Finally...the day we have been waiting for. Josh picked us up to take us to Edmonton International. We had the fastest security and customs screening in history. They were even a bunch of comedians! (They got into the spiked eggnog a little too soon) Once through the check points the first departures board we came across showed delayed flights. Turns out that we are going to be behind about an hour and a bit. Could be a problem with a layover that supposed to be 2 hours.

Once we finally arrived in Chicago we needed to exit the secure area and transfer to the international terminal, check in with Swiss air, clear security again, find a sandwich, and get in line for boarding. With only moments to spare, we make it onto the plane. Thank goodness.

Onboard we found that this is one of the nicest planes we had ever been on. So clean, quiet, and spacious! Compared to Thomas Cook and TransAt this is 1st class flying. Jon’s seatmate was a very elderly Mr. Whitlock whom he helped thought the flight. We also had someone else behind us that we knew from Edmonton. Had a nice dinner, watched
