I booked Kathie's ticket to Paris (and back) finally. I've been looking for a good thing to spend my Aeroplan (Air Canada) points on. Interestingly enough, it was only an additional 15,000 points for Kathie to fly to Paris and back in business class versus coach. I'm sure she'll appreciate that.
Now, I expect I will not receive the same "class" of treatment as my gracious employer will be footing the cost of my ticket - something which I am very grateful for regardless of "class"!
Ah, Paris in the spring...!
