Deplane De Plane!

Dan Boston

The flight from Boston has arrived, and now they just need to service it, clean it, and then we can start boarding hopefully by 6:30.  I talked to the gate attendant, and they’ve been nice enough to get me a ground transportation voucher, and also gave me a $10 food voucher for dinner.  Hopefully we’ll leave on time (still scheduled for 7pm), and then I can be on my way!

More Delays, Lamest Excuse Ever

Dan Boston

So I got to the airport at 3:45pm, since that’s when my friend was able to drop me off.  The flight isn’t leaving until 6:15pm now.  I asked the baggage check-in attendant why there was a delay (knowing that it wasn’t on the Los Angeles side; the airplane had to arrive from Boston first, and it left Boston four hours late).  His pathetic response: “It’s just usual summer travel delays.”  Excuse me? What the hell is that supposed to even …

Delays, Delays

Dan Boston

After waking up this morning to discover that my Time-Warner Cable internet was completely hosed, I have been using my Sprint PDA to piggyback onto their network so I can at least get SOME connectivity.  Then I just got a voicemail from American Airlines telling me that my afternoon flight to Boston has been delayed…. by three hours.  Urgh.  So now I won’t even arrive into Logan Airport until nearly 3am, at which point I have to wait for my …

Cloudy at the Airport

Dan Seattle

Woke up early this morning for my return flight to Los Angeles.  After breakfast with Jason at 7:45am, we left the hotel for the airport.  It was gray and cloudy out – and there was some water on the car, indicating it had rained earlier.  This is the Seattle weather I had expected!  After dropping off the rental car, we checked into our respective flights and went through security in a snap.  I had about an hour before my flight …

Flight to Seattle

Dan Seattle

Virgin America has great customer service. The ‘Red’ In-Flight Entertainment System wasn’t working properly on my row, which was a bit of a drag. No power in the power outlet, and no sound coming out of the headphone jack.  The flight attendant was incredibly apologetic and offered us anything we wanted, free of charge.  That meant, free alcohol/meals/snacks/etc., which was really great of her, and I only took advantage of that for the fruit & cheese plate, which would work …

Off to Seattle

Dan Seattle

I’m traveling today to go up to Seattle for a scoring session, and will be gone for only two days. It was convenient that my parents were leaving an hour before my flight. So I took them to the airport, and now I’m waiting for a bit until the flight is called and we board the plane. I’m flying Virgin America, and have only heard stellar things about them. I look forward to checking it out, and will be sure …
