I was indeed fortunate to not have the middle seat fill, which made for a decent flight across the country this morning. Those winds that delayed my return to the Bay Area by around an hour last week seem to still be blowing the same direction, as we got to Charlotte 45 minutes early. I find that this airport has free wi-fi, like PDX. In fact, the general feel of this place, based on only a few minutes acquaintance, is similar to the rebuilt Portland Airport. Still, no time to sit here; I need to take advantage of the extra time to get something to eat and take a little walk before my 4:10 flight up to Boston.
