Breakfast started at 0530, the buses left the hotel at 0630 for our hour + ride to the airport. Loaded up the charter and took off ~ 0830 which brought us into Guatemala City at 0930 for our 1325 flight. There are a few in the group disgruntled about having to hang out for hours. Me? I was happy to have plenty of time to retrieve my luggage, walk from the local terminal to the International Terminal, check-in. Then there was security, immigration and then finding the Copa Lounge which was wayyyy wayyy at the end of the terminal.
From there it was more waiting.
Flight to Houston where I found, much to my surprise that using the Mobile Passport App (which now doesn’t want to use data but has to be on wifi) got me immediately through immigration without having to stand in line for my previous experience of two and a half hours.
Flight back to SFO wasn’t an issue. Getting home could have been worse.
It is nice to sleep in my own bed….
