... 10 minutes per person. After four hours of waiting in line and making small talk with the fellow travelers around us we reached the check in desk. At this point our flight had been well delayed, but at least we knew we would be on it. Piles and piles of bags were being tagged and stacked all over the terminal as the systems slowly came back online again.
