I left Los Angeles as temperatures were reaching 104 degrees Fahrenheit. As I was driving to Los Angeles International Airport, I received an update that my flight was delayed 3 hours. At least it was the second leg of my trip from Seattle to Anchorage. But it did push my arrival time from 9 pm to midnight.
After boarding, I received a text from cousin Kurt (traveling with Brooke) saying that we would be arriving in Anchorage near the same time. We managed to meet up at a fine establishment at the Seattle airport to have a few beers.
Bonus, not only did I have a row to myself on the delayed flight from Seattle, I had the WHOLE row! There couldn’t have been 20 people on the whole plane.
Con was waiting for us and picked us all up (our fights were early).
