Is my itinerary for the day. Which has already changed three times and a fourth would not shock me at this point.
Those of you who know airport abbreviations know I started this morning in Lake Charles. Flight out of there was delayed twice because our plane couldn’t get out of Dallas. Second delay made it impossible to make my connection home at DFW, so AA emailed me with two options at the same time I was calling our company travel department. That call got dropped after 30 seconds, so I opened the email. Options got me home at 10:42 or got me home at midnight. I took the 10:42 option. Thus I’m sitting here in Terminal B at LaGuardia typing this post.
Not as irritating as Wax and the other Hog fans who never made it to Vegas for the UConn game, I’m sure, but irritating nonetheless. If I’d stayed on the call with the travel office I would have tried to get home on United, the only other option from LCH to ILM. If my original flight had gone through I would have been home three hours ago.
always liked LaGuardia as compared to Dallas;Atlanta or Chicago…but quit traveling by plane several years ago…it was enough of a hassle going thru TSA when on official duty and carrying my service weapon(picking up extraditons;or going with other agencies on task force stuff)that in retirement just didnt want the headaches…so when we went to Connecticut every fall…just always drove
Yeah the last time I was at LGA everything was under construction. Terminal is still very cramped but the inside is quite nice. It’s only like a 4 minute walk from end to end, as I went from arrival gate to departure gate. Far cry from O’Hare where some of your walks feel more like military marches.
Flew to Auckland and then Australia in January. American was late on every flight. Auckland airport was flooded while we were there. People sleeping everywhere. Luckily we didn’t leave for 3 more days but got stuck in Dallas with the ice storm. Waited through 4 cancellations and rented a SUV and drove home.Was up 41 hours before finally getting home. I am not flying anywhere for quite a while.
