Busy Airport

In all the years I’ve been flying out of Charlottetown, I’ve never seen it as busy at 6:00 a.m. as it is today. There are 3 flights departing within an hour of each other, and, from the looks of it, they’re all full.

I ignored the advice to show up 2 hours in advance as absurd (midwinter I’ve seen as few as a half dozen people in the waiting room). After all, what’s the point of living 10 minutes from the airport.

Most everyone else seems to have heeded the advice. And so there was no security line, and I went from cab to gate in 4 minutes.
