Departure Bahías de Huatulco International Airport
My flights from Halifax to Huatulco had been upgraded to Business Class. I couldn’t believe my luck, that again, I’d been upgraded to Business Class for my flights from Huatulco to Halifax! This would make my long stretch of travel ahead much more comfortable!!!
Next stop, Mexico City!
Mexico City – Aeropuerto Internacional Benito Juárez
I had access to the Business Class Lounge, where I would gratefully spend the next nine hours waiting to board my flight to Montreal! Here, I had access to free everything – food, drink and high speed internet!
My flight was delayed, so I was first in line in Business Class Zone 1 to get on the plane! Exhausted and feeling slightly delirious, I was done with being in the airport and ready to be home!!
Montreal to Halifax – Snowstorm in Halifax
Mid-flight from Montreal to Halifax, the plane turned back to Montreal, as the pilot announced the Halifax Stanfield International Airport was shut down from a snowstorm. GREAT! We turned around, landed in Montreal, then as we started to unbuckle the pilot announced the Halifax airport had reopened! Of course, with all the passengers checking their phone for Halifax’s airport conditions, it was discovered a plane had slid off the runway there. GREAT! But, we were flying back to Halifax anyway!
The plane landed safely in Halifax during the snowstorm. Thank you West Jet pilots! <3
My neighbor Eric, who was to pick me up at the airport, was not able to drive because he was snowed in, in Upper Vaughn. I was stuck, but lucky to get the LAST room at the airport’s ALT Hotel for the night!!
I was on Nova Scotian soil. That’s all that mattered!
And that’s a wrap of Michael and I’s trip to Huatulco, Oaxaca, Mexico!
