It happened because of a mistake and was my third attempt to fly back home. The flight staff first attempted to pin the blame on me after the kiosk machine failed to print my complete boarding pass (I was stopped in security). Luckily my fiance was there after I powered down.
The character next to me on the plane attempted to network and asked if I was part/owner of a business. How unfortunate for him that I was there on a fluke. And how silly I felt when I asked the attendant how much the in flight meal cost - - "it is free, darling." I enjoyed the extra leg room and munched on the warm nuts, sipping on a steady supply of soda and wine. All the while people around me discussed trips around the world and business meetings with important people.
It was surreal.
