Peace and quiet is one of the most enjoyable parts of flying international long-haul flights in a premium cabin. Removed from most distractions of terra firma, there is enough space, time, and comfort to open the mind and think.
This photo of my son, Alex, was taken in 2017 as we were returning from a trip to Hong Kong and Shanghai. We had the good fortune of flying business class on the upper deck of a Delta 747-400. The upper deck cabin had only 14 seats arranged 1 x 1. It was like being on a private jet. In 2017, Delta retired the 747. That’s sad because the Delta 747 upper deck was the best business cabin in the sky.
