Tonight I fly from Los Angeles to Sydney. I desperately hope this flight departs on time.
Last flight from Australia to Los Angeles, left 11 hours late.
I had flown in from Auckland to connect onto the LA flight and was met at the gate by a V Australia rep. As a result of an engine explosion on a flight out of LA all of the V Australia services had been delayed in a roll on effect.
I was very impressed with the way V looked after its transit passengers. They bussed us to a hotel, gave us a $50 spend at the hotel (which I didn’t spend).
I got a gym workout , a run, some shopping and a lunch with a friend before I flew out.
All in all a nice delay! Thank goodness I made it to my destination in time though.
