You know all those times when you wish you had a few more hours in the day. Hours that you fantasied as being productive? A day in which you would amaze everyone and finish your to-do list!
Well, I will suggest that getting effectively a 33 hour day (nine hours of time zone change + 10 1/2 hours of flight + four hours of layover + two more flights – none of this includes getting up on Sunday to pack, go to the airport, hangout in the United Lounge) – is not all it is cracked up to be.
SAS is a lovely airline with great food and firm seats. If there had been a plethora of extra blankets I might have wanted 4-5 for padding. George slept for a few hours on the plane. I gave up and read. He also dozed in the Copenhagen SAS Lounge and on both of our connecting flights.
Did I mention that we were traveling on two unrelated reservations? I had that fare on SAS from last January that I couldn’t use, so converted it for this trip. But SAS doesn’t fly to Bremen meaning we had to get out luggage, then go check in with Lufthansa for the last two flights (one hour, ~ 45 minutes).
The hotel is right across the street from the airport and there are tram lines in front, so figuring out the connections to Bremerhaven tomorrow shouldn’t be that hard.
