This is in Transportation because I thought I would stop with what the airports and flights were like. It turned into a very special trip, so I kept writing. Sorry, it should be under General Europe.
Got to the airport 2 hours early. Nothing but carryon, so went straight to the pre-check line, they only wanted to see my ID and sent me through to the conveyor belt. Shoes and belt stayed on. Took only minutes.
Bought tacos and coffee and sat in the restaurant for an hour.
At the gate vented masks aren't allowed, but United will give you a mask if thats all you have. Everyone wearing masks,, everyone keeping distances.. Only one guy with just nose hanging out.
Boarding was not by boarding number, it was by seat number starting from the back.
Its a full flight, but easier than the old days; organized, no crowding, no pushing. Let's hope this never changes.
Leaving the plane is in groups of ten. Again, well organized.
Here in my domestic stop the domestic terminals are pretty lively, but the international terminal is a freaking ghost town.....
