This, gentle reader, is not our aircraft.
Our aircraft is a 747. This is an Airbus A330 which is parked on the Qantas flight line where our plane should be.
Our plane is westbound somewhere over the Pacific, running two plus hours late.
Let’s hope the hotel in the big Apple has 24 hour check in. We will be getting there somewhere around 3am tomorrow.
Or is that today?
The time zones do my head in.
This is a great terminal, and the Qantas staff very helpful.
The face scanner threw a hissy fit when I rocked up. I know I’m ugly, but this was ridiculous.
I had to front a real human being who compared my passport photo with me.
It was me.
Apparently the technology has problems with beard colour. It doesn’t like grey. If I had known that, I would have dyed it in the interests of efficiency.
Now it’s hurry up and wait. Reminds me of the army.......
