Empty Plane

November 16, 2017

Had another one of those weird flights (London Heathrow to SFO) where the plane is almost empty. Love getting a row to myself, but it’s a little bit creepy, too.

My clients (Kristin Poulton and Jim Barnett, both of QAD, Inc.) patiently waiting at the customs counter at Birmingham Airport (BHX).

Our gear was left on the tarmac for an hour, then another 30 minutes waiting for an agent to appear. Traveling with gear means being an exporter/importer, with all the preparation and paperwork you can imagine that entails. I’ve done it about a dozen times; Kristin and Jim have both become experts.

 

ACTION ITEM: Do not travel overseas with gear without full documentation, usually in the form of an ATA Carnet.

Left outside baggage claim at Denver International Airport, about 11:24 pm (not by me, I can assure you). I. Can’t. Even.

Test Fail

October 23, 2017

Boarding my aircraft at London Heathrow, scanning my boarding pass to get through the gate to the aircraft. Took like 10 seconds to do this (if you don’t think that’s a long time, try counting out 10 seconds with a line of hostile Group 2’s behind you) before the scanner let me through. Seems it was waiting for me to confirm that I was okay sitting in an exit row. Took 10 seconds to figure out the boarding pass scanner but I’m good to MacGyver the door in the event of a sudden loss of cabin pressure and/or engines afire emergency with hundreds of lives at stake. Yeah. Sure. I’m good with that.

PHX Timelapse

The fam recently took a vacation to Flagstaff AZ (way more fun than it sounds), flew back home out of Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. As our plane arrived Andy captured this short (18 seconds) time lapse clip on his iPhone.

ACTION ITEM: Look at it. Look. At. It.

Fancy new urinal at SFO. Really messy. Can’t say I cared for it.
