25

So how long does it take to fly from Great Falls, Montana to Asheville, NC? That’s right, 25 hours.

WEDNESDAY, Jan. 28

  1. Great Falls, MT -> Salt Lake City, UT — All was well
  2. Salt Lake City, UT -> Detroit, MI — Delayed, boarded late
  3. Detroit, MI -> Asheville, NC — Missed this flight

THURSDAY, Jan. 29

  1. Detroit, MI -> Atlanta, GA — Delayed, Pilot got lost & couldn’t find our gate
  2. Atlanta, GA -> Asheville, NC — Missed this one too
  3. Atlanta, GA -> Asheville, NC – Tried to deny my boarding pass at the gate; boarded anyway
