Yesterday may have been my worst day of travel ever, at least in terms of what went wrong. Still, it wasn't all that bad. After arriving in Orlando, we went to pick up the rental car we'd reserved with Advantage.
Shortly after passing through the security checkpoint at Sky Harbor, just before 5:00 am, we saw the departure monitor showing our flight to Charlotte would be delayed by 45 minutes. It turns out the first officer for the flight hadn't shown up for work for some reason, so 45 minutes was just an estimate. In any event, we'd definitely miss our connection in Charlotte.
