Christmas eve... stuck in Stapleton for 6 hours during a blizzard.

Vomiting every 10 minutes because I had a stomach flu (which actually turned out to be hepatitis, but that's another CSB)

I was in Houston hobby when hurricane Rita was bearing down and there was a mass exedous from Houston.  I got to the airport at 7 am and it was already chaos.  The line to go through security was wrapped around and the officer doing crowd control was screaming at the passengers trying to maintain order as they were defying the line and crowding the security checkpoint in a mob.  I thought he always going to pull out his gun and put one in the ceiling to make a point.

After about 30 minutes of his meltdown, the line was controlled and made to be ordered.  It only took 2 hours for me to get through.  I couldn't imagine how much longer it took for the people that got there after me.

Though my flight was at 9 am, it was delayed.  In fact, every flight was delayed.   We were forced to,wait for hours.  Fortunately, the restaurants were stocked and there wasn't a panic.

I eventually boarded my 9 am flight at about 6 pm.

6 hour layover in Narita.  Customs area shut down. Everyone smoked.  1 bathroom for about 600 people. I was psychotic and hallucinating by the time I got to Singapore.

Getting into to Newark from Germany dead on my feet for the final transfer flight home, then finding out that the flight AAA booked me on never existed in the first place and I was on my own. I make my own arrangements directly with the airlines now, thank you. Never again AAA, and stop sending me junk and calling me to get me back. It ain't gonna happen.

Logan airport, September 11. Just got on our plane when everyone's cell phone/pager started ringing and the pilot came on to say the airport was being closed for a security issue and we could rebook our flight for the next day.
