Default Semi-Live Trip Report

Hi All,

Our morning started off pretty early, got up at 5:15 as we had an 8:25 departure. Got to RDU with no issues. Had breakfast at LaFarm. Got to our gate and we noticed the time has changed to 9am. No big deal. The Delta attendant comes on the speaker to say that there is a part needed and is currently in the air. A little while later, the captain comes on the speaker to say that the wrong part arrived and we have been delayed until 1pm. About an hour later, they say that they have gotten the part needed and now will be leaving at 11:15.

We got in the air (without using the meal voucher as they changed the time again right after getting it) and was an uneventful flight, besides being pretty hungry. We rush to DME and it is packed! It took us 45 minutes to get on the bus.

We are hoping to talk to someone about either downgrading our 3 day ticket. The ticket was a 2 day ticket until about a week before the trip and I do not want to go to MK for less than 6 hours with the cost paid to upgrade. If they will not allow that, we will go today anyway and make the best of it. Definitely not how I envisioned the beginning of the trip. Hopefully it gets better.

Don't worry. I'll be more than happy to fix them! (or not...)

Think you're good so far, but you missed the opportunity to misspell "grammar".
