Close but no cigar. Returning from Pittsburgh last Friday evening, sitting in 5C. First row behind the first class folks. I can smell their food...... Sigh.
This must be one of the most expensive cities you can fly to from Houston. Cheapest fair was over $1,000. Not a single empty seat however.
As it turns out, Jon was hanging out in front of gate C25 and I deplaned at gate C36. I probably walked (no pun!) passed right by him Friday night as Jon waited or was on board for his flight to Philly.
