Day 15

Sunday after our trip to Disneyland, we tried to fly home standby through Delta Airlines at LAX. Long story short, the flights we waited for were oversold, and over booked, and they ended up asking passengers to volunteer to leave a flight in exchange for a voucher for a free flight. Good for them. Bad for us.

All in all, we ended up being bumped from 5 flights Sunday, and spending a total of 11 hours at LAX, before finally giving up, and realizing our chances of flying standby were better on a 6:15a Monday morning flight (which we made thankfully, being the last 2 to make it on the flight).

This photo was taken in a hallway to the Delta terminal in LAX after we decided to give up for the day and get a hotel room close to the airport for a few hours of sleep before trying it all over again. I think Shara said it best when she said, "I've never been defeated by an airport, until now."
