The aircraft came from where?

Pingbacks

  1. […] United airlines seemed to have run out of funds to pay for gates at Frankfurt. We were at a gate (Z22) where we checked-in, got our boarding passes security stamped, etc. But there was no plane at the end of the jetway. I looked, it was a regular sized jetway with double gates – the type used for wide-body aircraft, but they still had no plane. We were made to walk down two flights of stairs to buses. Those took us mid-field to our 777 parked near a taxiway. It was snowing and most of us did not even have jackets on us. I had checked mine in, not expecting to need it till I landed in the US. […]

  1. That’s a lot of flying! My car averages 30mph I think, but i wonder what it’s average speed is with those long hauls, ha.
