Just Passing Through

It turns out that while everyone did have to get off the plane at Sydney, we don't have to be re-screened, and that gave me maybe 30 minutes to get lunch in the Air New Zealand lounge (that's United's partner here). The lounge here is much bigger and well-appointed than Melbourne's, but I really don't have much time to appreciate it, as I see that the gate for the long leg of my flight (SYD-LAX) is now open. They have a direct SYD-SFO flight, but there was no availability for my frequent-flier miles, and thus I have to make a stop at LAX before getting back to SFO.

I have to admit that I hope that the couple with the crying baby in seats 1AK directly in front of me are on the SFO flight rather than being my companions across the Pacific. OTOH, I'm so tired that it might not make a difference.
