They say you always remember your first international Business Class trip. I can recall the time I stepped foot into my first international Business Class cabin like it was yesterday. At boarding I turned left instead of right. The champagne and excitement was flowing. Not only because of the Business Class but it was the first international trip with the new bride. It wasn’t the cabin we were excited about. It was about charting our own course, together.

First Trip To Paris

After a night of celebrating with friends we packed our bags and headed to the airport for a two week journey around Europe. Our flight would maximize the routing rules with an open jaw and a stop over to our stops in Paris, Sardinia, Florence and Rome. An itinerary that on the surface was a first year anniversary to remember. And it was. It ended up being an amazing trip that went off without a hitch.

An upgrade to a suite at each stop along the way thanks to Starwood Platinum status meant we were showered with wine and champagne in each suite.

Lazy days strolling the streets and sipping wine on sidewalk cafes ensued. It was all tee’d up from this dream of flying Business Class for free on airline miles and staying for free with hotel points.

We skipped to the front of the line with a Paris Museum pass. This meant, we could go into any museum just to check out a painting or two. We took our time to take in the scenery. Claude Monet Paris

There are ways to remember trips with pictures, trinkets, and memories. With a Business Class trip, you’ll be sure to get all those as well as the usual trinket that comes in the form of an amenity kit. With this Delta flight, and many others since then, we’ve collection a large quantity of legacy Delta amenity kits. So we are giving away a chance to win one of these unused “vintage” Delta amenity kits or a new Tumi amenity kit.

Bottom Line

Our first international trip in Business Class to Paris was memorable. Not because we had the chance to fly in Delta’s old style cradle Business Elite seats. Not because the flight attendant gave us a bottle of red and a bottle of white when we left the plane. But special because we had a new experience together and made memories that will last longer than any amenity kit, ones that will last a lifetime.
