I’m heading south and, frankly, I’m not quite sure about my return date. That’s a tale for a different post.
The airport is NUTS this morning, pre-0600. I wonder if Delta changes schedules so that flights leave at the same time. The check in line and TSA snakes around. However, a little voice in my head told me to leave a bit earlier than my originally projected schedule. For future reference!
Watching the tender care of the baggage handlers reminds me of the old commercial. Those of you of a certain age know the one I’m thinking about.
What I can see this time is a green light that flashes as bags pass. I assume this is the scanner. I just had a text message assuring me that my bag was loaded onto this flight. Reassuring. I’ve had the experience of a text that my bag was loaded but on the wrong flight.
I fired up my laptop in the MSP lounge and operated the station remotely. Very cool. Made a contact, too.
Technology is great… when it works.
The next part begins soon… I hope.
Well that didn’t work the way it was supposed to. No AC. So they kept us on the airplane – and its not at all warm and humid in an airplane on the tarmac in Jacksonville – for a looong time. They tried again. After a while the engines shut down again. This time they let us off the plane.
Food wagon nearby.
The guy had to remake my burger. Of course, this doubling the time – I’m sensing a theme.
Yesterday afternoon when I came for my early check-in the clearing process that should have taken 5 minutes, took more like 30. Hmmm.
Anyway the burger was really good.
All around people are seeking power outlets. I, however, thwart this aspect of Zuhlsdorf’s law with a powerbank. And since there were no napkins for the messy sandwich…
Always bring power and antibacterial wipes. Always. Extra-thick if possible and in large quantity.
We aren’t moving for a while because of some ceremony of other that some brass are lined up for.
After killing time we are told that it’ll be another couple hours. They think we are leaving today! Meanwhile, we’ve been asked not to use the sinks in the restrooms. They are backing up.
People are really looking for power now.
The catfish sando at the foodtruck could be good as a supper choice.
