The title reflects the glass-is-half-full philosophy.
After a 4:30 a.m. pickup at the hotel this morning we arrived at the door of the HNL RCC at 5:20 a.m., far earlier than we needed to.
Our HNL-SFO flight in F was quite pleasant, and we both snoozed for a bit.
UA's Easy Update let us know that our flight to SEA is delayed by about an hour and won't be departing until 6:40 p.m. That could make for a late drive home, but we'll see how we hold up.
In the meantime, it's a good day to be a member of the Red Carpet Club.
Update: Not surprisingly, a subsequent message informs us the flight will now depart at 6:55 p.m. These staggered messages are fairly common and, believe it or not, airlines have some reasons for them other than to annoy passengers who are hanging around a gate. Still, we're comfy here and are about to sample our first glass of "free" RCC house wine under the new policy.
Update: Oops, make that 7:05 p.m. now. it's always problematical when it's due to incoming aircraft.
