Today I promised to announce the winners of the B747 video contest.
But First-- A funny thing happened to me on the way home today.
I flew with a wonderful crew to Amsterdam. Slept 6 hours. Woke up around dinner time, played on my computer... back to bed at 11 for a 5 am wake up. When we all arrived at the airport for our 8 a.m. departure, there were three first officers. We had all been scheduled for the same trip. Further inspection I realized-- to my good fortune-- that I was the deadheading crew member.
My fingers flew on the computer and I listed for a deviate deadhead non-stop into Seattle. KLM allowed me to use their phone to call scheduling, and home. Then KLM put me on the General Declaration-- meaning, I was a crew member and could navigate customs via the crew line. This is an amazing feat in the land of "Is not possible."
3 hours later I was snuggled into my first class seat headed for Seattle. But not before I told a first class passenger I was sleeping with him.
At the gate he said, "Are you flying us to Seattle today?"
I said, "No, I'm just a passenger. So I guess I'll be sleeping with you to Seattle."
I'm not sure who laughed first, but I said, "That didn't sound right did it?"
He said, "I kind of liked it."
It's all about making your customers happy. ;)
An excellent gift on my last trip out of the Detroit base. I flew right on by on my way home.
