Since I mostly fly United, I’m used to learning about a four hour delay ten minutes before the flight is scheduled to depart. Well, tonight I’m flying Northwest to Detroit, and I’m meeting my brother there. I purposely scheduled it so that we would get in within 15 minutes of each other, but his flight is already showing a 25 minute delay. Now, that’s no big deal, but the flight isn’t for another six hours. If I ever saw a delay at United six hours in advance, I would assume the plane was on a different planet.
So, is Northwest just that good at predicting delays, or is this small delay a sign of what’s to come?
On the plus side I’ll be flying into DTW, so I can just ride the train from one end of the concourse to the other until he gets there without a chance in hell of getting bored….
