Whoohooo – Terri Guthrie made it, half way around the world into the Southern Hemisphere. Surprisingly, she felt good after flying 18.5 hours to Sydney. Fortunately, she slept most of the way in Delta’s beautiful new A-350/900. The flat beds and little private rooms are fabulous. Definitely the way to travel! She was so excited to explore this amazing and unique place: a country; an island and a continent!
