Travel Tale

The flight to Hartford today involved three airplanes.

Plane #1 got off the ground, but a stuck rudder meant the plane could not achieve the necessary speed to reach flying altitude, so the pilot returned to Atlanta airport 15 minutes after taking off.

Plane #2 didn't even get that far: passengers were seated, and then the pilot came on saying that this plane had a mechanical problem as well.

Plane #3 could have left at 5:00 pm or 10:00 pm, depending on who you asked at which time, but we finally made it into the air at 1:15 pm.

Considering the flight was originally scheduled to depart at 7:25 AM, it made for an unusually long day.

Hopefully all the travel kinks are now out of the way for my next big trip...
