Orange County September 2008: Departing Los Angeles International, Los Angeles, CA (LAX) for Houtston-Intercontinental, Houston, TX (IAH)

10SEP08 Los Angeles International, Los Angeles CA (LAX)

It was 4:03p, when we pulled into LAX. In about two minutes, we made it to the Tom Bradley International Terminal and dropped off the guys who were going to Delhi.

At 4:13p, I arrived at Terminal 6 for Continental and Delta and disembarked. Great, I can make the 4:50p after all. I re-printed my boarding pass and headed to the TSA, showed my ID and went upstairs. The TSA agents up there gave me a hard time and had myself and another guy waiting to be searched. It was just stupid. The guy kept calling someone on the radio who eventually came over and told him to let us clear as we had no issues.

I then made my way to the gate and asked the agent to change me to the earlier flight which she did without any issues; I even got a window seat with the middle empty.

I looked out the window and saw aircraft N17105, a Boeing 757-200 with winglets pushing back from the gate. I also noticed someone’s name on the nose; “Jay Putsell,” I wonder who is that?

Boarding soon started, but was halted soon after as the jetway was backed up. In about three minutes it restarted and I made my way in.
