    Plane still missing. Supposed to board in 13 minutes. Still says on time, though.

    Currently, I'm standing by the window feeling pretty much like this guy...

    People lining up to board!!!

    I'm kind of waiting to be the last one. I have seat 1A so I'm in no hurry.

    Except to get to Vegas!

    Spoke with the pilot. Tried the $20 trick. It must've worked!

    Supposed to land even earlier now! Every minute counts, right?

    These seats are SO comfortable! I really enjoy Spirit. Just about the last group of people are boarding.

    People were stopped for having bags that were too big and unpaid. That may delay us a bit.

    Meanwhile, they said nothing about my backpack luggage!

    See you all in Vegas!

    As is shown in the plane ticket, and in the photo of the TSA security area in the AA check in location, it's definitely T3 at ORD

    My "airport coffee workaround" has always been to go to the bar and order coffee there. Costs about the same as Starbucks at airport prices, but with no lineup, free refills, and the ability to drink out of a regular mug (at least pre-COVID, anyway).

    I also learned some time ago (and oddly never got around to it, I was too busy with mojito antics... lol) that you can, indeed bring your own beverage of 100+ ml past TSA, provided that it's frozen solid: https://thepointsguy.com/news/frozen-drinks-through-security/

    The cold-brews I've been making at home lately with Fiji water have ruined me for most other forms of non-hot coffee, so the next time I fly I'm considering freezing a bottle of it before I head to the airport, getting it past security, and then taking some measure to melt it back to liquid form once I'm inside.

    Anyway, the FFEJRY has his coffee, so enough chatter on the subject... let's get to Vegas!!! :)

    Within reach!

    Flight was a little bumpy. Had a little nap. Coffee kept me up and too excited.

    But ready to rock and roll!

    Get my entrance music ready!

    Already off the plane. I don't remember it being this fast before. Literally went straight to the gate. Door opened in no time.
