Day 1 Toronto to Barcelona
What we did:
• Waited around terminals
• Flew. All darned night.
What I learned:
• If you forget your PSP, your Nintendo DS, or your netbook, at home, you can buy one from one of JFK’s enormous vending machines
There were a bunch of these, standing about four feet tall, and ten feet wide. And if you put in your credit card (or, like, $200.00 in quarters,), a PSP doesn’t dispense four feet down and bash out of the swinging door. Rather, a series of mortorized rails glide your new doodad to you. That would have been neat to see that happen.
• Every shop at our terminal had a security guard
That’s why I didn’t take a picture of the enormous vending machines.
• If your airline oversells the flight, they will ask for volunteers to bail for another, later, cheaper flight.
It would have been worth it to us if the alternate flight didn’t leave in another 6 hours. And landed the same city we planned on. And if we didn’t have to contact our hotel and change our booking. So did we volunteer? No.
