I am sitting in Business class seat 2C, on this Air Macau Airbus A321 aircraft bound for Bangkok. It is definitely old school, with 2 buttons (only the recline works) and a large pocket full of ‘things’.
In not sure why I am in Business class – it is an absolute surprise but I suspect it has something to do with the expensive *last minute* Economy Class airfare I purchased for work. When I did an online check-in earlier today, I was offered seats only in rows 1-3 in a 2×2 configuration. I then re-checked my ticket and saw the return leg was booking class ‘Z’ which I guess must mean ‘Business Class’. Lucky me!
As soon as I board I am offered a choice of non-alcoholic pre-take-off drinks. I choose water. This is followed by newspaper service as the rest of the passengers push and shove their way to their Economy seats (that’s usually me).
Dinner is served ‘my time’ and I choose to have it halfway through the flight. I have decided on fish with Spanish rice, salad, and an orange cake dessert. I enjoy this with a couple of slices of garlic bread and a glass of Portuguese red wine.
As there is still no personal AV screen on Air Macau even in Business class, I watch another episode of The Crown to help time fly by.
A second towel service signals we are soon to start our descent into Bangkok, and we land about 20 minutes behind scheduled arrival time.
Overall service is friendly and the food is OK. To be honest with an old-fashioned seat that hardly reclines the overall feel in the Business class cabin, coupled with no entertainment, it is really just like Business class on a domestic route.
