Finally on a plane

After the fiasco of the train I went back to the airport, confirmed the 6:15 flight, got a room at a hotel with a shuttle, missed the shuttle finding the last friendly faces at the airport and lapsed into hysterical laughter when the taxi driver took us to the 'closest' hotel Mercure who said 'we're not the hotel Mercure; go back to the airport hotel Mercure...' Still, the red mullet and dark beer were nice, once the waitress came back to take my forgotten order the second time!
Air Berlin is playing Chris Rhea and charging for breakfast. I expect Stansted to be affected by some freak event when I arrive there, just to keep up the score.
