A quick greeting from Tokyo - we are a little over halfway to Singapore. We had a quick 13 1/2 hour flight from Detroit to Tokyo and we are awaiting our flight to Singapore - another 7 3/4 hours to go! As we have made this trip before - we knew what to expect - but this time we were lucky enough to fly First Class. We got lucky when we made the reservations and were able to use some hard earned miles to upgrade our seats. Jim and I decided this is the only way to go in the future....I was able to sleep for at least 5 hours and most of those were on my stomach - it was great! Jim did not sleep much - but did watch a few movies. One that we both watched was Banditas - kind of corny - but overall we thought it was pretty good and would recommend it if you get a chance to see it. Jim had made friends with the flight attendants real quickly and they kept him supplied with Bloody Mary's - Wine - Port and Diet 7-Up. Maybe that is why he didn't sleep - although you would think it would have knocked him out.
