You are 1 hour too early!

Can't believe it has been 11 years since this incident...

I remember this day well. I woke up in London having gone to sleep the night before watching coverage of the Kenya Airways crash off the coast of west Africa (was it Abijan or Accra?). It took a bit for it to register as both went down in the water. I had no other coverage until I got to Minneapolis later in the day.

A colleague lost her ex-boyfriend whom she still regarded as a friend, his brother and his parents. Oddly, through this accident she met her husband, who had also lost friends in the accident. A creepy twist of fate.
What could possibly be worse than not getting an upgrade? uhm....cancer, poverty, an STD...(do I need to add more?)

Feel strange to look at a Mad Dog with AS livery again.

Hard to believe it was 11 years ago. I was flying home that day from PVR to Spokane via LAX and SEA. The folks checking in for their flight in Puerto Vallarta ahead of me were on the flight to SAN. I think about that day often, and the folks who were on that flight. It is all part of who Alaska Airlines is today, and somehow how I feel about the airline that I fly on almost exclusively.
