Like millions of people around the world, I loved Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The minute the iconic opening song played, I got goosebumps and wanted to cry. I felt like I was transported back to childhood and felt the exact same excitement and awe when I watched Star Wars for the first time. Han Solo still has swagger and Princess Leia still rocks! I was happy that the movie was awesome. I went home, went to the Star Wars Facebook page and made a comment on how I wished they would re release the Star Wars trilogy in the movie theaters before the next installation.
Last April, my wish kind of came true when I flew Japan Airlines business class (JAL 65, Boeing 787-8) using American Airlines points from San Diego to Narita and the Star Wars Trilogy was on the movie list. Watching Star Wars in the air, while being served champagne, sake and Japanese meals is not how I envisioned watching the movies, but it was one of life's unexpected delights and the flight was exceptional.
