Farewell to Thai's Airbus 345: Los Angeles to Austin


There were no lines at the United premier check-in counters at LAX. I was done with check-in in about 5 minutes before approaching a relatively long security line. I was allowed to use the premium lines which was much shorter thanks to my Star Gold status and I was in United Club a quick 15 minutes after I arrived at LAX. 

As usual, I caught on email and coffee in the lounge. I also manage to snag a free upgrade to Economy Plus in lounge by just asking the ticketing agents working in the lounge. Yay to more leg room.

My flight today was operated by a CRJ-700 – not the most exciting plane to be on. It was an uneventful ~3 hour flight to Austin.  My luggage was already waiting for me when I got to the baggage claim area. I was hoping to head straight to work but I got stuck waiting for about 20 minute for my rental car from Hertyz to be read. They had to clean it and send it from another lot.
