I never get tired of this view.

Midnight at SFO

SFO is basically closed, except for those of us that missed connections. The 7 United employees left are still here working out details for us for later this morning. I was going to say tomorrow, but it really is later this morning.

Back to MSY

So I am back to MSY this week to work with bankers, should be interesting as this upcoming weekend is Jazz Fest.

Highlight of the trip thus far - I met Ryan Hall! Amazing marathon runner - 2:04:98! He has been to the Olympics and is going back this year - good luck Ryan!

The dumb question of the day (that I asked him) - do you pass bikes on your training runs? After all, the guy runs 13 mph. He of course said no, but laughed. I think he does.

Anyway, did score a couple of upgrades today in route to MSY. See you next time up in the air.

Since United decided to take on Continental's system, I have had many delays/cancellations. Today I am supposed to make an easy one-connection flight to DEN, but SFO is not cooperating again, and once again there is NO BLOOD on the blood flight! So we are delayed.

I think I mentioned this on a previous post, the 9:45am flight out of RDD normally carries Blood, so it gets a waiver into SFO normally and is on-time. Not today. So far I am 2 hours delayed, we will have to see how this turns out when I get into SFO.

Welcome back

It has been a while since my last post. Last week I was in DSM, and had to be rerouted since SFO had some problems. I ended up driving to SMF and made it into DSM in time for my next morning meeting.

Flying out of DSM, we went over the storm system that later hit the Midwest with over 120 tornadoes.
