Time to Waste at Logan

Dan Boston

After getting all packed up and cleaning up the apartment a bit, my grandmother picked me up and brought me to her place. We were going to hang out for a little bit before the taxi took me to the airport, but it was already waiting for us when we got back to her place.  So I just moved all my stuff into the taxi, and off I went to the Logan International Airport! I got there around 5:25pm, and …

Heading to LAX

Dan Boston

I woke up way too early (or so it feels), and was picked up by SuperShuttle to take me to LAX for my flight to Boston. I’m now relaxing at the gate, about two hours before my flight.  The good news? I’m flying Virgin America!  So that means I will (supposedly) have an outlet at my seat, to allow me to watch the many hours of televison that I have on my laptop to entertain me. Failing that, I have …

Bus to Logan / Admiral's Club

Dan Boston

My older sister took me to the bus station, since my niece didn’t want to join us.  She decided that she would rather watch The Little Mermaid: Ariel’s Beginning than go with me to the station.  Sheesh!  The bus ride itself was rather uneventful, but I was crammed and didn’t have much leg room.   I got to Logan with about 3 hours before my flight.  I decided, given the shenanigans endured last week, that I would spring for the Day …

"Come on Big D…. fly!"

Dan Boston

The flight from Dallas is almost done deplaning.  It’s now 10:30pm.  They just announced that my flight (which was scheduled to leave at 3:30pm, in case you forgot!) is now only half-full.  YAY!  Maybe I can get a row to myself!  We’re still on track to leave around 11pm, getting into Boston a little before 8am.  Not sure why the flight is suddenly six hours long instead of the five hours it was when we were first on board at …

New Airplane

Dan Boston

Well, the plane has been taken out of service.  What does that mean? No idea, but it was a technical issue that they didn’t feel safe flying with, so that’s better safe than sorry.  They didn’t cancel the flight – we’re supposed to get a new plane, but it has to arrive from Dallas – at 10pm.  So we’ll now be leaving at.. 11pm.  At least, that’s what they say for now….. stay tuned!

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 …
