To begin, not being pretentious, it has been awhile since I fly economy class in long haul flight. This flight was booked last minute, one of my points/miles friend has recently moved to London from Montreal for his second master degree. While I am not sure why he needs to master degree, he has invited me to go on a trip with him few times. I got a little bit time before continuing my round-the-world itinerary I purchased from British Airways. So I booked this flight at 14:00, hopped on a Viarail train at 16:10, and ‘relaxing’ in Montreal Airport’s national bank’s lounge. The flight and train ticket were booked by avios (13,000) and Viarail points (440). I also booked my returning flight from Manchester to Ottawa on Aeroplan with SAS’s business class ticket. I am very thrilled to try out their Vantage XL product.
