A Kink In The Plans…

Remember me being all excited earlier about finally departing to London after all these years???…Wellllllllllllllllllllllllll, that’s not happening tonight…

…My reaction exactly…

See, what had happened was that my plane was supposed to get here from Chicago, and I was supposed to leave for D.C. @ around 8 p.m. and leave D.C. for Heathrow sometime around 10 p.m., arriving in London @ 10:15 a.m. there…However, it’s really stormy out here on the East Coast, so of course my flight to D.C. was delayed, making it impossible for me to catch my scheduled transfer flight to London in time, :-/…

And so, as of now, I now have to wait until 2:37 p.m. tomorrow for a flight to D.C., flying out from IAD at around 6, finally arriving @ Heathrow @ 6:25 Tuesday morning–almost a full day later than expected (#first world problems)…But if the weather’s still causing trouble tomorrow, I might not get there until who knows when…To be continued…

On a side note, this made me smile a little, :-)…

Who Says You Can’t Go Home (Apparently Iberian Airlines)???/Reflections…

At about 2 a.m. Sunday morning, I finally made it to back to the RDU (Raleigh-Durham International Airport), where I was received by my Mom, Dad, and little brother, and escorted back to Greensboro…But, let’s just say, it wasn’t easy to even get to that point…

At around 9:00 Saturday morning, the whole group arrived at Barajas (Madrid’s international airport) to start the long trek back to the States…While everyone else went to their respective stations immediately, I just sat down and chilled for a bit, because my flight was leaving at 13:50 (1:50)…Or so I thought

See, by the time 11:20 rolled around, I checked the Departures list to see where exactly I needed to go to ship off my luggage and which terminal/gate I needed to be in…But looking on the screen, I noticed that there wasn’t an Iberian Airlines flight at 13:50 for JFK…Something was not right here…

So I immediately went to the baggage counter thing to ask whether there was a flight at 1:50 for New York…She checked and answered my question, giving me 3 pieces of bad news: 1) Sólo hay un vuelo a las 12:20 (There’s only a flight at 12:20); 2) El embarque para este vuelo ya está cerrado (The boarding for this flight’s closed already); 3) No tienes billete (You don’t have a ticket)…Hence, you can imagine my reaction…
