Okay AVgeeks….I never reported on my last fateful flight on WN. I had a meeting near the airport in Vegas. My meeting was supposed to end at 5 pm, so I booked a 7pm flight home. I haven’t had very good luck with flights in the last few months since I started traveling again, but this time was an odd, and profitable, exception. As you know, I’ve been delayed and cancelled every time.
My meeting ended early, and my flight was delayed, giving me 6 unexpected hours to kill. I ubered to the strip and went to one of my favorite hangouts where you get 3 drinks for $10 and everything on the menu is $5. For $15, I had three grey goose martinis and flank steak with potatoes and veg, and still had some time to kill. I wandered to the casino, put $20 in a machine, and….
Yup, with 3 spins, I won $500. Finally, I headed to the airport where I went to the AMEX centurion lounge, had some cookies and 2 more cocktails, and headed to my gate, where my flight was finally ready to take me home.
All in all, I have no complaints. My delay was exceedingly fun and profitable, and I got home safe and sound. Also, Trip picked me up, which is probably for the best, having had 5 cocktails over the past few hours. That’s a WiN!!
