You get to the airport early. You check in. You get to the gate.
And then you get slapped in the face by “operational difficulties.”
At least that’s the phrase I seem to have heard once too often when I’m desperate to just get home.
You might imagine, though, that especially in the summertime of storms, that the weather is actually the biggest cause of flight delays.
Not any more, it isn’t.
Neither is someone in air-traffic control pushing the wrong button.
