(I cracks me up)
Well I'm sat here in Heathrow's soon-to-be-demolished-so-lets-not-spend-any-more-on-it Terminal Two ("Terminal" being the operative word) waiting for a replacement flight. The 0820 flight wast cancelled which I think is putting it nicely, as the plane is in Gatwick. So it's not really canceled. It doesn't even exist. Either way, they put me on the 'next' flight to Lisbon which isn't 'till 1140 so I've had a marvelous time walking around in circles.
I've already bought "Guitar Hero: On Tour" for the Nintendo DS and played that for a whole 20 minutes before deciding it was even too geeky for me. Seriously.
I've now retired to the wifi hotspot, next to The Perfume Gallery who apparently have the worst taste in music throughout the whole of BAA's airports. Do you remember that song "When the crowd says bo-selecta"? Yeah? We had that earlier. And 'Sweet Like Chocolate'. I'm not sure if it's an improvement, but we now have the old best-of Michael Jackson. Pretty sure it isn't.
I was given a £10 lunch voucher from TAP (Air Portugal) for some reason. Perhaps people actually depend on the food they get on planes. I just thought it was really weird that anyone would be checking in, only to find their flight had been canceled, and the only thing they would be concerned about is "when do I get my breakfast?".
And I've just remembered, there's a 'Rule' for american airlines (in general, not the soon to be "British" American Airline) that says if their flight is cancelled for any reason other than the weather, they should get you on the next flight on any airline. See, fun and educational. Well maybe just educational.
From some quick research I've found my £10 lunch voucher can't be used in exchange for alcohol, massages, gambeling loses or new flights.
Gate Seven, I better dash!
