Marty, this blog post is for you. =)
I flew down to San Fran last night with Alan. It was my first (and last) experience in First Class. As soon as i sat down, i turned to Alan and asked, "do your feet touch the ground?"
There was anywhere from 6 inches of air under my heels and at least 10 inches under my toes. I sat with my feet on the seat the entire time. I never saw this one coming.
