It is ironic that the relaxing start to my vacation was en route back to the US. The journey to Los Angeles began in Cairo aboard Etihad, stopped in Abu Dhabi for a night, and resumed the next day on the same carrier but different plane.
When I originally made the booking, I was so concerned with finding first class availability from AUH-LAX that I didn’t check what type of plane would be from CAI-AUH. I figured it would be a 737 with oversized seats that reclined. Imagine my surprised when I boarded the plane and found the exact opposite. After all the bumps I had endured on this trip, I thought it was fitting that something finally went my way.
All of this for a flight that was only 3 hours long. I was sad to leave but happy I could do it all again the next day on a 777 for 16.5 hours.
