We landed at Philadelphia International at 2232 Eastern. It took us about 8 minutes to taxi to our gate but we made pretty good time. Interestingly enough American has a policy that allows you to turn on your cellphones as soon as you've landed and started taxing, which is how I am writing this update in almost real-time.
I'm in row 27, the very back row of the plane. Its a good thing I am not in a hurry to get off the plane because this flight was booxed solid, and everyone wants to get off before I do. They just announced that I can pick up my checked luggage from carosel 3. I'm currently debating if I should get my luggage and then find my rental counter or if I should go there and get my keys first before trying to hunt down my baggage. The problem with having professional-grade luggage (Samsonite) is that it looks like the luggage that everyone else has, so I probably should go to the baggage claim first and make sure that nobody walks away with my clothing.....
Once I get those affairs in order I need to see if Doug's flight is going to arrive sometime this century, or what. The last time I spoke to him the outlook sounded pretty bleak. Good thing for him I'm a patient man, or he'd be out a ride, and nothing sucks more than being marooned in an airport. Well, maybe Electrolux sucks more, but i've never owned one so I can't say for certain.
