US 4165 LGA-ROA 8:19 am-10:39 am Dash 8-100 Seat 4C Exit
What a way to end my US Airways flying! We boarded only 15 minutes before departure–and quickly–as there were only 17 passengers (of 37 seats). Luckily I had no seatmate again. During boarding, a passenger called theto her row to remove a dirty diaper from her seat area! The flight attendant had to retrieve a plastic bag to pick it up and remove it! Yuck!
We pushed back at 8:20 am and were airborne by 8:34 am. The flight attendant made an announcement that adult beverages and Power Nap Sacks were available for $7. I decided to have a Bloody and a Nap Sack, a souvenir of my last flight. Well, catering did not provide any Nap Sacks–the flight attendant said she always asks for them and never gets them–then she gave me a full cup of tomato juice w/ice and vodka mini, after inquiring, “What liquor goes in a Bloody Mary?” I thought perhaps she was out of Bloody Mary mix, until she came back later and apologized for giving me the wrong mixer.
On top of that, the flight attendant, nor the pilots or other passengers, had any change for my $20. She also did not have a handheld device for credit cards, since Piedmont has not yet been provided with them, nor snacks to sell. So she offered to sell me two more Bloodies TO GO, so I’d owe her $21, which I had. At this point, I felt so badly for her that I gave her the $21 and packed up my two minis and can of Mr and Mrs T.
But I can’t complain, right, because we arrived at ROA early at.
