The BART ride was uneventful, the train was full of passengers with their luggage. You could tell they were preparing themselves mentally for the long lines both at the check-in counter and in the dreaded TSA area. Then the rush to the sky train was on. It was if the gates had opened at the Kentucky Derby track. I too joined the rush until one of my bags got hung up at the narrow escalator.
Once I settled that problem, I made my way to the sky cap outside thus bypassing the line of people waiting at check in. Within 2 minutes I was passing thru the TSA pre-check line. So from leaving the BART train to walking thru the Delta Sky Lounge doors, it took all of 6 minutes. Here I wait till boarding at 8:40.
Once again, if I had been living in the moment and not worried about what could happen, I wouldn’t be sitting for two and a half hours. Oh I don’t mind, I enjoy watching the planes land and take off. This too will pass
