Hmmmmm....Friday it was a 7.5 hour flight for me. I spent the time watching Young Adult, sipping wine and reading my kindle. So I'm no help to you obviously.
Your flight sounds so leisurely based on your description! Sipping wine? I'm just trying to hold down lunch - this flight is so choppy, I'm on the verge of getting sea sick (air sick?) trying to read the words I'm typing. And no, stopping typing is not
an easy fix for that, the same way stopping typing when I'm home sick and my head is spinning simply won't do, either.
I have an old school Kindle that I would have liked to have brought, but of course I forgot to charge it.
I think you can purchase wine from any seat, but your description sounded so leisurely that I couldn't help but picture first/business class. I actually had the nerve to ask the company I work for if the fact that I'm flying for business means I can fly business class. For some reason they were thoroughly amused by that question. One day, before my time is up, I will
know what it's like to fly without counting down the minutes!
I miss having my wife beside me on an airplane - I could invade her arm and leg room with impunity. Now? Not so much. In fact, I conceded the left arm rest to the guy next to me. I figured I'd just give it up since I have an aisle seat and therefore at least have somewhere to put my right arm.
Just kidding about only missing my wife for that reason, by the way - I've already sent her several sweet little nothings from the air, if that redeems your opinion of me.

I'm flying into San Francisco and headed for Santa Clara. Good advice is welcomed, though the conference is all day from 9 to 6, so I'm afraid I won't have much of an opportunity to check out anything suggested, especially without a car.
At least I'll be able to login as Administrator from the hotel. There could be a fire in the moderator forum for all I know!
