The day we left for Las Vegas, it was so cold and snowy that I thought they might cancel our flight. The Pittsburgh airport and Southwest Airlines has the weather under control, and can handle almost any situation.
Have you ever wondered how they clear so much snow in such a short amount of time?
Take a look at this. This is how they do it. Snow plow after snow plow, one right behind the other and staggered so they are plowing a very wide area.
Have you ever wondered how they de-ice an airplane?
|These were taken out of the airplane window.|
Finally, we landed in Denver. We actually passed our airplane still hooked up and loading. We thought if we could make a run for it, we could make it.
We must have looked a sight.... My Hubs with his knee replacement and me with my hip replacement on a mad dash through the airport.
When we got to our gate there was another couple that had been on the same flight as we were on waiting to go to Las Vegas also.
They had already closed all the doors. OH NO!!! But..... They called ahead to the captain and he would let the 4 of us have the 4 last seats ...,, But, they couldn't wait for our luggage to be transferred. The luggage they said would be on the next flight.
That's fine..., let's go!!
Thank You Southwest Airlines, for getting us to Las Vegas safely. Also, thank you for delivering our bags the same night.
