Taca First Class Upgrade I got on the Taca plane, took my seat, I arranged an exit seat over the wing, whereby I got a little more legroom, so I already had a good seat. However, I have this funny habit of asking the airline Women if they are going to feed me.
I get on enough planes, I understand the procedure and I get bored, and I often talk with the Airline workers about many subjects. However, I have been on this kick where I ask them if they are serving Pizza. Today, I just said in colloquial English to this tall Latina girl, “You gonna feed us?”
She looked at me with a nervous smile and rush to the front of the plane, nothing new here, many women ignore me.
As best I can tell, the women went back and told the man who I think was the head Airline Attendant. Well, he came and stood by the seat saying, “So you are hungry Andy.” Before I can speak, he says, “Come with me.”
The plane is about ready to leave, it is taxi-ing toward the shooting range, I finally got up and scooted to the front, he waves me into a Front Class seat, he says, “You will get served first.”
What is the moral of the story? I truly believe talking and making life fun for workers can upgrade your life. I was having fun, doing my normal talk to everyone that is near me strategy on how to live life and it got me a first class upgrade.
I need to work this situation more on them 12 hour across the lake trips, this was only four hours.
I think I was the only “True American” on the plane, this was truly strange, I was told by a man in Antigua tourism is off by about 25 percent.
