- Hot lemon-scented towels. Thank you, Lufthansa.
- Airline wine that isn’t $6 – it’s free. More than once, if you like.
- Tiny triangles of Camembert.
- Chicken that actually resembles chicken, and that sausages and kraut wasn’t the only option.
- A really good book to read on the planes, with exactly enough pages remaining to kill the hour of the final leg home. Also, managing not to cry out loud while finishing it, as it was quite a tear-jerker. In a good way.
