Yesterday was Scott’s 3-month ‘birthday’ and today he will take his first flight ever. He will spend a few days in Beijing with my wife, visiting family and of course to celebrate his 100-day anniversary (bai ri, we will organize a party for that).
Just now I was looking at his ticket and noticed that he will travel first class on his first flight! Wow, I think I was in my late twenties before I took first class for the first time – and that was only because of a free upgrade. Not that he will notice much, but my wife assumed it was easier with a kid in first class than in a crowded economy class. They will be on a B747 with a new first class lay-out, so not the crappy ones you often see on Chinese airlines. Enjoy the flight Scott, I will miss you next week.
