Continental Business Class to Europe

Nov 25, 2010 | Europe, Trip Tips | 0 comments

The joys of travel! We arrive at the airport to find out that our flight to Houston is so delayed that we will miss our connection to Amsterdam.  We are re-routed to Newark and from there to Frankfurt and after a 3.5 hr wait, onward to Amsterdam. The only good part of the flight changes is that we had the chance to experience the new Business Class seats on the 777. The seat extends to 100 degrees flat so I actually had a chance to get some sleep. I am 5’6” and that is the tallest you can be to lie flat on your back and extend full length. If you are any taller you will need to curl up on your side and pull your knees in.

The food was excellent and plentiful. They started with warmed mixed nuts, then a trio of appetizers and a salad. We had our choice of 3 entrees of which we chose Cioppino with Sea Bass and Lobster. It was delicious. They followed this with an assortment of cheese and crackers, ice cream sundaes and cheesecake.  And of course your choice of alcoholic drinks, wines, and after dinner port. What a meal!

I highly recommend the new Business class seats on Continental 757 and 777 airplanes.
