Of course, this flight home (from Texas) is the perfect foil for the flight to Texas which also encountered similar delays also without the excuse of weather. That flight went from Salt Lake to Denver and then, supposedly, to Amarillo when the plane would continue on to Dallas. The plane left Salt Lake nearly an hour late and left Denver a half hour after that for some undisclosed reason. Within five minutes of descending to the Amarillo airport the fog rolled in and the plane went straight to Dallas. I'd like to point out that we wouldn't have had to worry about the fog had we not been delayed that hour plus.
|ONLY good thing about the flight to Texas.|
So there you go. Naturally, the trip there had to be matched by an equally cruddy trip back.
And I'm still waiting for the snow. You know, the excuse for this. Instead, I heard one of the employees mentioning not having enough crew and having to scramble to find them.
I'll be sending them a strongly (but politely) worded email.
Of course, this doesn't even begin to touch the travel saga of the Christmas of 2008. Those were dark times.
