    • 390 Words
    • 2 Pages

    When something unexpected to me, was when me, my dad, and uncle Steve weren’t allowed on the plane. I have no idea why we weren’t allowed on the plane, when the plane was sitting right in front of us and it wasn’t leaving for 10 minutes. The airport service worker said that we would have to get on the next flight to Denver in three hours. We couldn’t go back to Washington, D.C. because the airport was 30 minutes out of the city, and we didn’t want to be stuck in D.C for another couple hours. While sitting at the airport waiting for our next flight, we walked around and looked at the shops that they had in there. Sitting at the airport for three hours was long and tiring. After waiting, we got on the plane. We didn’t get to Denver till almost 8, and when we got there, we rushed to the gate, because we had about 15 minutes to get there before they would take off.

Although that was the longest day ever, I had fun seeing the capital of the U.S.…

    • 4 Pages

    Small domestic airports and airstrips in distant locations have led to the major airlines charging high prices for their passenger tickets. Lokichogio Airport is a great example. Located in the northern part of Kenya where the Sudan type of desert environment is seen creeping into Kenya, may not be the ideal place to have an airport. Honestly, one can only find the natives taking such trips to that region due to the fact that they have family in Turkana County. The influence of corruption in…

    When I walk into an airport the incessant trivial talk hits my ears as the passengers prepare for their journey. There – the sounds of excitement, anxiety, joy and distraction all mingle and become a blur; which becomes my focus. From what I have felt, sometimes a simple trip to the airport often reveals many different thoughts and feelings. A sea of people scattered in the arrivals and departures with an ambivalent cloud above them. It’s the symphony of a moment to stand still and watch as the…
