Sunday 27 - 8am
So far, so good. Our bags are checked through to Auckland so we don't have to hassle with them in Dallas or LA. We're about to board for Dallas.
Our 9am flight was delayed but we got here early so they put us on the 8:30 flight, which ended up leaving @ 9. I was worried about my ears hurting cause I'm all stopped up but I'm not feeing a thing - whew!
First glitch was in Dallas, but it turned out to be minor. Melissa couldn't chk in & get a boarding pass because her student visa hasn't come thru yet & her return flight is more than 3 months out, so we had to go to the ticket counter outside security. No trouble getting it there tho - luckily she got a regular visa last nite online. We did have to go back thru security. It was very lo-tech tho, compared to Austin & was very slow.
On our way to LA. Tiny plane (united express). 1st casualty of the trip: I left my Analog (sci-fi magazine) on the plane - hadn't even started reading it yet. Oh well.
3pm la time
We're here & at our gate- flight leaves @ 9p. Hooray!
