StuckatTheAirport.com subscriber Katie Jackson got to spend the 4th of July holiday with her family in Montana. She didn’t send in any “Souvenir Sunday” snapshots, but she did send in a “my day in airports” report:
The first airport, LWT (Lewistown Municipal Airport, Montana) is my hometown airport and was the most entertaining. I think they have four seats in their airport & the process took so long that my grandpa who was dropping me off fell asleep in one.
As the only passenger for the morning (seriously—I was the only one on a 19-seater plane) I had three security/TSA’s devoted to scanning my luggage and patting me down. …The fact that the head TSA had worked for my parents for twenty years didn’t get me past security with a cup of coffee. They are that strict!
I can’t complain about the person sitting next to me as there were none. Nor can I complain about being stuck in a middle or aisle seat as they were all window seats. I could hear the pilots joking about IFR (stands for “I Follow River/Road)—but they got me to Billings (BIL) safely so I can’t complain about that either.
The airport itself was nice although I think it’s a crime to sell things like HoneyBuns in vending machines. I ended the day in LGA—[New York’s LaGuardia Airport] but was not half as amused as I was starting it in LWT.
