Geo: 25.729, -80.2375Cold in London; humid in Miami. Dull on plane.Left airport fairly early. Mob at TWA check-in. Easy once at desk. No fee to pay. Went upstairs to get breakfast. Paul notices the screen shows our flight leaving at 10.55h instead of 11.55h! We have a fast breakfast.But the screen is wrong. We board at 11.53h. First seats by the door. Not so bad, except we can't see the movie and the carts are parked a foot away, blocking all leg room. Compensation, though: free wine with dinner, coffee liqueur, etc. We watched movie, read magazines. No books left!Customs not difficult. Re-checked luggage immediately. Went to terminal to discover our flight to Miami was cancelled.TWA got us on to Pan-Am. Guy not terribly helpful about our luggage. Wait to Miami. Bought books. boarded plane. Dull ... read more
