Yes…it’s a minor miracle. On June 22, 2007, yours truly transited Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport on United Airlines and almost made it through the entire trip on time. In fact, my inbound flight to ORD arrived early. My departing flight would’ve been on time, but United elected to delay the departure in order to accommodate some late arriving connecting passengers. In my book, that was a reasonable call as this was the last flight of the day to DCA, and the number of passengers that ultimately boarded appeared to be significant enough to justify waiting. It only took 10 minutes for the passengers to arrive, but unfortunately, it was 20 more minutes before their bags made it. Long story short, I walked in the door just shy of 1AM this morning. Oh well….that’s what I get for booking myself on the last flight of the day from ORD.
