Well, we got on our way! Woke up at 2:45am and were at the airport at 4am. The airport experience at Sacramento was interesting. Peets Coffee was not opening on time due to a manager not showing up and, when they finally opened, was only taking credit card payments. Had an Irish Cream coffee on the first flight-yum!
Random thought: I wonder if there is some kind of specialized program to be trained to use the light wands to direct the planes? I think that would be a pretty nice job!
The plane got to Salt Lake City at 8:45am. Boarding for the next flight started at 9am. Two concourses over. So, we hurried over, making a very necessary pit stop on the way. Got to our gate with a minute to spare and then were told that the flight was running late. Oh, well.
Atlanta is hot and muggy. And I can say that even though we never left the airport because parts of the airport seemed to have little or no air conditioning. Not much to see in the areas we were waiting in. But, WHO EVER thought it might be a good idea to put a smoking lounge twenty feet from the gate waiting area and then leave the door open all the time? Doesn't that rather defeat the purpose of a smoking lounge to keep the smoke away from the rest of us?
The flight from Atlanta to Quito was nice. They did a very good job with my gluten free meal, although I think it was kind of an all-purpose (gluten-free, low salt, halal, kosher, whatever) meal with a gluten free packaged roll thrown in for good measure!😉
