Cali Update 1

Day one of my trip to Cali isn’t even over and it’s already been a pretty interesting trip. I met up with the BC crew at Pearson International and we proceeded to check in to the first leg of my flight (the second leg of theirs) to Miami International. This flight went off without a hitch, until we were about 10m from the ground in Miami, the engines began to road and we accelerated. Next thing you knew we were back in the air, being told the pilots had to execute a ‘Go Around’ because there was another aircraft occupying the runway. Fast forward a few hours of sitting in the Miami airport waiting to catch the next flight to Cali. Again we’re back on the plane, this time accompanied by all the athletes who began their trip in Los Angeles this morning. I just settle into my seat, and start eating the complimentary meal (Yes, an airline finally gave us some free food!), when the stewards make an announcement on the PA system asking if there are any doctors available to help out. Uh oh….After playing around with some oxygen masks apparently they decided to make an emergency landing. Here I am now, in Montego Bay, Jamaica maaannnn. The sick passenger is now off the plane, but we’ve been told ‘we have to wait for a flight plan, aircraft inspection (since we landed overweight) and refueling before we can take off again’. We’ve been on the ground for at least 45 minutes now, and the only inspection I saw out the window was some lady with a flashlight walking up and down the plane once. “Lets see… 1 wing… 2 wings… alright, good. Inspection complete,” as she gives herself a pat on the back for a job well done. Good stuff. I feel safe now. And it seems like they are having some difficulty with this ‘fight plan’. Hows this sound.. go fast, fly south, continue until we reach Cali. Finally, the refueling truck has showed up so hopefully we’ll be back in the air shortly. Thats all for now. I’m going to try my best to give you a few updates this next week from Colombia, so keep tuned!
