SunCEC2007: First travel preparations for CEC2007

At this time in seven days, i will be at the Sun Customer Engineering Conference 2007 in Las Vegas, and i´m starting to prepare things the travel for the event. Yesterday my FTL card arrived, so this may fasten up things a little bit at the checkin and the security. In an attempt of insanity, i´ve scheduled a customer meeting late at friday in Berlin. Thus i fly from Berlin instead of Hamburg. Is quite a trip this time: From Berlin to Frankfurt, from Frankfurt to Denver (hey, my first flight in a A340-600) and from there to Las Vegas. And on the backhaul from Vegas to San Francisco, from San Francisco to Frankfurt and then back to Berlin. I´ve spend almost all miles in my account to get a business class upgrade for the leg between SFO and FRA. But until now, they didn´t want my miles: No confirmation so far. I assume this will be a quite awful trip back as the last time: With 1,92cm any known economy seat in any known airline is just to small (things will be better in A380 as far as i know, but this doesn´t help next saturday). I hope, that i´m able to gather a exit row seat or it´s likely that my mood will be abyssimal when arriving … PS: I even finally found my passport last week but now my appartment looks like after a bomb explosion.
