Airline Strike

My boss was concerned that my flight might be cancelled because of an airline pilot strike in Atlanta (or something like that). I used the handy Delta Air Lines flight-lookup thingamajiggy and was told that flight 1886 is a-ok. And I learned that I’ll be on a Lockheed TriStar L1011-1. My boss, who is also a pilot, tells me that this is a huge plane. A monstrous plane. A great, big plane. Plus, I get dinner and a movie! (I hope it’s not Bounce.)
