Four questions 1.Are you at the right gate? 2. Is this the right flight time? 3. Is this the right Flight? 4. Is this the right airport? If all is true then will post another question 😀

Do you still have your carry-on with you? One time I forgot mine at the Amex lounge. Had to jump through 1 million hoops to retrieve it

Those of us who never stopped flying during the pandemic will miss the days of empty seats and space in bvb the boarding areas. But until they start serving alcohol on flights it isn't back to normal yet

But CNN says the world is ending? What gives?
