I’m now in the business class lounge, which is lovely in all kinds of ways. It’s completely empty — I’m literally the only person in here right now. It’s air-conditioned. And there’s all kinds of food and booze. I think I may need a drink.
You’ll remember my stress about not being able to check-in online. Well, check-in was relatively painless — all she did was ask me where I was staying (and all I said was “a friend’s house”) — but my boarding card has the dreaded SSSS mark on it, which means I’m probably getting all my bags searched at the gate.
Security was somewhat stressful. I had a priority pass so no waiting to get in. But they make you put everything into a box to be x-rayed and they all have to go in separate boxes. One of my boxes was flagged for special scrutiny, which entailed quite a long wait. Turns out I’d left a roll of poo bags in my hoodie (they made me take that off to be x-rayed). The poo bags are scented and I guess that caused all kinds of red flags.
Anyhoo, the flight doesn’t leave for another two hours. I might have a snooze. Stressed about getting my bags checked again before I board.
Nice! Looking forward to your report! Have the best time!
I hate flying! One time they pulled me over and tested my breast milk that i had pumped for my son. That was nerve wrecking and embarrassing. I was so afraid they were going to make me throw it out and then ds would have nothing to drink (eat). I’ve also been pulled aside for sunblock. I forgot about the 4 oz restrictions.
Anyway have an amazing day. Hope you get some rest on the way over.
