After 26 hours of travel we arrived in Toyokawa, Japan at the home of my friend Hitomi. We had the great good fortune to be bumped up to Executive class for our flight from Vancouver to Osaka. In the waiting area at our departure gate, I noticed our boarding passes seemed to indicate we weren`t sitting together, Jim being in seat H and I in seat K. Jim enquired and the attendant told us yes we would be sitting together. Five minutes later she paged us, took our passes and gave us new ones that had an E before the seat numbers! The E came with lots of leg room , a menu and wine list for supper and a chair that had 4 moving parts and could articulate itself into a bed!! WOW!!
