So I was traveling from DCA to CHS this morning, we get on the plane, everyone is ready to go, the young lady pilot steps out to the microphone at the front to tell us they have to turn the plane off, wait 5 minutes, then back on to reboot it. Aside from how bizarre this is, I tell my daughter this will not end well, in about 15min they will determine that plane isn't going anywhere, and finding another plane is going to be problematic.

Shonuff after turning the airplane off, then waiting, then turning it back on and fooling around with it again, she comes back out and tells us the airplane is broken and is not going anywhere, they are going to have to try find another airplane. This is going to take about an hour. We can sit there or go into the terminal if we want. No one gets up. So then a few minutes later she comes back and tells us we have to get off, so we do that.


Then a little while later they change the gate to another one across the way, there is another plane there I guess they stole from some other flight. We finally load up that one, it is kinda weird as it is all the same people in all the same places, same crew, like a Twilight Zone thing. It got off OK, we were about 1.5hr late arriving in CHS.

We rented something called a Lincoln MKZ or MKT or something, it was like a big wagon but said "Town Car" on it. Somehow I do not see the guidos driving that around Boston with the "A Touch of Class" plate on the front. Nice enough vehicle but the controls were extremely strange. The fan control was a metal bar detail that had LED lights behind, you swiped on the bar to make it go up or down. I only figured that out trying to push everything on the dash to get the AC working better and inadvertently swiped on it. You could also do it from the touch scree, which required something close to a hammer blow to get to respond. I never did figure out how to get the electric hatch to close itself except with the fob. There was a touch button under the bumper to open it (a stupid location) but nothing to push to close it.
