Awww, thanks PF. We will be boarding a Princess ship in Rome and cruise back to England. It's a really wonderful itinerary.

The difference between economy and business class to Europe is enormous, typically in the thousands of dollars, Saphellae.
Oh I know! Just a normal economy from Montreal to Athens round trip is about $2000 -

However going on Air Canada's Executive First class is roughly $1000 dollars more round trip - it's a REALLY long flight as it stops usually in London or Germany. Some of them with the transfers are even 24 hrs - my eyes are boggling already !!!!!!!!!!!

The last time I flew over the ocean I was oh, 9 years old (early 90's) when we were posted back to Canada from Germany with the military. I remember a lounge!! But due to my size at 9 years old I'm unable to comment if it was spacious?? It was to me! lol.

Needless to say I haven't travelled as much as I did as a kid, since my Dad retired when I was about 15 - no more big plane trips other than cross country. I have developed certain paranoid tendencies since then shall we say?? WHich will make it interesting...

I understand that feeling. I remember sitting/standing in a seat in the airplane, I remember walking down the aisle, I remember the baggage carousel...and that's it from when I was little. My paranoia was so bad I cashed in a plane ticket for a bus ticket many years ago. I finally got on a plane with Shrek (didn't trust anyone else) when I was in my late 30's...pretty soon I was flying by myself.

Talk out your nerves here...and with the person you will be flying with.
