UA 7206 - ORD-PWM  (1A - CRJ-700)

It's just shy of 10 AM here in Chicago, and I've decide to sign up for some wireless access since I have 3 hours to kill before my delayed flight to Portland.  Not a horrendously bad thing since I have nothing planned this evening, but frustrating nonetheless.  But being on the road a lot has taught me one thing, you take the good with the bad, eventually you will have a delayed or cancelled flight.  Burning an upgrade on the flight to PWM so at least I'll be a bit more comfortable once I get to the plane.  Will update status as necessary if things change again (hopefully not).

1:15 PM Update - Still waiting for a now 1:40 PM departure, but the inbound plane is not here yet.  Ahh, the joys of travel...

Late Update - See Portland Entry...

Used to live in Portland and can validate your "sooner or later" comment. Trying to return home early one week I tried to depart O'Hare Wednesday night, and wound up sleeping on the floor there (t-storms and conventions had booked all rooms). Spent all day Thursday standing by with no luck and thankfully got a hotel for the second night. Didn't get home until 7:30PM Friday night...and we had to get up at 5AM the net morning to fly to Hawaii for vacation!
