Airports

Layovers, delayed flights, mixups – these are all dreaded parts of traveling, but with the right attitude 8 hours in a foreign airport can be pretty fun! Do you have any stories from airports on tour?

    I remember leaving the Atlanta airport at 6:00 PM and landing in Holland at 7:00 AM, and the sun never setting. I remember being very unsettled about that…

    I remember getting to the airport in 1995 for the flight back home and finding out 15 of us had been bumped to another flight because they had overbooked. Eddie and Mr. Naff told the airline that was UNACCEPTABLE, and they better bump the other overbooked passengers to another flight because they were NOT going to leave us in Holland. We came as a group and we were leaving as a group. I also remember making the call to my mom, and her FLIPPING out on the phone and calling the airline herself.

    Needless to say, the 15 of us got bumped up to 1st class! It was so cold up there though that I would switch seats with other members on tour for like 30 mins at a time so they could experience 1st class too. LOL….

    - The airplane is where band camp flirting turns to full on summer fling. :)
    - Picking people up at the airport as an alumni was TONS of fun! I loved being the first person that got to greet someone!! That was when you could still go to the gates to wait on someone to arrive.

      And you were the one who met me! After talking over email for weeks, it was awesome to see/meet someone I felt I already knew! It made the trip much less unsettling once I saw you. :)
