Part 1: Relaxing
Part 2: I Promise Not To Call This Sleepless In Seattle
Aaaannnd we're back to traveler reality. Also, Airbus I hate you, and the good design you didn't fly in on.
You know what you did...
At least they passed the PDB tray this time, and it wasn't just water.
Half an hour later, we finally roll the runway. I've already been on the phone with AA preparing to miss my next connection. Unless we make up time in the air, and have the illusive empty gate at LAX, I'm likely not going to make the flight to SEA. Now, I'll admit that I have mixed feelings about this. I'll likely get a refund on that 'small' part of the itinerary, but I also may not get my qualifying miles for it, and since that's the entire point here.... On the other hand, I'll be in LA...and I could just go home early. So, I'll just let the chips fall where they may on this one.
In better news, as the flight goes on it seems like we're making up time, so if we get there with an open gate I may have the chance to make my onwards flight. Mealy tray 'half full,' right?
