We got up at 9:30 Saturday morning and had to repack suitcases since mine was 52 pounds. We worked that out, crammed all our stuff in the car, and headed to FLL. The car dropoff was quick, and the entire thing cost a total of $103 since I’d redeemed points for most of it. We hopped on the shuttle to terminal two, dealt with crappy service at both check-in and security (where my mother tried to carry through three bags of toiletries), and finally got to our gate.
We picked up coffee and bagels and then ended up at the airport bar for a morning beer. Boarding was quick and we had a 2-seat row to ourselves, so that was good. And as a bonus, we had a layover at CVG, which is in northern Kentucky!
We got there just in time for lunch, so I had a delicious vegetarian ‘cheesesteak’, and Matt got chili, as you do in Cincinnati. Plus Andy Dalton made it, I think.
The rest of our travels were uneventful, and we managed to get the in-laws and all our souvenirs home in one piece!
