We are in the Red Carpet Lounge in Denver, Colorado waiting for our connecting flight to Phoenix.
Lorraine scored a first class seat on the Toronto-Denver leg. We had used our points to fly front of the bus but the first leg did not have 3 open seats. At check-in, the gate attendant was kind enough to offer the one remaining open first-class seat. Maybe United is not such a bad airline after all.
Our arrival time is around 12:30pm — west coast. All in, about 11 hours of travel time. Long day. After we check-in to the resort, I suspect we will crash poolside for the balance of the day.
Oh, and wake up at 3am tomorrow morning. It will take a few days to adjust to the time zone change.
