Well we took the plunge!! We purchased R/T FIRST Class tickets to Aruba for next October!! We have never been on first calss & are very excited!!
The trip last year was exhausting - with a red eye flight out of SFO - long lay over at JFK - then a 5 hour flight to Aruba - where we landed around 1 pm. We ended up falling in bed & woke up in time to grab a sandwhich & go back to bed. We felt we lost an entire day.
The tickets were relatively inexpensive ~ $ 2,000.00 for both of us. Only a couple of hundred dollars more then coach - well worth it!!
Funny - last year when we went - DH had food posening & I called the airlines the day before we were to leave - to see if I could get him in first class - just to stretch out & relax - they told me the first class tickets were $ 6,000.00 FOR 1!! He suffered in coach with me that trip. That's why we were so surprised that the price was so low this time around!!
Now. . . .on to plan the rest of trip!!
