Post Travel Expo regret has hit one member hard this week. Our member spontaneously purchased an economy flight from Sydney to LA with friends and is now regretting the decision. The prospect of 14 hours in economy is enough to drive our member to drink! The current attitude is putting the “WHY” into Y-class.
Our members come far and wide equipped with reassurances. They advise our member that the A380 is a wide-bodied plane and accordingly, claustrophobia should be kept at bay. They recommend sleep aids, movies and a cheeky drink to calm the nerves and dull the senses. The Glass half-full rhetoric continues with our members advising that a positive attitude can do wonders for the mindset and resilience on a long-haul flight.
Our members also suggest a shift of focus. Best case scenario the plane might be half-empty or our member might secure an exit row. Worst case scenario is fourteen hours of discomfort, in exchange for weeks of adventure-seeking fun. So it really is a win-win situation!
