JFK AA What a joke. The driver dropped us off by curbside check-in. A porter came up to us and offered to take our bags. Since the check-in was 25 feet away we said no thanks and rolled the bags over. They wouldn't take our bags since we didn't use the porters! We then had to go inside and we were directed all the way in the back. When we got there it was self service. So we had to check ourselves in and pay $20 for each first bag. Then we had to wait on a really long line to have them weigh our luggage.One bag was just under 50 and one was just over so she let it go. Thank goodness I would have had to open and redistribute the stuff.
Went we started for the gate our flight was on time(10:45AM)by time we got to the gate it was 2 hours late! Supposedly rain in SF was the problem.So I started reading guess what? Jules Verne's Around the World in 80 Days. I had never read it but I remembered the movie from when I was a kid. I just watched it recently.
The flight was fine but Den's earphone jack didn't work and they don't even give you free peanuts. Den managed to sleep the whole flight.
Our hotel is near Union Square. It would have been really nice if we had gotten in on time. I had to look at the galleries through the windows.We ate at Lefty O'Douls.
When we got back to the room there was a message from the grandkids.When they ended their message with Bye- Bye my grand daughter added Buy me something!
We tried the Magic Jack-it worked but the calls were breaking up. Bon called us on Skypes we could see her but I couldn't get the video to work on our end. I think I might have turned off the cam without knowing it.Well we finally found the function key for the cam (the worst thing about this MSI is there is no manual)
I expect rain on 90% of this vacation-it always rain everywhere I go. I'm hoping Hawaii will be the exception.We'll see. RO
