Happy Sunday, guys! I don’t normally post on the weekend but I wanted to pop in and apologize for my unexpected absence at the end of last week. I had the craziest travel experience heading up to Philly for a surprise visit to my grandparents, and am still trying to get caught up on life, and really need some sleep!
The quick version of the story: We took off around 9:45 p.m. Thursday and right when we were supposed to land, started circling around Philly for about an hour due to “low visibility.” After awhile we were diverted to Pittsburgh. Once we landed there, we deplaned and sent to another gate (at 1:30 in the morning) for a new plane and crew to turn us around to get to Philly since our pilots timed out. 45 min later we were informed the second round of pilots also timed out, and the third coming in dis as well. So finally at 2:45, we were informed that our flight was officially cancelled, which stranded us at the deserted airport from 1:30 to 5:30 a.m. until the new crew came in and could fly us back to Philly. Oh, and I had to work on Friday. Zero sleep (except an hour on the plane), what a nightmare!
Despite the travel craziness, it was a great weekend and the surprise for my grandparents went off without a hitch! I’m ready to sleep forever though!
And on that note, it’s finally time for my flight home. I’m already delayed a little over an hour, but let’s hope this experience is a better one. Ugh!
