So, today at 7pm I was supposed to be leaving for Indonesia for a week. I wake up this morning with a text message from Cathay Pacific stating that my LAX-HKG flight was canceled due to a typhoon passing through the area. So I spent about 2.5 hours working with the travel agent to get a new flight booked for today at 5pm that still got me to Indonesia on Sunday (while still earning all my FF miles). I finally get all that resolved and then the bomb drops….
Someone messed up somewhere and FedEx, who was supposed to be delivering my passport with my Indonesian business visa by noon, re-delivered it back to our Houston office. Not sure where the screw up came, but needless to say, I won’t be flying today….
I should only miss about a half day of meetings, but I have wasted the whole damn morning on this and I just want to scream! So now I will be heading straight from flying for 23+ hours into meetings….
The cool thing about this whole ordeal is that I will be flying completely around the world now…
DFW-London-Singapore-Jakarta-Hong Kong-LAX-DFW…all in business class!
