Only have internet for a moment so I want to post this up – fair warning, this might be a little raw (haven’t had time to edit as I’m busy traveling).
My flight Monday morning wasn’t delayed – it was all-out canceled
This week, I’m flying to New York and then Chicago for a client. Monday I woke up extra early and made my way to the airport two hours prior to my flight, as I knew that there had been reports of chaos for travelers this summer.
Checked my bags, (in hindsight a big mistake, don’t do this if you can help it) made it through security and then sat down for a breakfast and coffee.
Went to my gate after breakfast and had a seat adjacent to the boarding area where I started writing an article for this site (you’ll see that one eventually). Anyway, all of a sudden, the board lit up saying my flight to LaGuardia been delayed.
Fine, I can deal with delayed, I understand that prepping an aircraft and getting things organized for flight is something that takes time. Or, perhaps my plane simply wasn’t in yet and delayed at its previous destination. I get it; being exactly on time isn’t something that they can guarantee 100% to be on time, we’re human.
