Don’t you just hate getting the go around?
That’s right — the ‘go around.’
My flight from Chicago got one from air traffic control as we neared LaGuardia tonight.
As we appeared to leave the city, he explained that we received the ‘go around’ order because an aircraft was taking off on the same runway.
So we entered a holding pattern and landed about 20 minutes later.
Obviously we were very lucky, and I doubt anyone on the plane minded the slight delay.
But I’ll miss my stomach.
