My dad and I arrived at the Charlotte Douglas International Airport at 6:15am for my 7:09am flight on a UA Boeing 727-200. We dropped my bag off at the skycap and then parked the car and headed back to the terminal. I picked up a donut at Krispy Kreme and then we headed to the gate to get my ticket.

Charlotte (CLT) to Chicago/O'hare (ORD)
Flight# 1601
7:09AM
Boeing 727-200
Seat 18A
Gate A2

The flight began boarding at about 6:40. I sat down in my window seat and listened to Chnl. 9. The plane was about 1/2 full. We left the gate 1min. early and headed to runway 36L where we sat for 30min. because the ATC wouldn't allow us to go. We finally took off, The service was a drink. I got a coke. We landed on runway 27L. We parked at C4.

Flight# 729
8:45AM
Boeing 737-200
Seat 12E
Gate B11

After I got off the plane I headed straight to my gate. It was in the B concourse so I had to go through the underground walkway (do they ever change the music?). My gate was right next to the McDonalds but of course there wasnt anytime to stand in the line so I had to go board the plane. There were only middle seats left so that is where I sat. We sat at the gate while they let employees fill up the remaining seats. We took off and were served a drink and a snack bag. I got a Frapichino (a whole 5.5oz.). The cruise was smooth but the climb and decent were pretty bumpy but I enjoy turbulence so all was good. We landed on Runway 22R. The wind was gusting pretty bad so we took allmost the whole runway while the pilot tried to get the plane on the ground. We then taxied to gate E10 I believe. And that was the end to my spring break.
