The last leg of our travels home was on an Airbus A319 from the East Coast of the United States back to Vancouver. Air Canada had, at one time, upgraded the aircraft from this route to a Boeing 787 with terrific executive pods in business class.

We had a few bumps on a long layover after getting off a wonderful international first class flight. This involved a few long queues and attempts to get our ticket changed to get home a little earlier without success. Despite this, we were comfortable put up in the Seattle United Club (Red Carpet Club) lounges at the time. This post is one chapter in our Around the World in Star Alliance First… Read More
