Project 365 #363: 291209 Delayed Arrival
Ah, my favourite place - I'm back in Manchester Airport again!
I shouldn't complain - the journey was trouble free and the arrivals area in Terminal 1 is absolutely superb.
We've got visiting Finns! Laura's Mum and Sister are over for New Year. Both surprisingly and annoyingly, the flight was delayed. It left Helsinki Vantaa 45 minutes late and arrived in Manchester 34 minutes late. This was apparently something to do with a big delay on transfer luggage. There seemed to be a lot of Chinese people on the flight (not unusual once you understand the context) so I'm sure some of it was theirs.
The real kicker...the roads were quieter than I thought and the baggage reclaim took a little longer than I thought. This meant that I was parked for 67 minutes. In Manchester Airport speak that translates to a ring stinging six quid! I could park in Liverpool One for less than that!
Ah well...easier on the way back. :) And yikes...by the time they go home I'll have finished this 365! :D
