    Not particularly - I do absolutely LOVE the experience though.
    'Copperfield,' said Mr. Micawber, 'farewell! Every happiness and prosperity! If, in the progress of revolving years, I could persuade myself that my blighted destiny had been a warning to you, I should feel that I had not occupied another man's place in existence altogether in vain.

    Really good stuff Mr Casson!

    I just flew myself recently and I must say enjoyed it a lot. Even though it was on Economy (booooo!), the service and comfort was better than I expected. Perhaps because I flew via Singapore Airlines and because there was a mini tv behind every seat and the food we got (Indian food) was just delicious.

    1 more tip, get some sleep (which I didn't really over the 45 hours it took me to get from A to B over the last 2 days).

    I flew all over far-east Asia by Sri Lankan Airlines, which was a mized experience. For most part the service was top notch, but the entertainment part was a big letdown, with a lot of stuff unavailable. Bangkok to Singapore was on Swiss, which surprisingly was much better than Sri Lankan.

    Swiss used to be the premier airline.......

    I had a faulty screen which didn't work on my flight with them from Zurich to Hong Kong.

    Haha, what are the chances! Ditto with me. But since the flight wasn't full, they gave me another seat with a screen that did function.
