Now I’ve went and done it. I’ve gotten myself on a trip and I haven’t done this in quite some time. I’m going to Germany to learn some more about technology and eat some bratwurst. Well, truthfully, the company didn’t send me to eat bratwurst, but I added that to my list of things “to do”.
So, here I sit in the World Club [Northwest’s version of an airline club that I have access to through their alliance with Continental] on the free WiFi waiting for my first leg of the flight. I have learned two great pieces of news at the ticket counter:
- There is now an “elite” security line here at Dulles, which is awesome for frequent travellers – one of which I might not be after the turn of the year when my status expires…
- There is now a shuttle between the C and A terminals in Newark – this TOTALLY ROCKS! Previously when connecting through Newark, one had to leave terminal A [where flights from here and a few other cities arrive], exit the secured area and ride a train to terminal C and go back through security again. Now, I won’t have to do that. Most excellent.
The first leg of this flight will be the short hop to Newark, followed by a little layover, and then a long trip to Frankfurt. Let’s hope I figure out how to get to my hotel when I get there!
I’ll let you know how the trip goes.
