Gotta Love United Airlines….

Off to a rocky start this morning. United flight 624 (SFO > ORD) was canceled overnight, and we were rescheduled on flight 2052 which replaced it, departing one minute later.
However, even though it is a 757-200, it appears to be an international plane, with all the bed style first class seating. Therefore they lost a good 30-40 economy seats on an already full plane!!
I assume they rebooked on a first reserved basis, and since we booked in January to a nearly empty plane, we at least got seats.
But, we lost the Economy Plus seats we paid for, which they say will be refunded to the credit card. I had to rebook Economy Plus seats, only to find out they were $40 more costly! Will be talking to United Customer Service about that one!!!
At least we are booked, albeit on an overstuffed aircraft, and will arrive in Chicago in time for our flight to Syracuse to get home tonight…

Honolulu Bound

Left the hotel about 6:35am, dropped of rental car an boarded AirTrain to the terminal before 7:00am, baggage check and TSA Pre cleared before 7:20. Took us longer to make the walk all the way out to Gate 86 at the very end of Terminal 3, Concourse F.  Boarding starts at 8:25am, departure at 9:05am.

San Francisco Bay Peninsula Travel Map…

Well, we are back to the hotel now, only going out again for dinner a little later, probably to Chili’s in San Bruno, so I figured I would take a minute and post the travel map for the day…  Click on the link and you will get a map of where we traveled today.  The one short break in the route was when we traveled through the “new” tunnel that replaced the road across “Devil’s Slide”, opened back in 2013.
