Twas the Flight Before Christmas, and All Through the Concourse Not a Creature Was Stirring ….

Well, not exactly . . .

There were creatures stirring this morning, but not as many as I thought would be. I had a very early 6:30am flight out of Orlando. The Delta Sky Club was virtually empty. The concourse was busy, but not as crazy-busy as a typical travel day.

The flight to Atlanta was surprisingly empty, both in First and in Coach. The Atlanta concourse was hopping, but again not as hectic as I thought it would be. I even had time to visit the Kiehl’s store in Terminal B for some gifts to self!

The children were nestled all snug in their beds

The next flight was into O’Hare, and we had a very full flight. It was amazing how quiet all the kids on the plane were. It must’ve been the timeless threat from parents on this all-important day about Santa not coming if they misbehave. Too bad this threat doesn’t work on every flight of the year!

When, what to my wondering eyes should appear, but a miniature sleigh, and eight tiny reindeer

Lots of flights cancelled out of O’Hare with many unhappy passengers standing in very long lines for Customer Service. I’m sure they’re hoping for a sleigh to swoop down to get them out of the line and get them to where they are going.

For me, I am very grateful that I had two on-time flights today and that I’m now with my family for the next week. So to all travelers, Godspeed in getting to your friends and family on this Christmas Eve, and
