Having deposited my luggage at the DL service desk for connecting flights and to be given a "temporary" ticket; then hearing that I have to present myself to the desk at the departure gate so that they can allocate me a seat because this ticket isn't in itself a boarding pass, I head towards terminal 2 to wait for my flight which will take me to Boston.
After a Wendy's and a short nap it is time to go to the service desk to collect my boarding pass and board the plane. But I'm told to wait to one side and that I will be able to board once my name has been called. But why is this then? Well, if I'm right, a little bit of overbooking... So I stay to one side, waiting to be called, there's about thirty of us without a seat, some volunteers come forward to offer their places.
Gradually as time goes by, I start telling myself I'll never get on this flight. There are only two places left and bingo - I take the second to last place and slip on to the plane. It's almost 8.30pm, or rather 2.30am with the time difference - a little tired shall we say! Up since 7am to get to Malpensa.
We alight at around 8.50pm on a 30 minute flight which was announced to be 1hr43 long. I think that's a bit out of order. When I was looking on FlightAware a few days before the flight, I noticed that the flight was never longer than 40 minutes! So why put 1hr43? Because of the traffic over JFK? Hmm...
The pitch was a little short though and there wasn't any service at all during this 30 minute flight. Just the safety instructions.
Not a very happy flight, the only positive: I have at last arrived!
