….has bitten once again. I am off and running!

No….. more like off and sitting! My destination was fogged in this morning so the whole airline system up the east coast has been affected. Firstly, the assigned departure gate was changed from the one at the end of one finger to the corresponding gate at the end of the other…so a walk from one end of the terminal to the other should have been a warning sign. Then there was the departure delay. For a flight of 55mins, we spent more time sitting on the tarmac before departure than we did in the air.
Naturally, with such a hold up, all the baggage handling services were affected and it was a much longer wait than usual to collect luggage.

Now I am here – to connect with a friend arriving from the opposite direction. Her flight has suffered the same hold ups and now I am sitting in the terminal waiting!
I decided on a coffee and something to eat – part way through the “something”, it started tasting a little strange. If I come down with food poisoning, I will be singularly unimpressed!

Let’s hope that the rest of the week shapes up a little better than the way it has begun.
