I should point out that if it wasn't for the airport cop interrupting my check in, I probably would have never noticed him. He was both in and out in a flash and his security detail wasn't even around him while he was there. He was hiding in the back while the security detail kept an eye on me (I was the only one with them most of the time. ).

Should have offered to buy them a beer.

I would have had to snoop around in one of those private cubicles to find him. He completely disappeared while he was there. Maybe that's why he flies through JAX. I may have ruined that for him.

Well, I meant buy the cops a beer, since they have actual jobs....

Maybe he decided to put a few mini-paks of cheese in his briefcase!

If so, now that they have cut the size of the cheese packets by about half, it would only be petty theft, not grand theft.

Wow, that is something you rarely see

Did Delta offer him any "Marraige equality takes flight" memorabilia? Perhaps he was there to coordinate his an Señor Cruz' participation in Delta's launch of new regularly scheduled service to Havana?

Lord, this means that anyone can use that club. If Rubio is there, run for your life.

Shocked that this thread has not been closed or taken the short hop over to OMNI/PR yet....

I'm definitely on Team Marco...
but I'm surprised he was on DL. I would think that AA would be his go-to given the MIA presence.
