So it was an easy boarding process. I thought.
But no. We went down the ramp to stairs. Huh? No jet way? Nope. Then at the bottom: a bus! Really? So we boarded and waited and waited as everyone else got on. Well. Not everyone else. But a full bus. There would be multiple bus trips we could tell.
The bus ride was forever! For a moment I thought they were taking us to Orly, the other airport south of Paris. And the ride was like an E-ticket at Disneyland for those of you who remember that. (E did not stand for electronic).
Finally at the aircraft. And more stairs!!! What is Delta thinking?
And we have a companion dog on board. In general I am sympathic to companion dogs. This is a Great Dane…. A guy I was chatting with showed me a photo he took on another flight he was on- the companion animal was a miniature horse. Really.
So getting on early gave me a chance to get all my bags stowed. My electronic gear out. I am ready. Going to read and listen to Hamilton. That will take up 2+ hours. We land At 2 in SLC. Then customs. Then Sac here I come. I got up at 6am and will be home at 1 am Paris time. Whew.
