Chicago O’Hare…more boring than it looks.
The routine, three hour flight from Austin to Chicago is over. I’m waiting at gate K16 at the Chicago O’Hare airport for my 7:15 PM flight to Delhi.
O’Hare is a madhouse and so were the American Airlines terminals in Austin. Bad weather earlier in Chicago canceled a few flights bound for Austin, which in turn caused delays at the other connections the planes were eventually supposed to meet back in Chicago.
All in all, I’m quite happy to be sitting here with no place to go for a bit. It’s kind of nice compared to the angry faces I’m seeing everywhere else I look.
Off to do some research on jet lag. Do I stay up all night on the way there so I can slip right in to the normal Delhi sleep pattern? I’m sure it’s not that easy.
You know it’s a long day at the airport when the fact that a plane is just boarding elicits cheers from the passengers.
