Travel: DC

Update: Airport Tally - ORD - CLT - EYW - BOS - LGA - CMH - DCA - (PHL)
M back in DC before heading back to Chicago later on tonight. It has been a wild ride and I've slept in a total of 3.5 airports. I now consider airports to be as good as a free hotel, if you can find a warm clean spot.

I've done all sorts of weather from the 4 inches of snow in Boston to the 75 degree weather in KW.

As I mentioned in a previous post, I think Boston's airport has the seats most meant to accommodate overnight guests. Philly has hospitality down pat, they give you a pillow, blanket, some crackers and water. Charlotte is a cold mess, chairs are hard and they turn the heat down until I swear it is colder inside than outside. The Key West airport was a hoot, so small you check in and go through security simultaneously. They can only check in one plane at a time which is hilarious. They have no waiting room ticket-side so you wait outside or at the beach if it's going to be more than 20 minutes.

i'll have to remember that about boston... and key west... good thing it is warm there, can you imagine if you had to wait in the cold for them to just let you check in?!
