San Francisco To Chicago.

Leaving San Francisco, California was an experience. It was the first time having a flight delay in the magnificent airport. The American Airlines plane sat on the tarmack for an hour. That was too much for me, and I thought of pailing on the trip, and I should have. Once in the air I knew I miss miss my connecting flight to Syracuse, New York. American Airlines promised me a another connection. The flight was mared with old flight attendance in their fifties, with looks of regrets of being a flight attendant. Not like the centerfold Virgin Airline flight attendants. I should not compare any airline with Virgin Atlantic. It would not be fair. Virgin is the ultimate in travel. Four and a half hours of travel, and already exhausted. I will make this story short. I was stranded in Chicago for two days with eight flight delays.
On the second day I met a girl who was also in the same situation. We combined forces to get to Syracuse. She called her father, while I made deals with American Airlines. We found two seat to Rochester, New York. From there her father would pick us up and take me to my hotel. So you can imagine this heartache of travel, and this doesnt mention my lost luggage, and me breaking into Syracuse airport luggage claims to retrieve my luggage. I literally broke in search my luggage, found it and left. I could of taken anything. Another James Bond move for good old Dave :) I'm more angry American Airlines didn't call me to tell me my luggage is missing. Rubbish
