This was one of the longest layovers of my life! I was sitting in the New York airport almost all day. I had to pick up my luggage from the terminal I landed in, and then find my way to the next terminal where I spent the day sitting on my bag, listening to music, and trying to sleep/not sleep. I eventually gave in and slept in the food court holding my bag. When I was finally able to check in, my luggage was overweight so I had to pay an extra $50. I went through security and then, when everything was done, sat at the gate for what seemed like forever! When I got on the plane I was sitting in a window seat next to an older south african woman. She was nice but kinda stuck up. Waiting for me was a bunch of really cool things that the airline had prepared. I was pretty excited to be flying south african airlines, they were good people giving a good service.
