Time to Fly
We board our plane in Los Angeles to Detroit and sit there waiting to take off. A short while later we are told this plane is not going to fly today! WTF? So we are told to take our belongings and leave the plane. So it’s back into the terminal. The airlines are telling us that they will bring us an identical plane within 3 hours. 3 hours??? Oh my, this doesn’t sound good at all!
But it turns out it is less than an hour and we are boarding another plane and it’s only 2 Gates away. Crisis is not as bad as we’re being told. Still, stress levels are higher than we like. But this is the world of travel. Relax, we had found a bar and a cold drink in between. Oh, the world of alcohol infused libations! And while we were at it, I found a pair of lovers to photograph! Those who know me know I always do this when I travel!
Okay, in the meantime, Elee has the foresight to talk with airport personnel and get them to upgrade our seats to some empty seats we saw on our first plane. A passenger on the next plane questions me as to why I am getting into the empty seat as we were told to take the same seats as the first plane and I get settled in and explain it to him and all is good.
Since we had a long layover in Detroit to start with, we make it with time to spare and we arrive in Savannah in plenty of time to get to our hotel and all is good to start our vacation and we are off and running!
