So after missing the direct flight, it turns out I'm back on the flight that connects through LAX. And it seems the flight from LAX-SFO has been mysteriously converted to a first class seat in the process.
I have to say, the AA 767 was a much nicer flight experience than the NW 757. In-flight movies! And I got to see an episode of "How I Met Your Mother" that I hadn't seen. It must be really cheap to get the rights to show Cheers and Wings episodes on flights; they filled the rest of the flight time with that, once they ran out of actual content. :)
Anyway, just checking in real quick from LAX before boarding. Turns out this airport Internet service I bought, on a whim, in Minneapolis, a few weeks ago, continues to be useful.
Edit: I gotta use an LA Story lj icon for this post!
