Getting to Washington National Airport this morning was very uneventful.
Getting to Miami International airport was also very uneventful.
Then began the “walk”! I arrived at Concourse D. I had to walk to Concourse J to be able to check in for my Caribbean Airlines flight to Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago. When I finally made it to the ticket counter, it was about 10:50. There was a family already there waiting. They had just returned from a cruise. They must have been gone for months…they had more luggage than one could count!
There were no agents at the ticket counter. I looked at the monitor above the counter. It indicated check-in would begin at 11:30. As the family and I waited, some of the security personnel for the airline began “building” the rope line for the cue to the counter. I watched 11:30 come and go. No airline employees showed. Finally, at about 11:50, the agents arrived with a cart full of supplies. They spent the next 15 minutes setting up the counter; placing luggage tags, staplers, flowers, etc.
I ultimately received my boarding pass and went through security. Once in the concourse, I went straight to the food court. There is a McDonald’s there, I could not resist. That was the first time I had eaten at McDonald’s in many, many months. It tasted pretty darn good!
From the food court I made it to my gate and ultimately onto the plane. Then it was off to Port of Spain.
