Airport Blues

“You can have the blues in bus stations and train stations, but Airport  Blues are an Upper Class lament unless you’re handcuffed to a Federal Marshal,” says Memphis Earlene.

Lost tickets.  Lost boarding pass.  Left behind laptop when I went through security.  Left behind carry-on luggage .  Took taxi instead of subway to airport in rush hour.  Went to wrong airport.  Take off delayed due to thunderstorm in Chicago.  Based on past experiences, a 10% chance of being the lucky passenger selected for random total inspection. Missed connection due to fog in San Francisco.  Overnight in airport hotels at own expense due to weather conditions.

Three weeks till take off.  If only I could take the train to Prague.

  1. Take-off delayed? Go to bar, meet new friends.
    Thunderstorm? Get shoes shined and/or manicure.
    Lose laptop? Find it.
    Total inspection? The pat-down feels rather nice.
    Traffic? Take subway (and be grateful you live in city that has one).
    Overnight in airport hotel? Research the life of salesmen for next story.
    Wrong airport? Can’t help you there 🙂

  2. Good advice from veteran traveler. Scarlett loves all the suggestions, especailly the manicure.

  3. Ellis Latourrette says:

    The network of railways in Plymouth, Devon, England, was developed by companies affiliated to two competing railways, the Great Western Railway and the London and South Western Railway. At their height two main lines and three branch lines served 28 stations in the Plymouth area, but today just six stations remain in use. The first uses of railway in the area were wooden rails used during the construction of docks facilities. ”
