This is about how I spent my 7 hours waiting after 5 hrs flight and before 11 hrs flight back home! and suffering Flu.. Swine?!
My -supposed to be- 6.5 hrs flight from Seattle to NY took 5.5 hrs only.. so instead of having 6 hours to waste at the airport waiting for my Amman flight, I had around 7 hrs!
Whatever you do there, and you do have many things to do, time still can pass slowly.. I went thought airtrain to my terminal and sat there.. ate and played some games and still one hour passed only.. listened to music while checking people around.. and still have so much time to waste.. Whats amazing with RJ, is I couldnt get my Amman boarding pass from Seattle, which sux. the woman at Seattle said this is how RJ works.. (no wonder) but, what was improved is that after I get my boarding pass at JFK, I dont have to stamp it from an RJ desk. I dont know why they used to do that but its not anymore.. way to go RJ!
So after all this and others, it’s still not 6 pm, which is the time they open for RJ checking in, I kept walking and then went to RJ sales desk to ask them where I can get the tax I paid in USA which I should since im not a US citizen. they said that NY State doesnt give tax back! WT..! :S they were a good amount, since i got two laptops and couple of other stuff! anyway.. after checking in at the cute guy’s desk, I went to my gate area, was looking around in shops to find something interesting when I saw a book “The Secret” which my friend recommended it but never read it.. so I got the book, “I heart NY Taffy” and gum.. AND TISSUES.. I have a FLU 😥
I woke up this morning with sore throat but thought maybe i didnt sleep well or something but then my body aches and runny nose! oh I prayed its not the swine flu! but anyway, i had to wait.. got my blanket and ipod and tried to sleep a little but I couldnt because of that baby kept screaming like crazy! tried to read a little of that book which seemed interesting but then i couldnt because of that flu symptoms i started to have.. I dont know how time flied (it didnt) to the boarding time.. THANK GOD! got in the plane and again, THANK GOD, no one beside me! which made me think for a minute.. its always full from Amman to NY but half empty from NY to Amman.. where did people go? funny isnt it? so I got two pillows and my blanket and slept.. they wake me up at the dinner and breakfast time and thats it.. the rest of the time i was sleeping and suffering fever and aches everywhere in my body.. that sucks a big time..
flight took around 10 hours to get Amman to find doctors at the gate waiting but what did they do? nothing i guess.. I dont remember, I had fever and aches and was sleepy.. I wanted to tell the doctor that I have Flu Symptoms but was too tired to do so and wanted to get home asap..
about the flu, next day it got worse and went to dr who said that it doesnt look like swine flu but you need to stay home.. today i got better, el 7amdellah!
