Flights

Check out other Alphabe-Thursdays at Jenny's.  http://jennymatlock.blogspot.com/2014/06/alphabe-thursday-letter-f.html

We had a non-stop flight to Las Vegas which we usually take.  Omg, there was so much turbulence.  I even got a little air sick.  Luckily, when they handed out the drinks I asked the flight attendant if they had ginger ale.  I mentioned that I wasn't feeling well.  He gave me a can and after I finished it I was fine.  He did mention he could understand why I wasn't feeling well with the turbulence.

Our airport has cut down on their flights and the non stop flights coming back were at odd hours. I decided we would make one layover which was supposed to make our time getting back only an hour longer. Best laid plans and all, ha!

Our crew to fly the plane out of Vegas to Denver wasn't there when we boarded. It was late getting in from Houston.  We were supposed to leave Las Vegas time -3:30 p.m. but didn't leave until 5:30 p.m..  Consequently, we missed our flight to Cleveland because we were supposed to only have an hour layover.

We then left Denver time- 10:14 p.m. and were flown to Chicago time 1:33 a.m. arriving. huh?

We left Chicago time 6:10 a.m. arriving Cleveland time 8:24 a.m. ugh!!  We spent many hours in that Chicago airport.  Luckily, I was able to get a little sleep but I mean little ha!!

I knew I never wanted to fly a red-eye but now I guess I have experience. 

Our original time to come in was 12:30 a.m.  We ended up 8 hours late.  It's funny not ha ha funny but funny strange.  We never had any trouble with our flights.  Now the last two times we've flown home we've had issues.

Have the hardest time sleeping at an airport - too many sounds and people around!

I'm sorry to hear you had problems flying. Weather plays a BIG part in where and when planes can safely fly. The good news is you arrived home safely!

I hate flight delays. I know in the scheme of things, it isn't a big deal, but it can be soooo annoying...

I can relate to this. Turbulence is awful and downright scary. As far as flying anymore; it's just not fun. Used to be a time when I could pack a duffle bag, get to the airport 20 minutes before flight time, hop on board and off I'd go...with no problems. Not any more. It's such a hassle.

So, aggravating! Flying is a best a chore, but I'm glad you got home safely.

Flying is such a chore sometimes and turbulence is always crazy scary.

I'm glad you got where you were going safely.

Getting there is really NOT half the fun!
