I Do Econonomy! SFO-LHR-ZRH UA B747, LX A320

Mon Jan 21, 2013 2:57 pm

Contrary to what many think, I fly a lot in economy; I just don't usually film the experience. However, many people have asked me to do an economy class trip report, so here it is. I could not get upgraded from SFO-LHR, so I was in the back of the bus. My final destination was ZRH. I flew United the first leg, then Swiss the 2nd leg. I also show some of the Christmas Markt. I hope you enjoy it!

The full report is on youtube, but airliners will not us post direct links to youtube. If you really want to see it, just search under my youtube name, which is the same as my airliners name, and you will see it's the latest video published.

For airliners, I will post the photos

I can't stand those chocolate brownies. Even Aer Lingus replaced the cheese cake with this awful sweet piece of sugar.
And that awful lettuce get's on my nerves. Glad I am not flying a US carrier on my present trip to europe.

Good report and video on YouTube, sfffyler123!

Glad you had a decent flight with United. Food doesn't look too bad, and how great you got to be on a 747!

Best,

Matthew
I love to fly!
