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.
