Avianca SJU-MDE: No Business But Right Up Front

Avianca SJU MDE is part of the Birthday Bash Trip Report.

The flight from San Juan to Medellin is only 2:40. That’s closer to me than the worst city in the world, Miami (see The Worst Cities in the World) and closer than Bachuwa Law‘s HQ’s of NYC. The proximity and the cheap flight on Avianca (see No Business Class San Juan to Medellin) make it a great place for when I want to get away but don’t have the time for a full Residency (see TPOL in Madrid: Why A Second Residency? & Medellin: The Almost Perfect Sane Asylum Getaway).

While the flight is short, I still prefer to sit towards the front of the plane. There’s nothing worse than being stuck in the immigration line. Accordingly, I paid an extra $60 for the best seat in the house, right in the front of the plane. It does not come with any free drinks or food, but it is nice that the middle seat is blocked off, a leftover bonus from the bogus days of social distancing (Do Not Read: The Lost & Found Year(s): COVID Trip Report). This provided more legroom and space.a row of seats in an airplane a person sitting on an airplane

When I landed in Medellin, I was the second one off the plane with no wait in immigration. Next time, I will pay an extra $30 for the premium seats which are still near the front. I trust that my legs will allow me to overtake anyone as ambitious as I am to clear Customs.
