Eventually we see planes.
Even better, we can gaze down on the TSA queue we’ve avoided.
Best of all, we arrive at the entrance to the Qantas First Lounge, open to us as OneWorld Emeralds.
It’s arguably the best airport lounge in North America, and we plan to dine here and then try to sleep soon after boarding our American Airlines flight to London.
It’s a tough job, but somebody has to do it.
Oh, and we give Taittinger (right) the edge over Mumm’s in a taste test, but they’re both lovely.
We shared a duck and watermelon salad.
We also shared Baja Bass and spicy stir fried pork mains.
The wine we chose was the Australian Ladies Who Shoot Their Lunch 2015 Strathbogie Ranges, Victoria Shiraz - what we’d call a Wow wine.
