...this is going to be a mighty fine flight.

In preparing for take-off, a mere 33.5 hours away, I decide to search the airline websites to make sure we will not be over the limit with our bags (given that we have two duffel bags filled with supplies for the kids!). Qatar Airways has, without a doubt, wooed me. I think I'm in love and I have only been on the site for two minutes. Here are just a few of the things I found:
-5-star dining, and I quote "you will be served a broad array of signature delicatessen such as foie gras, caviar, and smoked salmon" (I'm not even sure I understand what the first item is, and I'm somewhat afraid to find out; but count me in! As Neda and I always say - "if it's free, it's for me." I'm aware this statement counteracts the prestigious nature of the airline, but such is how I roll. I digress...)
-Complimentary fine wine and cuisine (don't mind if I do)
-"Fly Healthy, Fly Fit" - a guide from Deepak Chopra himself
...Yes, I know I will get along perfectly with this airline. This is already infinitely better than any North American airline I've been on.
Economy class looks prestig, in and of itself, so I decide to woo myself even more and check out business class, and dare venture into the lands of first class? Wow! I have never seen such a stunning room inside a metal cabin that is to be 35,000 feet in the air. You get your own area (cubical or cubby - if you will), and I'm pretty sure, judging by the photos, your own personal mini bar. And, I'm not talking about the mini bars you get in hotels that have mini-everythings for a not-so-miny-prices, I'm talking full on mini-BAR. Yes please!
I could get used to this!
