Although I've never fallen in love at the airport, I once had a very interesting encounter when I was in my early twenties. I was flying from Missouri to Hawaii and had a stopover of about four hours in Los Angeles. I had to change planes and walk quite a long way to get to the gate where I would be catching the plane to Honolulu. As I reached the gate, I realized I had forgotten my carry-on bag on the previous airplane. I immediately panicked because my boarding pass for the next flight was in that bag. I quickly turned and headed back towards the gate I'd just left.
After another long walk, I finally arrived to discover the plane had already reloaded and left to go back to Missouri. I was nearly in tears as I talked to the ticket counter lady at the gate. She smiled and said that someone on my flight had already found my bag and would meet me at the gate to Honolulu. Relieved and exhausted, I took the long trek back to my departure gate again. I glanced at my watch and realized I was actually running out of stopover time. I picked up my pace and arrived just as the plane was boarding. As I approached the ticket counter, I saw one of my best friends from elementary school standing there, holding my carry-on bag. I hadn't seen her in years and could hardly believe my eyes! It turns out, she was several rows behind me on the flight from Missouri and was on her way to Hawaii as well! Do you have any airport stories to tell?
