I’m on an AA plane while writing this and today I’ve already had one delayed flight. It’s almost comical, the weird crap happening on our trip! (we did have a wonderful time visiting our children and grandchildren though, that is an important detail to remember)
To start out today, you need to know that at 5am, some idiot pulled the fire alarm at our hotel. There wasn’t a fire but then we were awake and when I did finally go to sleep, I dreamt of getting caught in a fire. Not fun!
To add a little more crazy, at 750 am, someone’s car alarm went off. So I just decided to get up, seriously what’s the point of laying there any longer??
Then when waiting for our flight later at Asheville airport, we find out it’s delayed 2 hours… an airport worker tells us to go back out in the main entrance to the ticket counter and AA will shuttle us by bus to the Charlotte airport (which is 2 hours away???)
Needless to say, we do what AA people tells us to do AND the girls at ticket counter were like “well you can take a bus to Charlotte if you want, but you’ll have to pay for that”…. uh what?
Yes you heard right.
So eventually we got tickets for a later connecting flight from Dallas to home and back we go through security (for the second time in two hours, I really love doing that BTW-sarcasm assumes)
So here we are again waiting for another flight, 2 hours later than our original flight. Our boarding passes did not have seats assigned so we frequently went up to the counter to ask for our seats. Not yet they said.
Finally the call for boarding and the whole room cheered! And we just got up and went in line. Got up to the front and “you have to go over there, he is assigning you seats”-Perfect. Another line for my seat that I’ve requested for two hours and then back in line to get on the plane.
I’m just not very cheery at this point, who knows why….
Eventually we made it to Dallas and after three hours I am on the 1045 flight to SLC- maybe getting home by 1am.
Here’s hoping that nothing else goes wrong.
Happy weekend friends! Air travel at its finest ✈️
