If I had one wish today it would be to have my very own plane. One that didn’t leave without me. Require going through security. Allows me to carry as many bags as I want without charge. Doesn’t ask how much I weigh. Has a pilot who is glad to see me.
Yes, that would be nice, but instead I am waiting for a little plane to fly me away a day late after missing my connection from Boston to Rockland, Maine by 2 minutes. Two very expensive minutes requiring an additional $262 to stay in a airport hotel. I know, I could have spent the night at the airport. Been there, done that and prefer not to again.
Bags are loaded in the wing of this very small plane. Ready to go, frustrated but happy to be underway and dreaming of having my very own plane.

  1. UGH…… So sorry, LuLu. I wish you had that plane too so you could whip back and forth more easily!
    Hope the rest of your trip goes well.
    We make the final leg today and arrive late aft. We will be thinking of you!

  2. Oh, Linda, we have experienced that overnight stay in Boston for missing the Rockland flight, too. You are too tired to rent a car and can’t enjoy the hotel you have to stay in. We feel your pain!

  3. As wishes go, teleportation has always been mine. No plane required. Just snap my fingers, and voila, I’m there!

    The other is a kitchen that flushes.

  4. I’ve missed the plane and/or had it cancelled and stayed with friends, cousins, or the Hilton, only to have the morning flights cancelled too! Still, we are lucky to have any service at all into RKD. (Net Jets — we all deserve Net Jets!)

  5. If I won the lottery I’d go out immediately and buy one of those little planes for all the reasons you just cited. Having missed too many flights, gone through too much security, having too many flights cancelled…. But then I don’t buy lottery tickets and I really have an irrational fear of small planes so that’s probably not going to happen.
