For a second time in one trip, I'm missing a connection and being overnighted. However, this time I was flying WestJet (rather than terrible Air Canada) and they handled the situation better (and this time it was something that needed repairing on the plane, rather than human error). They gave me two options: a.) fly to Edmonton and be overnighted there; b.) pull my luggage off the plane and stay overnight in Regina.
When forced to choose between Regina and Edmonton, I always choose Regina. Also, when forced to choose between an airport hotel (where it will probably take a million years to get me to the hotel, and then I'll have a bad sleep, etc.) and sleeping in my childhood bedroom, I will always choose my childhood bedroom.
Sorry, Edmonton. I just don't love you that much.
So, the new plan is for me to fly out from here tomorrow morning at 6:30, take a direct flight and land in Victoria at 8:30am.
(Poor Christopher. He was so excited to pick me up from the airport tonight.)
