American Airlines IFE A319 Bogota-Dallas

10 day live feed – “An American journey” – Day 8

Yesterday wasn’t really the best day I have ever had, although it started out quite good. The flying part was nice, but my short stay in Bogotá was not – which was mostly due to my bad hotel experience. Anyway, I could not avoid my overnight flight to Dallas, so four (!) hours before the flight I showed up in the lobby again. After a short drive we arrived at the airport, were I waited a couple of minutes for check-in to start.

Detroit after the snow

As you know, I have spent a couple of days in Detroit due to the snow storm there. When I woke up yesterday morning, the weather had changed dramatically to the better. See the sunrise from my hotel room was a good feeling, after days of grey and darkness. It was the ideal time for spotting with low temperatures and a crisp cold air, but I had no time for that! Our pick-up from the hotel was 30 minutes late, but we were glad he came at all. Once at Detroit Metro Airport, we made our way to the check-in desk of American Airlines to catch a flight to Dallas/Ft. … Continue reading
