Well I have made it to Amterdam ok, its been a long 24 hours but i made it. Originally I was quouted a price of 1150.00$ for my plane ticket and called arounf ang hagled down the price to 863.00$, which was not to bad. When I got to the airport yesturday, i made a "NON BUDGET" call...I upgraded my seat to a first class seat. Now before you all burn me down, it only cost me 220$ which if I do it both ways will only cost me about 200$ more than the original quote. For the comfort of the big leather chair and the personal attention from the flight attendent, to the much need leg room, i think it was worth it. I got my bags quicker, i was right at the front of the plane, so if it did go down, i would have the honor of being one of the first passangers killed!!!! YEE HAAA!!!! ANyway, the flight was good, i tried to sleep but only ended up with a kinked neck, which is killing me right now. Back to the fligth Attendent, Anne was fantastic, great service and pure jokes, I will be writing in a letter to air transat to commend her great work.!!! Hey TP I passed the word onto some of the flight attended who are also budget trav'las about travelpunk.com.

The stop over in Munich ( i think thats spelled right), was not to bad, but someone felt sick and got off the plane....we had to wait for 1 1/2 hours while the found that persons bag in the belly of the plane. So that sucked!!!

Finally landed in Amsterdam about 1 1/2 hours ago and got the train into the city, it was about 6E or so. Don't forget to grab a free city guide when your in the airport. The train ride was only about 10-15 min or so.

It did not take me long at all to find the Bulldog hostel, and I will posting a complete review when i get the chance, first impressions at check in, not to shabby....please stay tuned!!!! B)

Glad to hear that you´re safe and sound, bro! Thanks for spreading the word to the flight attendant (Anne )!

Hey, I´m all for the upgrades! Leather, baby- That´s what I´m talking about! Hope the hostels treat you right and that you get some serious and much needed rest!

How bout some pictures of the infamous RedLight district for posting on this site (Becareful to not let the cops catch you taking photos of the district! I think that you´re not supposed to)?

Have a great time B) !

ok so what I gotta know is HOW THE HELL DID YOU GET THE SWEET UPGRADE!!!!!!
lol wow, I herd if you go on the plane and ask the attendant to upgrade you they often do it for free, or at least for a cheaper rate. Thats on plane
If anyone has any ways to get upgrades for cheap please share hat welathof knowladge. I once got put into business class and that was nice but it was sheer luck.
