Business Travel: It Still Sucks

Got the the Atlanta airport yesterday for my flight home.

Flight delayed 90 minutes -- American Airlines and Amex Travel clueless and unhelpful. They didn't know what was happening, but I suspect the thunderstorms that rolled through Atlanta earlier had bolluxed things up.

By the time we actually had a plane and boarded, it was two hours. Then we sat at the gate for 20 minutes -- had to wait for them to push planes out of our way so we could taxi.

Then we taxied for 40 minutes -- a gazillion planes ahead of us. So we're now three hours late getting out.

Get to LaGuardia, go to baggage claim -- baggage coming out on wrong carousel. Again. I suspect they use monkeys to do this work.

In the car, headed out. Traffic on the Whitestone Bridge and all the way up the Hutch -- construction.

Finally got home and crawled into bed at 12:30 a.m.

Business travel sucks.
