flight to nowhere  
it's been a few years since i've been on a flight to nowhere. my last flight to nowhere was in 2004, and it went somewhere a few hours later. so, i guess i was overdue.

i just got off of air canada flight 7688 to nowhere, by way of a 20 minute holding pattern off the coast of massachusetts. it took an hour and 51 minutes from takeoff on runway 28 at montreal to landing on runway 24L at montreal. thanks to US preclearance, this lovely trip involved two stops at customs -- US customs before boarding, and canadian customs on my way out again.

the pilot cleverly flew halfway back to montreal before telling us what was going on, so we were starting our descent before we really had a chance to beg for free alcohol.

tomorrow, i get to fly home by way of toronto.

on the bright side, i get an extra starwood stay out of this.
