I’m in D.C., or just outside of it, having successfully navigated through the holiday travel hordes. It wasn’t so bad, actually. One thing about traveling to Asia for work is, you periodically get upgraded to First Class just because. Granted, this didn’t happen on the long portion of the flight, but at least it DID happen.
Also, 5 or 6 hours to get across the country seems like nothing when you flew 20 just a few weeks before.
