So we get up at 3:45am for a 6:30am flight to NY. It reads on time at home at 5am and when we first arrive at the airport. But was delayed 2 hours. Then delayed on the runway due to birds(!) for another half hour and we drove all around the runways. We finally got airborne, but as we approached altitude, the pressurization and AC systems failed so everone was hot and had painful ears. We headed back to CHS, but had to wave off the landing as minimums vanished in the rain and fog, so we boogied through turbulence (flying low due to no pressurization) to RalighDurham. Where we were stuck as the second plane also had probs (regional GoJet for Delta). Till now. Just boarded. Same crew, different plane. Me, Im in the hot seat, 1C, looking right into the cockpit, as I was on the previous flight. Perhaps this good fortune caused a rift in the known universe.

I hope we get to NY in one piece!
