We got to LAX hours before our flight so we could check in early and get aisle seats. Also, we’d never live it down if we missed this flight, too. We sat, ate, read, checked in, and were at the gate for the filght to Bangkok early.
We were sitting around, but there was no announcement to board, even though they said they’d board 40 minutes early. About 20 minutes before the flight was supposed to leave, I walked up to the counter. They had been calling for Thai Airways, just not over the PA system. We couldn’t hear it where we were sitting. But we managed to get on the flight before it left. We made it to Bangkok, and we only have one more plane to catch to get to Kathmandu. The odds are getting better all the time!
I am half way through Anathem.
