We got to Dulles before the 9/11 riders rolled through. Got through security without incident, and had a meal while we waited for boarding. Our plane was a few minutes late arriving, so our flight was a few minutes late boarding.
Unfortunately, despite clear skies here, our route hasn't opened up and we have been sitting on the plane, at the gate, for a little over 90 minutes with no word of when we will take off.
We have had the option to get off the plane and hang around the terminal, but we have stayed so far. Seating arrangements are getting messed up. People who would have missed the connection showed up an hour after scheduled departure (we had 20 empty seats at the time). Now people got off and other people have claimed their seats. I have no idea how this will all shake out.
Flight time is almost 6 hours, so it will be well past my bedtime when we finally arrive.
It's brief because it's BlackBerry
