  • The journey is more important than the destination

    They’re digging up the runway at SFO. Apparently all the airlines with flights scheduled into San Francisco were warned about this months ago, but maybe they thought it was a bluff and they didn’t change their schedules. Or maybe SFO lied about telling everyone. Whatever the story, Delta in Seattle were talking about how there […]

  • Still delayed

    The flight from Salt Lake City left on time, which was the only one that did today. We flew to Detroit and landed half an hour ahead of schedule, so rather than the sprint through the airport I’d feared, I just walked twenty yards from one gate to another. And then the flight to Toronto […]

The flight out of Singapore was, as always, a little painful: a 6:50 departure time meant I stayed up all night and was struggling to stay awake aa I went through security. But this time round I’m travelling […]

  • You get what you pay for

    Today was our first flight as a family on Delta. This was always going to be harder than a flight with a carrier that didn’t leave at stupid o’clock in the morning, but there’s some key differences to flying with Air Canada and British Airways. To do with how you stow infants.
