My flight was bound to depart at 7:55 PM, but I didn't catch a cab until 5:45 PM. While I was nervously squirming in my seat, I called British Airways, praying for a flight delay. Strange, isn't it? But O'Hare is truly reliable! The flight was delayed to 8:45 PM. Moreover...there was absolutely no one standing in line! Granted, it was probably due to the fact that I arrived past the boarding time. Even so, it was a blessing. Usually, there is a huge trailing line that I have to contend with, thus missing my flight and having to resort to stand-by. The staff at the front desk were chirpy and helped me figure out which bags to check in. Currently, I am waiting in the lounge, hoping the flight does not get delayed any further.
