You can do a quick Lakewood DO or have the Lakewooders meet you in Philly.

I missed that, my apologies. Come to think of it I'm sure many folks here would be more than glad to meet the producers of the  entity known as Dan :D.

MXP-HKG.
Couldn't assign seats on CX.com, it only auto-assigned seats.

LY.com was able to assign seats, but not the ones I wanted.

Called up CX HKG phone number.  Cost me 30 minutes/60 cents but now they have their own private aisle thanks to 1A/2A.

I prefer 1D and 1K, so I don't have to get up to see my companion.

Hope we'll get some sort of TR.

You need to get up either way. Definitely would rather go for 1A/2A, that's unless you get 1/2D,1/2K all to your self ;)

At the same time. And call out so they know to lean also?

I'd rather the private mini cabin on the A side.
Can always eat the meals together anyway.

Not necessary, IME.

Just have to throw the tooth brush from the amenity bag right over into the opposite seat. Gets the job done just fine. No need for calling out.

Lol!

Then she will throw back the toothpaste, and then the plane will have to make an emergency landing to stabilize the situation :)

Didn't say they were elderly. I just implied they weren't 25 (which they're not).

Heck, even at 25, 12 different segments, over 25,000 miles, four destinations, in less than two weeks, would be tiring. Fun probably, but tiring.

But, hey, if they're up for it...


Who do you think taught Dan to love traveling? OK he added in the first class luxury part but we have always traveled. We have taken our kids all over the USA including Hawaii, Canada, Bahamas, Costa Rica , Puerto Rico... 

My husband  has a hard time sitting still and no one can keep up with his hiking.  Dan has called me many times saying Abba is crazy we can't hike up that mountain.  Killer Bees, Rattlesnakes, and  getting a H2 stuck in a remote area and being rescued by plane are only a few of the adventures we have been through. 

Last time we did Europe in a week staying mostly on overnight train cars. We once did the road to Hana in a convertible in 1 1/2 hours.  This was not our first choice of itins but by the time the wedding date was set this was the best that we could pull together. I will get home and sleep for days, but my husband will be at work the next morning.

Thanks for all your help, this is our first vacation as a couple in over a decade!

Enjoy. And we expect aTR quicker than your son delivers

Epic first post, summarily dismissing AJK's baseless concerns for your well-being :)

I truly hope you enjoy. Though I'd love to know how long it takes you to recover!

P.S. Overnight cars are often significantly more comfortable than even First Class cabins ;)
