November 2005: CMH-DFW-PSP-ORD-CMH

Mon Nov 28, 2005 11:54 am

** WILL UPLOAD TRIP REPORT PICTURES LATER **

Saturday November 26

KCMH Columbus, Ohio - KDFW Dallas/Ft. Worth, Texas

- very early RJ bird - 5:54 AM flight (first flight of the day out of CMH, I think)
- saw old friend of mine who is sky cab at CMH - did not recognize me first - we gave a hug to each other
- talked to former co-worker of mine at America West, she was thrilled to see me
- had cup of Starbucks coffee at CMH - did not sleep prior to flight
- flight was full, no one bought inflight food (Food for Purchase) except me - flight attendant did not collect $3.00 from me  wink 
- sun rose during very smooth flight, nice sight
- very low ceiling in DFW, did not see ground until about a minute before touchdown
- spotted America West "Ohio" 757 in DFW! I think that the Ohio plane had mechanical problem - it was there the whole time before my arrival and after my departure in DFW

KDFW - Dallas/Ft.Worth, Texas - KPSP - Palm Springs, California

- three hours layover in DFW, ate breakfast at Friday's
- took tour of DFW on Skyline train, very nice - full loop of airport is about 20 minutes on Skyline
- got new seat assignment - first row in coach (7D on Super 80)
- it was sprinkling (rain) outside
- flight 10 minutes delayed - crew not available
- three pretty flight attendants, nice and professional
- very bumpy flight, seat belt sign on until the very end
- plane landed real hard in PSP (bang!)
- saw Pan Am 727 in PSP - it was getting ready to depart PSP
- no problem with my checked-in baggage, AA did great job

Wednesday November 30

Hope you enjoyed my home airport! I really enjoy watching the AA Mad Dogs come in as AS hasn't been sending them in as often as they did just a few years ago (though they compensate from time to time with a 739  ). Also am glad the weather was nice for you, it's actually suppose to rain tomorrow!

Okay, my first reaction was to say I don't like your style of trip report. And to be honest, my second reaction was the same.

However, it's starting to grow on me a bit (I think the pictures helped). And you actually provided quite a few details. But maybe that's just the Smirnoff Ice talking.

Anyhoo, one wonders....does Palm Springs have its own Walk of Fame, or did Rock Hudson actually have some type of earth-shattering life event on that very spot? Or just a quickie with a budding actor?

BTW, hope your interview pans out for you!
