Flight Log of American Airlines Flight 3365 from Syracuse to Chicago O’Hare on August 11th, 2016
The month-long Cornell program finally came to an end, as the wonderful lady driver of our shuttle dropped us off roughly three hours before departure. Amazingly, the American Airlines Check-in Counters were open, although we waited for like five minutes before two agents appeared.
Since Syracuse Hancock Airport was a modestly-sized
regional international airport (hell they got Air Canada Services to/from Toronto), there weren’t many interesting planes to spot. So after securities, I killed time, by writing homework essays on my laptop.

Then it’s boarding time,
Due to the limited visibility of that day, I adjusted clarity of most photos.
I picked a left-hand side seat because
it’s both window and aisle it has better chance of seeing the Niagara Falls. Although I have visited it at the beginning of the program, but I sure know it would look differently from the sky. But it seemed that neither side would get a view of it, as we flew right above the falls.
Also, without any reference to racial prejudice, the white lady on this flight was a lot better than the black nanny a month ago on the flight to Syracuse, in both demeanor and service attitude. At least, this lady didn’t cool herself with safety card during safety demonstration.
We landed on runway 27R, which meant we have an extra 10 minutes of O’Hare Airport tour before we reached our gate, and that’s done by taxiing at 50 km/h. I know Chinese airports would never allow that speed, because of both government regulation and poor management.
Flight AA187 back to Beijing will be on the next post.
