Day 8 : Saturday 10th September 2005

Homeward bound

After my final breakfast in the Club, I had a couple of hours to kill before I had to head to the airport, so I headed down to Union Square and had a look round an art market that had set up there. Unfortunately for me the weather was utterly gorgeous this morning, not a cloud in the sky. How typical!

After wondering around a bit, coming back to the hotel, packing and checking out, I was soon in a cab heading for the airport. When I arrived, I was keen to try and get on an earlier flight than the one I had booked and this didn't seem to be a problem and I got waitlisted for the earlier flight. Compare and contrast to BA, where this would emphatically never happen, unless on a fully flexible ticket!

UA886 San Francisco (SFO) - Los Angeles (LAX)

BA282 Los Angeles Intl (LAX) - London Heathrow (LHR)

So that was it, a great week away in California. I had not really seen much of LA, but had had plenty of time to check out San Francisco and was thoroughly impressed with the place. Certainly those who describe it as one of their favourite cities are definitely onto something. I wouldn't go that far yet, but I'm sure it won't be long before I'm back!
