All our flights have been on time (so far) with smooth weather. The sixteen hour flight from Newark to Hong Kong was excellent and we were comfortable in Business Class (the only way to travel on such a long flight). The route was up north across the polar regions and then down across Russia and China. We left at 3:30 PM on the 23 of October and arrived on the 24th of October at 7PM. This report is being posted from the United Airlines Club where there is free WiFi. Our last leg of the flight is from Hong Kong to Saigon and we won't arrive until tomorrow morning around 1AM. We'll have a day to rest up and then begin the Classic Journeys tour on Friday morning.
