The trip started with a near disaster!
I checked in at 0400 with no coffee onboard. That is never a good idea. I left the pouch containing ALL of my flight tickets for the entire trip on the counter! Luckily, someone at the gate asked me how long the flight to Singapore (via Hong Kong) is. When I looked for my tickets........MAJOR Panic!!
They called the check-in counter and they found them. They gave the pouch to the slowest person in the airport. Mind you, the Raleigh airport is small and I was not that far from the counter, but would have to have gone through security again. The flight was boarding and I was still in a panic. Finally, the guy shows up with my pouch in-hand. THANK YOU up there!!
Now, I am in Chicago waiting 14 hours to board my flight to Hong Kong. The lounge is nice with all kinds of free food and drinks (including any adult beverage you could want. Unfortunately, the LAST thing I want at 0800!
The trip marches on........
