Unfortunately it looks like they won’t need any volunteers on the redeye to Dulles, but that doesn’t seem to stop ’em from giving us a nice crew delay. My flight was scheduled to leave at 11:15PM, which means boarding should start at 10:45PM. Just a few minutes ago (around 10:40PM), the agent said we’re delayed due to a late inbound crew. She explained that three of the flight attendants are coming in from San Francisco, and that we’d board in about 30 minutes, which would be 11:10PM.
I’m looking at the flight status for the flight from San Francisco, and it’s due in at 11:22PM. By the time the passengers get off their plane it’ll probably be 11:40PM. In other words, boarding isn’t starting at 11:15PM. It’s quite literally impossible.
I’m also curious if the flight attendants take extra time getting to the gate, just in case they’re in a situation in which they could go “illegal.”
In other news, there’s a man yelling into his phone because his son is a liar. Apparently his son lied to his mother about something he ate, since he claimed he got teriyaki fried chicken from KFC, yet dad says KFC doesn’t have teriyaki fried chicken.
