Business Class and a lie flat bed in future!

Singapore > Auckland


Despite having seat 51D which has no seat in front of me so that I was able to stretch out my leg, I had a niggling feeling that something was not right with my right leg when I entered the plane.

It was a restless overnight flight back to New Zealand.

When I left the plane walking through customs my right leg was in even more discomfort. Doctor the next day who ruled out DVT, blood clot, knee or hip …

PS - I was laid up in bed in great pain and discomfort on pain medication for the next week. It took many more weeks slowly reducing my dependence on the pain medication with ever slight improvement each day before it came right. Even now I don’t know the cause. To make things worse, I still had another week of annual leave that I had “things to do” including swimming at my local beach.

I hate to think what would have happened if I did not have seat 51D or a bulkhead seat and had to endure the 10 hour flight with even more restricted leg room!

So perhaps it will be Business Class and a lie flat bed in future!
