Wowsers! It’s been over 2 months since my last posting! HP New Year everyone!
First off, if anyone had a fantastic Valentine’s Day this year, then I want to hook you up for next year. Simply book a flight on American Airlines, and I’m sure you’ll have a fun time like I did. This year, I chose La Guardia airport for my stay and I spent 5 fantastic hours there on Monday. Superb stuff. And as a special bonus I got to check in TWICE and get screened TWICE by security (mmmm – those friskin’s!). Ummmm – they love to scribble on my ticket and give me special attention. Maybe they just want to check out those special Xmas socks I was wearing. What’s also great is that they give you chance to take part in a sport – it’s sort of a running/boxing type of event. 10 mins before take off they declare my flight is cancelled. Then there’s a mad stampede to the counter. Even the old lady sitting next to me was out of her chair faster than a Lotus Elise! I was really slow off the mark. You can’t really blame me though, as it was the first time I’d been involved in such an event and they don’t really teach you this at school. Basically, there’s a huge fight as people push to the front and come up with imaginitve excuses as to why they need to get on the very next flight. By the time I got my chance to argue, all that was left was a plane leaving in 3 hours.
But don’t get disheartened. American Airlines are great because they have this great section where you can sit down and watch planes come in and take off and you can ask yourself why all these other airlines are flying, but AA are not. You’ll have bags of time to ask this question. And then the icing on the cake is when the plane you are waiting for comes in an extra hour late! Mmmm – is that a treat or what! Don’t forget to check out Stacey the kind newsagent lady too – she has a store full of magazines and chewy treats to keep you busy. But no hot food though. I had such an awesome time, I know who I’ll be flying with next time!
P.S. If you’re extra lucky – they’ll throw in a 2 hour wait on the tarmac on the return portion of the journey! WOOT WOOT!!
