Surprisingly this nearly 14 hour flight went by pretty quickly. I watched some reruns of the same TV shows I saw on the in bound. I ate a pretty average meal and a couple glasses of wine. The best part, wine is free in economy to/from Asia on United, but they only serve you one bottle at a time. The gentlemen two rows in front of me ordered two cans of beer, but Carol (my second favorite stew on the flight) said he could have one. He was rude and demanded two. She was stern and said "From what I can smell, you've already had several on the ground. I will not serve you more alcohol". Fantastic! She comes for my drink order and I of course order two bottles of wine...to which she rolls her eyes and drops of three bottles of red. Love her.
We land early and make I make it to Customers and Border Patrol to find that I am in the heart of International Arrivals. It seems that every flag carrier in the Northern Hemisphere has just landed and every passenger is in front of me. I waited just under two hours to make it through the line and to the cab stand.
I am home.
