In front of us in line was a family of four that were traveling to Egypt. They hadn’t been there for 10 years and were really looking forward to their trip. They had 3 rolling luggage carts, each carrying 3 very large suitcases. Then each one of them had a rolling carry-on suitcase and a backpack. It was a mountain of luggage and looked like it would take a long time for them to check in! I asked them if they were going to be gone long, the wife said 2 weeks! We just couldn’t imagine what they would have in all that luggage, maybe gifts for family or something.
Melissa finally made it up to the check-in counter to get her boarding passes. One of the British Airways customer service people had told her that she didn’t need to worry, she had plenty of time.
