We flew to the USA a few days ago. This is the first time I have got to the Internet to write my blog.
We flew on the airline's seating class that is a bit better than economy. The seats are wider (a big advangtage for about half the passengers who have used them on our previous trips). The legroom is a little better - but not sufficiently to allow the seat they fit to actually set up its legrest properly. Best of all, there is a wide armrest between each pair of seats which is just right for a toy cat to stand on.
Now, my human Andrew fits in to the ecomony seat. He is too short to make use of the foot rest (and even if he wasn't they are badly designed for normal height users)in the larger seat. Worst of all, he is visually impaired and the extra legroom puts the tv screen in the seat back beyond his vision unless he leans forwad uncomfortably. He spent this flight reading and re-reading a magazine. It was an added misfortune that in one of the articles, the contributor pointed out how comfortable the seats were in a rival airline's economy class.
Back at home, we have lots of plush toy Figaros and I am sure that if there is a new design on sale one will come home with us. I treat them all as family and respect them all. Some are bigger: some were more expensive. I am very glad the humans still treat me as "No 1".
