Well, flights opened for our May 2020 Norway cruise/London break holiday.

Wife last year, when we flew first class to England: "Well, I hope you enjoyed that, because we're never doing that again...too expensive!"

Wife this year, looking at flights into London: "You know, for first class flights and the four-night hotel, this isn't *that* expensive..."

:lol:

Even odds she finds a way to book at least the transatlantic portion first class.

Well, I was close, but no cigar. She ended up booking the transatlantic portion as Premium Select, which is a new class Delta is rolling out, between Comfort Class (economy plus) and First Class.

We both had to give a little. She wanted first class, which was the same price as a new reasonably-priced car, and I was unwilling to agree to that. She said she'd be willing to go with the Premium Select (like it was some kind of sacrifice), but I'd have to fly through Atlanta (a place I swore I'd never fly through again).

Near as I can tell, Premium Select is all the service of First Class (same menu, real plates) without the seat that folds back into a bed.

We're also booked into the Tower Hotel in London, post-cruise, right on the Thames, right by Tower Bridge and The Tower Of London.

I am Pinterest-ing Norway things like madright now. One of the movies that I saw at the motorcycle film fest in January was two guys who rode the length of Norway, and it looked amazing. One of our consultants at work is there for three weeks right now - I might have to take him for lunch when he comes back.
