What Air Travel Is Supposed To Be

So, tonight I’m in Seattle. But that’s not important right now. What’s important is how I got here.

When I’m in the Pacific Northwest, I fly Alaska Air, and today was no exception. What made the trip…um…exceptional, was the appearance of free wine (or beer if you preferred) on the relatively short hour-and-a-half flight. Combine that with the fact that I was the only person on a FULL (well, mostly full) flight who had the row all to herself, and you’ve got yourself a real treat.

What the airline provided in style, the rental car company made up for in aggravation. Thirty minutes at the rental counter (for an ordinary, run-of-the-mill rental) destroyed all the relaxation created by the wonderful flight.

Ah well. One can’t have it all.
