in F (UA miles)
    [LIST]
    [*]Only person in F. While it’s a domestic flight, it’s operated by a 777-300. Great service. I had a personal flight attendant. No alcohol…
    [/LIST]
    [*]DEL to FRA on LH in F (UA miles)
    [LIST]
    [*]A380. Lufthansa. First Class. Wow. [B]First flight that I didn’t want to end…[/B]
    [/LIST]
    [*]FRA to CDG on LH in J (UA miles)
    [LIST]
    [*]Inter-euro business class…whatever.
    [/LIST]
    [*]CDG to SFO on UA in Y (GPU didn’t clear)
    [LIST]
    [*]First long haul economy since 2012. Wasn’t bad. Had exit row and my seat mate was small. UA 767’s are 2-3-2, so the 2 wasn’t bad.
    [/LIST]
    [/LIST]

    Sounds like a great trip!

    I hope you called AA regarding the downgrade to J on the LHR-BOM leg. At minimum you should be credited the difference between F and J. Taxes might have been slightly lower for flying in J instead of F but I’m not entirely sure.

    Thanks, it was a lot of fun! First time in India.

    I called, and they refunded the difference. I got 10k points back and I think a few dollars in taxes + fees.
