A Day Late Arriving In Alaska

Kara, Tyler, and Tom


Tyler and I drove to North Carolina to catch a flight to Atlanta, we were late getting to Atlanta, due to weather, so we missed our Atlanta flight. After standing in a very long line, we were rescheduled to fly out the next morning at 9:30 a.m.  At first we were going to get a room overnight, but anger and worry about getting back to the airport in time made us decide to stay in the airport.  I am very glad we did, we were told when rescheduling, there would be no other flights we could catch, I just couldn't believe that.  So, later that evening my son checked the flight board, there was a flight leaving for Seattle, (where we were now headed, instead of straight to Alaska) at 10:30 that night, it was just before 10:00.  I went to the gate to check if they possibly had any empty seats, what she told me was very confusing, we were booked on that flight. I don't know how or why but we were glad to get on it.  We arrived in Seattle just after 3:00 a.m.  Our scheduled flight to Alaska wasn't until 2:00 p.m.  We really didn't want to wait that long so when someone arrived at the gate around 5:00 a.m. we got our tickets changed to a 6:00 a.m. flight (after paying an extra $50.00 to change the ticket!)  Finally, we arrived in Alaska around 8:30 a.m. Wednesday morning, tired and hungry.  We were suppose to get there 6:30 p.m. Tuesday night.  Better late than never!  Tom and Kara picked us up at the airport and took us to a delicious and much needed breakfast!
