This is the place you normally can't get into. It's amazing what Business Class will do!
Not Too Shabby
I'm sitting here in the Northwest airlines lounge at the airport, and it's nice to know how the other half lives! Part of the deal is that you get to fly Business Class and one of the perks in the use of the airport lounge. (Note to PDI'ers: Not to worry, the client pays for the airfare -- your gasoline dollars at work.)
There are comfortable chairs and tables, free liquor, chips and salsa, cheese and crackers, but I'm a sucker for the chocolate chip cookies. There appear to be around six employees doing stocking food and drinks, cleaning up, and people at terminals waiting to answer questions. It's like another world.
In about an hour and a half, I head to Amsterdam, which is 8 hours and 19 minutes away (give or take a few minutes).
On the not so nice side, it was hard to say goodbye to Linda for 3 1/2 weeks.
