The night before my departure I met some friends and we spent some time talking and drinking. After that, around midnight I came back home very tired, so actually I didn't finish preparing my baggage at all. That was done the next day on the morning, but problem was that I didn't check the time so I left home around 90 minutes before departure! I decided to take a taxi and that saved my life since I came just 1 hour before departure to the check in counter, at the very same time my flight was announcing time to boarding.

Always you can hear here you need to be 2 hours in advance for a flight, and if you go to USA you should even be earlier there. I just done totally the opposite. But I can talk, and talk tales, and speak about global warming and traffic issues. The auntie at delta counter was also nice and helpful (as you probably now, sometimes your life or better said your flight fate depends on the mood of the people behind the counters). Of course I was ready to wisely answer all typical questions when you go to USA: when did you prepare your package? Did you leave your package unattended? And so on.. you know all that fancy questions nobody take care. So were my answers. The only one I was not prepared to answer for was: why are you so late? I just was not in the mood to explain the whole history and betray my friends at the night before hahaha

anyway I was checked in after couple of minutes (really), went directly to the security gates: no queues, went to the gate just in time to boarding. In fact I just spend 1 hour for the whole thing.
Not bad.

It breaks my other records when I was going to Moscow or Seoul, but not sure if I should do the same again next time. Actually I need to relax and dont generate adrenalin, but it was cool.
