Journey to Muscat: Morning Flight to New York
B ecause the flight from Minneapolis arrived at approximately 11:00 in the evening — and because the morning flight to New York was scheduled to depart at 6:00 — it really did not make much sense to me to grab a hotel room for what at most would be a stay of five hours or so; so I decided to work on my laptop computer at Washington Dulles International Airport through the night.
The Embraer ERJ-145 (A) aircraft had no premium class cabin; and I was seated on the left side of the aircraft with the single seats — so I had both an aisle and a window seat. There were only 26 passengers on this aircraft, which can seat 50 people.
The interior of the aircraft appeared to be in rough shape:
It was dark throughout the short flight of less than an hour in duration; but the sun was trying to peak through the clouds as it was rising over the horizon…
…and I started to see glimpses of my original home: Brooklyn.
The flight was uneventful; and all that was served was coffee, which I politely refused — and thus ended the first leg of my journey to Muscat…
