Last trip to the US in 2017. This time to the AWS re:invent conference in Las Vegas.
It is a long flight with three legs. Leaving at 9:50 today. Won’t be there till 20:27 local time. I.E. 04:27 my time.
It was a dark rainy morning.
Now waiting…. which I will be doing a lot today.
On time so far. Flight to Amsterdam was ok. Not much spare time, so I walked straight to Security and gate. Got the right lane at passport control so it didn’t take very long.
In my seat now preparing for takeoff at 1 pm.
40 more minutes till takeoff. Waiting….
nice. Messenger worked quite well during the flight. Not for pictures, though.
Landing in Detroit.
Spent 50 minutes for imigration, re-check luggage, Security and get to the new gate. Waiting to board the plane to Las Vegas.
In my seat. Gonna be another packed flight… Hopefully I will get some sleep.
For this flight lots of people volunteered to not take their luggage onboard in change for pre-seating. The same thing had no success in Amsterdam. It seemed that half of the passengers were pre-seating before sky priority. Oh well. I got my seat.
Was lucky. A kid with her mother had their seats beside me, so I had plenty of room. No food on this flight, as I didn’t want to pay, and was quite full already. The flight was ok.
Chicago in the afternoon.
