Apparently, there are people in the world unlike myself. People who, when faced with the sad knowledge that they have to go to the airport, do not spiral into a panic. People who do not have crippling I’m-going-to-miss-my-flight-and-also-every-other-flight-I-ever-take anxiety.
A lot of these people think that it’s silly to get to the airport two hours early for a domestic flight and three hours early for an international. I am not one of those people, and for this reason, I have never been late to a flight. There’s always plenty of time on my side. Get there early.
(OK, look, in the interest of journalistic integrity, I did miss a flight once, but I slept through my alarm and woke up in my bed about five hours after I was supposed to land. So, it’s less that was “late” to the flight, and more that I “didn’t attend the flight at all.”)
