The flight from Manchester to CLE was interesting, inasmuch as the only times I've flown in planes smaller than that Embraer 145, I was wearing a headset and sitting in the right seat.
The layover in Cleveland is of the precise length to provoke misery: Not quite two hours. Long enough to feel like forever, but not long enough to make it worth going in and out of security to look up any of the peeps I know on the North Coast.
In the meantime, I sit here in the Gordon Biersch in the secure zone, looking out over the tarmac where the Saab 340 and Dash-8 puddlejumpers are being serviced and loaded via airstairs, No such luck for me though: The CLE-IND leg will be on another Embraer 145, which is exactly like a Gulfstream 550 with three or four times the seats it should have.
And yet, hey... it's still sitting in a chair... in the sky.
