Why Delta rock...

..because they put a neat little bookmark in the at-seat care bag.

I'm shocked. An airline that actually expects you to read. And with cabin service that really puts United and AA in the shade.

In other travel news, Altanta airport was actually much less confusing than I'd been led to believe. This might well be because I was changing from one Delta flight to another. However I did find an iPod vending machine, which struck me as most peculiar. It has been photographed, and pictures will be posted in due course.

Las Vegas is hot, and the Wynn Hotel is extremely cool (and that's not just the air-con). We're on the 21st floor, with a wonderful view out to the mountains. I really didn't mind waking up at a god-forsaken hour, when I could watch the sun rise over the desert.

Cirque du Soleil tonight!

What confused me was when I arrived off an international flight, picked up luggage to go through immigration and customs, and then had to go through a security scan to get into the rest of the airport.

Do you want to trust the security scans at (say) Lagos?

What I want is not to be treated like a criminal when I haven't done anything.

Realistically, I've never seen a security scan on arrivals at any other airport, so it seemed rather messed up.

Ah, that's because once you leave international arrivals, you have to enter the domestic departures area. It makes a bit more sense when you look at it in those terms.

It's the same at Orlando and Seattle.

Bad airport design.

Sounds like Atlanta and Delta have improved a lot since i went through there...

Or maybe you're traveling in something other than cattle class?

Have fun!

Luckily that meant I was first at immigration...

Cirque du Soleil! Is that the "Zumanity" show? I've been longing to see that one with dougs; please let us know how it is. :)

No, it's the new "Ka" at the MGM Grand.

I think there are now four different permanent shows in Las Vegas! "Zumanity" is at the New York, New York, "O" is at the Bellagio, and there's another one somewhere else (not counting the new "La Reve" here at the Wynn, and the Celine Dion show at Caesar's Palace which are choregraphed by Cirque De Soleil staff...)

I'm sure "Ka" will be awesome, too! Have a great time. :)

It was damn good.

I'd describe Ka as their free climbing and ropework show.

iPod vending machine? Bizarre. Do they come empty or pre-loaded, and if the latter, then with what?
May. 6th, 2005 06:54 am (UTC)
I think unloaded. See later entry for picture!

No wireless to be had at ATL anywhere (except possibly bootlegged by sitting close to a Delta clubhouse and hoping the signal is strong enough to penetrate a wall), Laptop Lane is US$0.65/minute and the three 'net computers at Terminal E have an incomprehensible pricing structure which ended up charging me about $8.78 for 9 minutes' dial-up modem time.


Still, I managed to get a four-hour nap on DL in economy, which is more than I ever have with Virgin.
