Flight Delay! Passing Some Time in Palm Springs

On a recent trip to Palm Springs I was unable to take my favorite airline ABU (Anything But United). On the return flight I followed conventional wisdom and showed up at the aitport an hour before flight time. Only to find that my flight would be delayed for two hours.

United customer service

My first stop was at United ‘customer service.’ Since the two hour delay would mean that I’d miss my connection in Denver I had to be booked onto a later connection.

Downtown Palm Springs is only about 10 minutes from the airport so we hopped in a cab and off we went.

Sunday brunch

One more outdoor brunch before heading back to winter in the northeast doesn’t sound so bad.

Is that some sort of IoT device on that plam tree?

Uh oh! Flight time has been moved up a half hour. Call an Uber car.

Just wait a little bit more

Boarding plane

All aboard!

My plane landed in Denver in time to make my original connection. But I had lost that seat when I was rebooked onto a later connection that was due to leave in three hours. And then that flight was delayed 2-1/2 hours. And they call it the friendly skies.

    My family visited Palm Springs as a kid. Guess we didn’t know what to do because it seemed really boring. This looks like a much better trip.

    I have never been to Palm Springs although I’ve been to many other parts of the state. It looks so small town compared to other parts of CA. I’ll have to go there sometime. I admire your travel schedule, Ken!
