Mitt Romney in Person



Just sat on a US Airways flight to LGA from PIT with Mitt Romney and his aide next to me.

Guess he's flying commercial to experience the common man's struggles and boy did he get to experience it all its glory, it was a horrible flight thanks to thunderstorms and poor queue management by US Airways.

Scheduled boarding: 3:50 PM
Actual Boarding: 4:10 PM
Scheduled Departure: 4:20 PM
De-planing: 5:00 PM
Scheduled arrival: 5:48 PM
Re-boarding: 6:00 PM
Sitting at gate: 6:00 PM - 6:30 PM
Sitting on tarmac: 6:30 PM - 7:00 PM
Actual Departure: 7:00 PM
Circling LGA: 8:20 - 8:40 PM
Landing: 8:40 PM
Waiting on tarmac at LGA: 8:40 PM - 9:00 PM
Deplaning: 9:00 PM
Baggage: 9:30 PM

Mitt Romney was very graceful throughout the whole trip, we had a nice chat about his iPad, Apple, Steve Jobs' health, airlines' recent baggage and snack policies, and how our pilot had a window to take off but didn't and we'd be very late as a result, and that I was probably going to miss my midterm exam.
