As I sit here in the Saint John Airport watching the "Delayed" sign pulsating a bright red, and "estimated departure time" changing regularly, I now have accepted the fact that my plan for a couple of hours of relaxation in the Maple Leaf Lounge will likely have to be deferred. In fact, with every change I anticipate the need for the "O.J. Dash" through the terminal to our next gate. I'm not stressed....yet.
A half hour ago I took a casual stroll up to the counter to talk to a childhood friend of mine who works for the airline
As I mentioned, as of right now, the only thing we're going to miss out on is the luxurious 2 hours in the Lounge. But having said that, my blood pressure, although not really high, will not return to optimum until my behind is comfortably seated in row 25 of my Toronto to London flight. Stay tuned...more to come!
Further delys have cut our cushion to 1 hour. What, me worry??
It's now 10pm Atlantic time...one hour into a one hour and 40 minute flight...plus we get that lovely little extra hour due to the time change in Toronto...Lookin' good...I hope...
Back on schedule at Pearson airport. Life is good again!! See you all in London!!
