Already late for our agreed upon meeting time I knocked on Adam’s door. I was feeling better and ready to fly off to the land of the Bangles, camel, sand and pyramids. I gathered up the souvenirs I displayed throughout my hotel room.
The flight prep in Israel was incredible. I’ve flown hundreds of segments including one flight from Hong Kong to Los Angeles Sept. 14th 2001; I have never experienced as thorough a search process.
At the airport gates we were stopped for questioning then ushered through a checkpoint at the airport entrance. Of course they had no record of our reservation at the Sinai Air check in counter and wouldn’t be able to sell us a ticket…that would be too easy. We purchased a ticket from El Al Airlines to board a Sinai Air flight chartered on Egypt Air. The fun began when we made our way back to the line at the Sinai Air check-in counter.
