the wait

the wait

Over the years I have learned to make several quick judgments when it comes to travel. For example, if I am on a late afternoon or evening flight and I encounter a delay I calculate the odds of the flight cancelling or being delayed for a ridiculous number of hours. I will not spend the night in a dirty, filthy airport. And if the risk is that might happen, I pick up the phone, call the airline, book for the next morning and head off to a hotel. This delay was different. It was a Friday night and I had to travel again on Monday morning. I did not want my weekend home cut short because of travel. This time I was stubborn. Flight 1493 was taking me home, period. I glared at the flight monitor and as the information glared back at me, it was game on.

Two hours into the delay, Delta was calling me and asking if I wanted to book for Saturday, I said no. Next they offered to fly me to Atlanta or Minnesota then connect home, given the weather in both cities, again I declined. Three hours in to the delay, the gate agent said the part causing the mechanical issue had arrived and now they were waiting for the mechanic. Four hours into the delay, the mechanic was still in transit and the last Delta flight out of O’Hare had departed. I looked around the gate area and half the passengers where also gone. I figured they either took another flight or checked into a hotel. Not me. I am getting home. On flight 1493.

About this time, I looked up at the flight monitor and I swear the damn thing was chuckling. Could it be I am being trash talked by a computer screen? Sensing I may be hallucinating, or possibly going crazy, I pulled out my dandy point and shoot camera and took random shots around the terminal. I needed the distraction to avoid getting into a loud argument with the monitor. That may have freaked out the other passengers and the TSA would see to it that I never fly again. Just about this time the pilot gets on the loud speaker and tells his dwindling crowd of travelers that the plane and crew must be back in Detroit tonight. He assured us we will be leaving at some point in time. I looked at the monitor, pointed and gave it a little version of my touchdown dance. I won. You lost. Nanner, nanner, nanner. At 12:30 AM, flight 1493 was wheels up. I got bumped up to first class and had a nice class of wine and celebrated my victory over the monitor at gate 15.

November 19 2008 - Boring Hotel Picture From ORD

Hello from the Four Points Sheraton at O'Hare Airport. Unfortunately, I am limited in my photo opportunities today - I have no rental car, the hotel is up against a freeway on one side and not much on the other, and I don't know if we're going out tonight to a place that will be photo-friendly. We're definitely NOT going into Chicago proper, so there won't be any cool skyscraper shots, or shots of Michigan Ave or the lake. Ah well. We'll have to be satisfied with documentation of where I stayed tonight. Boring.

Oh, and it's cold here, but it feels kind of good - my first real taste of winter this year.
