At 3:30am, I left my hotel in Austin, Tx, to venture to the airport for my flight to New Orleans. Upon reaching the airport, I discovered it was closed. The ticket desks were closed. The security check-ins were closed. The shops and restaurants were closed. Needless to say, I was more than a little annoyed.
Luckily, the ticket counter and security opened up at 4am; and, I was pretty much first in line for both. I thought things were looking up. I was wrong.
