The Planes From Hell

So this weekend I went away with one of my good friend's to Orlando for her mom's 50th birthday celebration. The party was really nice and I enjoyed myself, but getting there was the worse...

Our plane was schedule to leave on Friday at 7:30pm. Now the weather started acting a mess rain, thunder, lightning so we expected delays. So my moms checks Jet Blue's schedule and they said the flight was pushed back to 8:30pm, ok cool. So we get to the airport at 7:oopm

Now this is when the bullshit starts...

The flight gets pushed back to 9:30pm, ok we're still in chill mode. Then it gets pushed back to 10:15pm, ok fine. Me and my girl got happy juice (yup in the airport straight drunks..lol) so that holds us up for a minute. They change our gate so we make a move there. Everyone is a big annoyed now. Flight pushes back to 11p then 11:30pm then to 12a.  Mind you the person at the desk isn't telling us shit, just sitting there looking dumb. The only way you knew anything is if you personally went up there and asked him. 

THen the flight gets pushed back to 5am, 5am I repeat. WTF!!!!! They hand out blankets and juice and bullshit ass crackers. I don't know what I would've done if I was alone I was annoyed and wanted to sleep. I have never been in the airport so long. We still keeping our composure then these numnuts tell us the flight is cancelled. Cancelled hold up, I know that is not what I am reading. I have been in the airport damn near 10 hours and they tell us the shit is cancelled, where's my gun?

So we get on line to get our money back while we wait some Jet Blue workers come and say "What flight are you cancelling?" I reply "Flight 43". The man says "Oh we have rebooked it for 6am, get your boarding pass". YIPPEEEE.!!!! We dont get to miss DKH's moms birthday. ONCE WE BOARD WE'VE BEEN IN THE AIRPORT FOR 12 HOURS. 

RETURN FLIGHT...

We took delta back and for the most part we were doing well. We got to JFK early about 30 minutes early, however we couldn't land. So we were in a holding area in the sky...lol. When the captain made that announcement I thought it was so funny. So we circling the sky for a good 30 minutes...arghhhh. Then we land only to not have a gate to park in. HOW EFFING NICE....not. So now we take a tour via airplane of JFK airport. Never did that before. We end up at some deserted runway which looked suspect ass hell and ended up staying there for another 30 minutes.

Then we get a gate but the plane is too damn big and the captain can't manually park himself. So we have to get towed into the gate which takes another 20 minutes. Finally we get off the airplane and ppl are taking forever to get off. LIke damn didn't you know at some point u had to have your shit packed why wait until 50 ppl are standing behind you.. Arghh some ppl are so annoying.

I'm home now, I never thought that was going to happen but I'm here. God Bless!!
