Bit scary this - my first overseas trip by air on my own! At 47! I’ve always had someone in tow to rely on for finding my way around, or picking up things from hotel rooms when I have left them, and there’s no one but myself to rely on.

Another enjoyable, if slightly frustrating, trip earning Tier Points, which included my first ever overnight delay caused by a flight cancellation.
I was first off the aircraft and power-walked through Arrivals. The place was as good as empty. It's a lovely terminal.
My flight home was due to depart from Gate C126. United Airlines (UA) advertise they start boarding 50 mins before departure time, so I headed down there early.
Well this wasn't the trip I thought I would be doing today! Stuck in New York due to (primarily) a BA IT cockup which held me up by over 4 hours
It was a great feeling to walk from the AA inbound flight straight into a nice suite of lounges, where I could wait for my BA flight back to Heathrow.
The AA Flagship Lounge attendants recognised me. It's really nice when you get some personal interaction with the lounge team.
Time to head back to the UK. Although the weather has been awful today, my trip has ended with a wonderful sunset.
