There are a lot of uncomfortable things about flying. Being stuck on the aisle seat and having the annoying person on the window climbing over you four times to use the bathroom.
Falling asleep mid-flight and missing that all-important delivery of a tiny bottle of water and a bag of extra salty peanuts. Trying to make the free, scratchy blanket cover your toes AND reach up to your chin all at the same time (it’s…it’s impossible).
So, upon check-in, a wave of relief floods over any passenger who hears those magical words: ‘We’re upgrading you’.
They’re so magical, in fact, they really should be accompanied by the sweet sounds of harps and a PA announcement declaring a TRAVEL MIRACLE has occurred.
