Summer 2008 Day Sixty: Travel Drama II
I spent the day at work. Not where Rory spent it. Rory's original flight was set to leave for Orlando at 6:55. At 5:15 she called me. Her flight's been delayed until 8:30. Fine. Oh, and Jet Blue has cancelled every flight today up to this point. Even better. Calls me again at 5:35. The flight's been cancelled. She's getting on a cancellation line. Oh great. She gets on the line. She's on the line until 9:19 at which point they decide to put her on a plane that leaves the gate at 9:25. Unfortunately it was also in a separate terminal. Not a chance. Missed that flight. They immediately rebooked her onto another flight that was supposed to leave at 9:30 and instead was now scheduled to leave at 12 midnight. Then it was pushed to 12:15. Then 12:35. When I went to sleep at 10 it was scheduled to leave at 1:05am. I woke up at 12:40am and there was still no update. So I stayed awake until 1am. At 1 they updated the status to say the flight was boarding. Finally. I passed the hell out.
