D-2 and D-1 Wed/Thur April 16/17

Thursday, April 17th, 2014

It was a very long day. Up at 6 AM Wed. Left for O’Hare at 7. 9AM fly to Detroit and 12:50 Flt from Detroit to Beijing Got to hotel around 4:15 PM so we were basically up for over 22 hrs. Hard to sleep on the plane Still,  we were lucky. The two of us and some guy filled our three seat row. The guy was asked if he wanted to go to a row that only had one passenger. He did, leaving us  with three seats for the two of us. Much more comfortable. Upgrade to Economy Comfort was well worth it. Our toilet is self flushing and the seat is heated
