Is the extra legroom really worth $75?

And we’re off!

Well, as expected, 15 hours is a hell of a long time to spend in a cramped airline seat.
I’m not a giant, but I’m tall enough that paying the extra money to be able to choose a bulkhead seat was well worth it, even if you can’t lift the arm rests to spread out a little extra.

I’m also grateful for choose-your-own-movie-in-flight entertainment systems, my iPad and new noise canceling headphones all of which helped kill some time.

Unfortunately, Hong Kong is just airport surrounded by clouds for us today. It’s nice to be up and moving around but we’ll definitely have to come back some time to actually visit HK.

So, we’re off to a good start. Really looking forward to getting to Hanoi and starting to explore… Maybe after a nap.

  1. Hey Dave:
    Glad to see you’ve made it to HK without incident.
    I hope the Dragon to Hanoi is hassle-free, although it is likely to be more cramped.
