Yesterday’s travel delays, in the end, cost us our ability to be at the screening of Purple State of Mind in Salt Lake City last night.
The final delay was actually comical. After waiting for an hour for the arrival of the one missing crew member, the packed flight made it to a point just before takeoff (before the final turn onto the takeoff runway) from Denver. We sat there for about twenty minutes. Then the pilot came on and rather sheepishly told us that they had loaded the wrong “cargo” onto the flight and they needed to return to the gate. Forty minutes later we once again taxied out to the runway and miraculously we were on our way.
