I had a lovely Sunday travelling. Man it is such a pleasure. :/
I was meant to fly from Boston to DC to San Diego.
Right off the bat this was not the case, as the flight from Boston to DC was delayed, and I wouldn’t be able to make my connecting flight.
I got onto a flight to Chicago, and was going to make a connection to L.A., and then get to San Diego.
Needless to say, the plan wasn’t perfect, as every single flight I was on was delayed. I spent more time sitting at an airport, and on a stationary plane… than I did in the air!
What really took the biscuit, was when the Customer Service people in L.A. managed to rebook us on a flight (since we missed that connection too) and somehow double booked us on two days. The boarding pass for my wife had the wrong day on it, although they DID let us get on the plane and take our seats (good security).
They then yanked us off before the flight left, and it was too late to get on another one.
Luckily there were rental cars, so I booked one of those… and waited patiently for the baggage people to work out where are bags are, and how they will get them to us. Eventually they agreed to mail them to the hotel, and I hope they come soon!
It was such a pleasure driving from L.A. to San Diego at 3a.m. which was crazy late for my body clock that was still on the east coast.
Oh well, as soon as my clothes come I can head out to Microsoft TechEd and see my first MS conference!
