Jack is back and fast asleep. Likely this post will be replaced by one from him when he wakes up. But, for now a fine executive summary:
|United 777-200 taxiing out at Guam|
The trip back went well, the biggest downside was he misses his Thomas family. The B777 lifted off from Guam on schedule at 0635L, which meant an 0400 wakeup! But, the best part was he was onboard!
The leg to Honolulu was unremarkable, he had an aisle seat in Premium Economy and sat next to a family from Guam going to Honolulu for a holiday. There was a fairly short 3+12 layover which involved a ride on the Wiki Wiki bus in Honolulu. The flight left Honolulu at 2108L with a full bird, but with Jack on it! The big bird that used to have a golden tail arrived in Los Angeles at 0518L. He missed the first commuter from LAX to San Diego, but made the second one.

The flight from LAX to SAN is only 0+41 airborne, so we needed to leave when he boarded to get to the airport on time!

Thank you to United Airlines for making the trip possible. Thanks to all of you who followed Jack and prayed for his safe return. Thank you in particular to the Thomas family, specially Kurt and Mary, who made his trip so special.
Hap, Dru and Jack
