AYCJ Day 8: Deja Vu all over again

I rolled out of bed at 4:30am this morning, just like yesterday. Took a shower and packed my bags, just like yesterday. Drove from my hotel to the Las Vegas Airport, just like yesterday. Through security and over to the Terminal D gates, just like yesterday. A quick visit to the Continental Presidents Club and a snack, just like yesterday. Headed over to gate D16 to board JetBlue flight 279 to Long Beach, just like yesterday. Today started of very much just like yesterday. I felt like I was living Bill Murray’s nightmare in Groundhog Day.

Here’s take off from Las Vegas and watching the Strip as we departed.

Even with the experience being almost identical to yesterday, I have absolutely no complaints. When the weather is as beautiful as we experienced on this morning’s flights there is simply no reason to complain. Truly beautiful.

IMGP5157Things finally started to be a bit different once I left the Long Beach airport. I rented my car from Hertz today instead of Avis, for example. And instead of driving up to LAX I headed to downtown Long Beach to visit the Aircraft Interiors Expo being held this week. Completely random, but given the opportunity to squee more about airplanes I figured why not. The even was pretty cool, especially because the folks from Aviointeriors had their new SkyRider seats on display. Definitely an interesting product there.

More hanging out with friends tonight and then flying up to Sacramento tomorrow. No new routes today but my next five flights all are so that’s nice. Here’s the running totals for the AYCJ pass so far:

Flights taken 7
Miles flown 4,382
New airports 1
New lines flown 3
Times I’ve been called crazy to my face 1
