You're not going to believe it

Doug's flight was delayed again. He was supposed to leave Providence, RI at 6:30 this morning, but as of yet, the flight crew isn't available -- they got in late last night. So now he's on a different flight, heading first to Cleveland, changing planes and heading to Houston, then changing again and heading to Austin. But here's the deal. Checking his new flights I noticed that his flight from Cleveland to Houston is already delayed 33 minutes. This means as of right now, he has 13 minutes to catch his connecting flight, assuming his plane isn't delayed any more.

Needless to say, Doug is extremely exhausted. He actually has a good rant about airlines and on-time claims, and how they run their business, but I will leave that to him. It's just is flight up there was delayed and now he can't seem to get home. All I know is that our goodwill towards Continental is quickly diminishing. We were thinking about changing our credit card frequent flyer miles from American to Continental, but now we have to think long and hard about it.

Doug's plane from Cleveland left on time. It looks like he'll make his connection in Houston and be home at 4:30.
