Passenger: I sure hope not.
Twenty minutes later the copilot makes an announcement that a passenger has questioned the sobriety of the Captain. Yes. I'm not kidding. This means an investigation must be done which may take upwards to an hour. If they find reason to uphold the passenger's complaint, three hours until we get a new flight crew. Not the best way to start New Orleans.
Fortunately, all turned out well and we got underway. I arrived in New Orleans and met up with Bill before heading to the apartment where Maria and Rich were already waiting for us. We headed over the Convention Center to pick up our packets and then headed to lunch.
It was a good first day. We'll see a bit more of the city tomorrow and then it's race day on Sunday.
