Snowed In

Currently sitting in the United Airlines lounge at Narita airport waiting for my connection to Seoul; the airport here is snowed in, most outbound flights are delayed and when I got to the gate 15 minutes before departure time (having just got my boarding pass and seen the departure marked as ‘On Time’ on the screens everywhere), I was told that there was no plane yet. Now it has vanished from the indicator boards and they are telling us to wait for announcements.

I am rapidly coming to the conclusion that flying today is not the way to get around. If I had the time, I think I’d prefer to take a ship. At least there you get proper meals, a proper bed to sleep in and can walk around more easily.

  1. Personally I’m gunning for the transporter beam. The only downside is the associated death ray technology it could unleash on the world.

  2. Not sure how much I would trust a transporter beam. Now, if they could get a plane that went 10x the speed of the current generation, and was still economical and safe, that might be the way to go.
