Question of the Day

Baggage Handlers at Work
Jackson, MS
January 11, 2022
I survived the travel day and made it to Hump Day. Not that I am trying to get through the week or anything, but I am clinging to some of the ways I used to identify days of the week. 

Question of the Day:

What do you do when you are a through passenger with over an hour stuck in the aircraft on the ground before continuing the trip?


I experienced this very situation yesterday. I did three things.

1. Watched the baggage handlers load luggage.

2. Wrote my blog.

3. Vowed never to let this happen again!

And then I really explored how this happened. Houston does not seem to be that strange a destination when traveling from West Palm Beach, yet the flights mostly pass through connecting cities and multiple stops. At least on Southwest. I did find one direct flight on another airline. According to Expedia, that is the only nonstop. I guess I may be flying that airline next time.

Travel can be frustrating. I also have to confess, wearing a mask for almost seven hours is not a lot of fun. I wonder how people on trans-Pacific flights survive. The bands of the mask really began to cut into my ears.
