We have a 5 hr flight to Minneapolis and the a 55 min flight to Des Moines. We paid for upgrade seating with more leg room......best $$$ I have spent. We had lots f eg room and each seat had a flip-up tv monitor with free movies or tv, which really made the 5 hr flight go by quickly.

Got in Des Moines at 11:00 pm and we were home about midnight.

Our day entailed four states: Michigan, Indiana, Illinois and Iowa including 100 Kms of the worst highway surface conditions either of us have ever endured (yes, even worse than Port Elgin Christmas of 1984 or Grand Forks, ND conference champs of 2006) and there was not even any 'active' weather.
