I spent the whole of Saturday on a plane. It was very full. And it was delayed at Abu Dhabi. For what reason it was delayed, I have no idea. We all stood and waited (some impatiently) for some sort of explanation. One of the staff did whisper something to one of the passengers but no-one else heard it.
Whatever the problem, we ended up leaving a good hour and a half late. I just knew I wasn’t going to make my connection from Sydney to Brisbane. I was so right. Just as I reached the check-in person, the indicator board said ‘closed’ with a finality usually reserved for undertakers. Though that is tomorrow.
Having an entire day in the air is somewhat disconcerting when it comes to writing a blog post. There’s also the problem that nothing actually happened.
