    Flying to SFO is always a pain (coach or no coach). I prefer taking an AA flight to Chicago and then domestic to SFO/San Jose.

    The last time I flew Emirates air (in the eighties) it was a very luxurioius airlines–these people have plenty of oil $$ so they were not running the airlines for profit but for show it seemed to me back then. Probably that is changed now. The last time I was on it, they served champagne and good meals even in economy class which resembled more business class in other airlines….But perhaps that has changed now!

    Emirates is probably the best bet if you are flying Economy! BTW, the service is much better ( better quality wine) in the Duba-SFO leg than in the Mumbai-Dubai leg.

    why does a successful ‘for-the-poor-people person’ hate to fly second class and why is that similar to successful bankers?

    by the way – Atanu – on my blog I copied a part of your blog into the post: “Investment research concludes: First Debug the Child” disappeared already in the May Archive”. You might want to have a look: http://visualteach.blogspot.com

    Hi Jan:

    I don’t know who you are referring to as the “for-the-poor-people” in your comment. Do tell.

    About the “disappeared already in May” — what disappeared?

    Hi Pravesh:

    I have never thought about arriving in Chicago. The next time I will check it out. Thanks.

    I had heard a lot about Emirates and decided to check them out. The service was nothing to write home about. The inflight entertainment system in coach was good (although I don’t generally end up using those.)

    Hi Atanu,
    Are you going to make a stop at Pittsburgh during your road trip? I would love to meet up with you if you have time.

    Is Chicago on your list?
