Trip to Boston

Personal Blogs

I’m in Boston and will be here for another two weeks. Some of the highlights of my 19 hour journey from Bangalore to Boston

  • The Lufthansa plane was at 3AM due to which I spent only 10 min in the cab from my home to the airport which otherwise would normally take 40 minutes.
  • The check-in queue for the Lufthansa flight reminded me of the queue at BTS Bus stand !
  • The plane took off at 3 and landed on time; no wonder Lufthansa is known as an”efficient plane”
  • The economy class seats in the Lufthansa flight was very congested and it looked like they converted the normal 2 seater to a 3 seater !
  • On my flight from Frankfurt to Boston, I happened to sit next to guy whom I thought should have bought 2 tickets !!
  • I slept for most of the 19 hour journey; probably one of the reasons I am not experiencing the so called “jet lag”
  • Boston experienced the highest temperature on the day I landed. I was literally sweating in the hotel room. Today it rained the whole day and for the coming 2 days there is a snow fall prediction !
  • As soon as I landed, I plugged in my laptop and was amazed to see a 6Mbps connection at work. At my workplace it gets much better (10mbps) and my ever so slow site does open up very fast over here 🙂

    The economy class seats in planes are generally very small, with very little leg space (even for a person of my height ;)) And if you happen to be in the middle seat, you got to share both of your arm rests! The biggest difficulty is in having food in that confined space!!

    Good that I booked aisle seats on both the flights, but on one of the flights , the guy who sat next to me should definitely had bought 2 tickets 🙁
