In the morning, I was working in my office for the invited talk in a conference held in Seoul from August 16 to 18
At 2:30 PM, I said good bye to Katya and Maya-san, leaving for Narita Airport.
I arrived at the airport at 5:30 PM. I was then working in the lounge.
When I was about to be on board, I handed my boarding pass to a man. The man scanned it on a machine, and a red light on the machine lit. Did I do something wrong?
“Thank you for flying Delta. You are upgraded to the Business Class”. This happened to me for the first time.
The seat next to me was vacant, so it was more relaxing.
It was nice to have a glass of Champaign before the departure. The meal and wine were decent, too.
Since I was a business class man, I got off the plane earlier to be able to take a bus at 10:30 PM instead of 11PM.
I took a seat close to that of a driver, so that he might be able to help me. There was an English announcement, so there was no problem getting off at the right station.
I checked in Intercontinental Hotel. At the front desk, “You are upgraded this time. Stay on the 27th floor with a river view. You can use our lounge. Use sauna, swimming pool, and the gym freely”.
Lucky man I am!
Although I have no time to swim, I will have complementary breakfasts.
The internet is free of charge. However, since I brought an old computer, it took me three hours to connect it to the internet.
