Christmas Eve at the DTW Terminal
I certainly would have preferred to be sailing now... perhaps nearing the Rio Dulce or passing through Belize? I booked my flight to Thailand looking only at the price and one fare, from an airport along the route my friends would be driving to visit mom stood out at $200 less. I finally took the time to look closer at the itinerary on the drive north. After a short flight from Saginaw, Michigan to Detroit Airport I had a 22 hour layover. I did manage to get some sleep. Just as I was getting kind of cold having decided to pack my jacket in my checked bag...an airport employee was handing out Delta blankets to the dozen or so terminal over nighters I noticed around the terminal end I’d chose. I had found couch type seating in an open air restaurant seating area.
The wait is nearly over. We should start boarding in a little over one hour.
