Beef & Beetroot Meatballs
on KLM Royal Dutch Airlines – KL 855
-Amsterdam to Incheon-
Mission to Switzerland, Day 5 (see previously 6.310 Mana à la Manor).
In Chavannes-de-Bogis (suburb 20 kilometers north of Geneva). Arrived Sunday. Attended a meeting on diet and physical activity, Monday through yesterday. Going back to Korea tonight.
Meal 1: snack (Geneva International Airport Business Class Lounge)
Meal 2: lunch (KL 1932 / GVA > AMS)
On the road for the next two weeks, attending a pair of missions, back to back, Switzerland, then Fiji. Arranged the itinerary — MNL > ICN > GVA > ICN > NAD > ICN > MNL — to allow for three consecutive weekends at home, starting yesterday, though only for a day and a half per stop, the second one starting tomorrow. I’ll take my blessings however they may come.
Meal 3: snack (Amsterdam Airport Schiphol KLM Crown Lounge)
After the underwhelming experience on Lufthansa coming in, I was happily surprised to hear that our flight going out had been cancelled due to the airline strike and reassigned to KLM, which would offer me a first look at the carrier’s business class.
Meal 4: dinner (KL 855 / AMS > ICN)
Through both flights, as well as the business lounge, KLM provided one of the best extended business class experiences that I’ve enjoyed. The food itself was just okay, but the attention to detail and excellent service elevated everything to a higher level.
Meal 5: breakfast (KL 855 / AMS > ICN)
As always, I am grateful for and respectful of the opportunity to travel internationally, whether for fun or for work, especially via business class (see BEST IN FLIGHT), including airport lounge access (see in BEST IN LOUNGE).
