United Airlines 1754
Fort Lauderdale (FLL) – San Francisco (SFO)
18 April 2015
After landing in Fort Lauderdale, I decided to grab some coffee (which by the way took at least 15 minutes, since there was a huge line and the people working there didn’t seem to be in any rush), and as I got my coffee, boarding was announced for group 1. So you could technically say that I flew to Fort Lauderdale to drink some coffee…
Thankfully the crew changed (since they flew overnight), so I wouldn’t have to explain why I’m flying back on the same plane to the same city I just came from… The flight was operated by a
Continental United B737.
Boarding was quick and efficient, everyone was onboard ahead of departure time and we departed shortly thereafter on a gorgeous day in Florida.
For breakfast, there were two options:
- Waffles, fruit, yogurt, and some sort of unidentified meat (next to the waffles)
- Scrambled eggs with sausage, fruit, yogurt
Obviously I went for the waffles and thankfully I was in seat 2A this time, so they didn’t run out of the waffles (which is a popular choice).
The breakfast service was super slow in that we finished eating by the time we were approaching New Mexico, I could tell the FAs had a very good time chatting in the galley. The views outside were beautiful.
About an hour before landing, pre-landing cookies were distributed. I could tell they weren’t really “fresh”, but rather just heated up a lot since they melted as you picked them up.
I had some tea with lemon and sugar to go along with my cookie.
We began descending right as we made it over California’s border.
You gotta love the different colours while landing in San Francisco…
We made it to the gate shortly after landing and I had around a two hour connection until my final flight back to Seattle, which was operated by a CRJ700 and let me just say that was probably the most boring flight ever. If it’s one thing I hate, it’s regional jets, I absolutely despise them. Yes, they may be efficient, but the space is so damn limited, and not to mention I’m 192 cm tall and therefore constantly bump my head on parts of the small jets… I made it home around 25 hours after I left it the day before and the third mileage run was over. Just two more to go!
