Melanie came and picked us up this morning around 9:30. We climbed in her car and were chauffeured to the airport. It turns out the British Airways is operated by American Airlines. We flew first to Dallas and changed planes there. Our seats were all together, though the aisle separated Linda and I. In addition to refreshments, we were served dinner and breakfast during our transatlantic flight. Each of us had individual screens, movies, games, and other technology for our disposal. This helped pass the time during our 10-hour flight. The airplane we took across the Atlantic was large and convenient. We traveled 8000 miles at the speed of sound to our destination.
