This morning I finished packing my bag and took the very short walk to the train station. The train costs 8.8€ from the Brussels North station to the airport (there is a charge to access the platform at the airport included and the ticket needs to be scanned to exit the station). The train only took 11 minutes or so. It was very foggy, so I didn’t really get to see anything.
My flight was scheduled for 10:35 AM and I arrived at 7:35 AM. It didn’t take very long to check in or go through security and immigration.
I was lucky to still have an empty seat next to me for the flight to Atlanta from Brussels. I spent the time editing photos – almost all 9 hours to edit photos I took the first 3 hours of my trip in Luzern, Switzerland. It will be a while until I get to go through all of the photos.
The situation in Atlanta was not very good. There was a long queue for security after re-checking my bags. I eventually got through and took the train to the B terminal for my flight. I had an exit row seat with no seat in front of me, however I was almost right next to the turbofan engine…. It was so loud I may not be able to hear for a week. The plane was one of the historic “Mad Dog” MD88’s that Delta and American still fly (at least for now).
