Thoughts enroute to SFO- just in case you're saving hard earned miles/points for that much desired 1st class seat; don't bother - United's pretty much managed to mess up 1st class.
We're on a Boeing 777. The positive is ample leg room. The negatives are smaller seats; seats that didn't work; movies which can be viewed only on your own device (hopefully it can hold the charge for 4 hours) and only after the United app's loaded; very noisy - feels like the engines are affixed under your seat and of course the usual 'friendly skies' customer service.
Oh...you need to bring your own headphones or expect to share your music/movie with the rest of the plane.
Complaining aside, it is heavenly to be heading anywhere warm- away from the unexpected snow and record breaking below zero temps.
We're spending the night in Carmel - tomorrow we'll move to our VRBO rental in Monterey. Penelope will join us later in the week.
Driving a white jeep which drives like a truck - oh well.
Had a good lunch Village Corner - a favorite breakfast place going back to the '80's. Nice to sit out on the patio, watching the world go by. The miserable cold, black ice and snow of this morning is fading away.
