Now for a couple of flights, one shortish and one longish.
Not much going on at this airport today. Parking and check in and security were a breeze.
It is a fairly quick trip to see friends.
It’ll be hot, but it’s a dry heat.
And so it begins with the Delta shuffle. I was already upgraded to a seat I chose but they moved me to a different seat in the same class but the 1st row – which in general I don’t like. Strange. Perhaps it was an equipment change. The tail number ended in an EV which I don’t recall seeing before.
It’s a CRJ200 equipped with the deluxe Vicegrip Squeeze Seat™ option for the 1st row, as antipicated. And because it is the “Comfort” section – yes it really says that – in our row we have a conforting immovable bulk head in front of us which prevents any comfortable stretching out of legs.
Variation in announcements – this flight is operated by SkyWest it seems: We’ve been instructed that we cannot consume our own alcohol. I guess I’ll have to consume my neighbor’s alcohol instead. Sheesh! This might get a little sporty. I hope he brought the good stuff this time.
UPGRADE… er um… UPDATE:
While MSN was like a desert, MSP was crazy busy. It reminded me of LGA on a bad day. Tables and dining areas crowd the gate at the end of G.
Before getting back to me Kindle … or nap.
Oh… there’s this.
I discovered a new app feature. You can track your bag and see it on a “map”.
They are closing the door and there is NO UPDATE on the location of the bag. Thanks Delta, again, for failing to perform. Now I get to wonder.
Delta screwed up my bag. They didn’t load it. It’s going to ATLANTA. I’m not going to Atlanta.
I’ve arrive at my destination, but my bag did not. I’ve been dealing with Delta ever since. I believe it is on the way to where I am, but they have not been especially interested in “making me whole”, as it were.
BTW… here was my tray table.
If it looks as it it might have been sticky… I assure you that it was.
