Sure, we’re not really traveling long-haul for leisure right now. But some people are. We had long time friend of the show Han on to talk about a couple recent trips.
Long-haul, premium cabin travel is often about the experience on board and in the lounges as much as (or more than) it is about just getting to the destination.
