Flying for the first time in ages, I’d forgotten a bit just how bad this experience is.
Yes, it’s amazing tha I can get from my house to Kansas City in around 9-ish hours (20 minutes to the airport, 10 minutes from parking to the terminal, an hour before flight time, an hour and a half to Atlanta, three and a half hour layover, two hours to KC, 15 minutes to pick up the rental, and 30 minutes to the hotel=9.75 hours.).
But the experience is such a simulacrum of what is was. Too bad.
