Day one of our trip and so far all is well. It doesn't look like we have forgotten anything and our flights have been on time. As usual, Mark had snags at security. At the very start, he got randomly selected for the full search and body scan. Nice trip to Seattle, got through customs ok, luggage was where it should have been and no problems until security again. Once more, Mark had to tear off everything and get well patted down.
Next hurdle was to try to get better seats on our long flight to Paris. When I checked in online yesterday there was no record of the seat reservations we had made earlier. So we went to the Delta desk and inquired about getting seats together. We had a nice agent who said that tho the flight was full she thought she would be able to make some changes. And she did! We got seats closer to the front of the plane and side by side.......bonus is that the row of three seats has only us in it! So I moved over to the other aisle and we have a seat in between us,so lots of room for Mark, despite all his griping yesterday.
We were served snacks, then hot lunch/dinner, complimentary beer and wine, free movies etc. It is now 5:45 PM and we are flying over the very northern tip of Labrador. The in flight information says eight more flying hours, it is -72F and we have a 117 mph tail wind. We will probably get in way early. So think I will try for some shut eye, Mark is already there......
