After a 9:30 hour flight to JFK, we managed to land at 6 am in spite of the frost. However, my connection to Seattle just like most of the outgoing flights at J.F.K airport in NY had been cancelled.
I was told the next flight to Seattle would leave only at 17 pm and as it was already overbooked, I was put on the stand by list with the warning I might have to wait for the next one (Sunday at 17:00). The prospect of having to spend 24 hours there awakened my survival skills and after a coffee at Starbucks and taking this pic, I decided to look for a nicer place to spend the day. I went to the Crown business room and for $ 25 got a pass to use all the facilites (drinks, coffee, water, fruit and snacks + wireless connection + comfortable seating and also the possibility to have a nice warm shower).
I worked on my presentations, corrected my stds tests and checked my mail. Also met Valerie Jakar from Israel, who is at the same convention so the afternoon was much lighter . I managed to get my flight to Seattle at 5 and landed here at 9:40. Got into the hotel at 11 and after a wonderful sleep, going out to see Seattle in a second.
