JFK...........the airport


This is an archived photo of JFK airport two years ago.  It was in August and as you can see there is no snow on the ground.  It didn't take a snow storm to keep us there for over five and a half hours.  Our layover was to be three and a half hours, but an Air France plane was stuck on a runway and we didn't go anywhere for an hour and a half wait. 

Then when we got onto the plane we had to wait for another half hour as the compressed air needed to get the jets going was depleted.  We had to get a boost of air compression in the planes tanks so the engines could get fired.  Fortunately we did make our next connection from our little vacation at JFK.

A couple of years ago on a flight home from Dallas, I sat on the tarmac for 3 hours, and I still don't really know why!

I should have mentioned that the wait was in Chicago. Dallas to Chicago to Philly to Rhode Island...a long day!

Your wait time memories bring back a lot of memories for me. I have sat and waited in many terminals for endless hours. I feel sorry for anyone who gets stranded in an airport. There is never a way to get comfortable. It is always a long boring wait.

I did wonder where all the snow had gone!
