moon

back to the long gray rain

We arrived back in Portland after 10pm last night. Our flight from Atlanta was delayed, first by a late-arriving plane and later we know not why, but we sat in the plane for 90 minutes after boarding before it started to move. I personally think that the airlines would get a better reaction if they were to be honest about needing to do repairs on a plane rather than keeping us in the dark. The silence regarding the reason for the delay causes suspicions of worse things than the probable truth. Many of us would be reassured to know that they were fixing something about the plane.
