Most airlines tell you to arrive at the airport 2 hours prior to departure and for many airports, that is sound advice. As for our airport here in Billings, I had gotten a little spoiled - showing up only 45 minutes before departure and still spending 30 minutes of that waiting at the gate.

What I believe were a pair of Air Force B1 or B1B bombers conducted Touch and Go's at Billings Logan International Airport this afternoon. One of the great things about broadcasting from the top of the Crowne Plaza in downtown Billings is that we get the most amazing view of the action...
For years now the airlines private lounges always seemed to me to be a hidden society where weary travelers get waited on hand and foot. For $450 per year the Delta Sky Club, according to their website offers:
