The <redacted> official daily schedule showed him arriving at MIA at 5:25PM to speak to a meeting of the Republican National Committee at (guess where?) Doral. Says he arrives back at MIA to fly to Washington at 7:25PM.

Moot point now. I’m on 112 and went back to D21 to offload someone who isn’t feeling well.

So Miami Dade EMT’s came on board and now the guy says he’s fine. Over an hour late departure so far and now waiting to take on fuel. I hope he doesn’t feel sick again midway over the Atlantic. Guy should have A. Never walked on this plane at all or B. after delaying an hour he “feels better” he should have de-planed. Ugh.

flew PVD-DCA on AA 5524 yesterday. 10 min out of DC, captain spins the plane just before we get near Andrews (check out the FlightAware). Says on the PA there was VIP movement. delay caused me to miss my connection 😬

Was in Zurich on Monday.. saw AF1 taxi and takeoff.... even the police there were excited about it.. come to the lounge where you can step outside to take pics.
and that alone with the FA's who were showing us video of the takeoff..
You have to say.. the 747 is still a lovely lady
