Well, seems like i’m sort of on a bad luck streak recently…
 
Last week, I was scheduled to fly from TPE-Anchorage-Chicago-Anchorae-Taipei… then on the afternoon of my departure (it was a 3AM flight)… they changed to Chicago-Seattle-Anchorage… Which was ok, more money for me… but then .. in Chicago, the ground ppl madea big booboo, they were short handed and couldn’t get the cargo loaded in time, so we were delayed for 3-4 hours… and since it was only a two-men crew, flying from Seattle to Anchorage was not possibe since it will exceed our duty time… so we had to stay in Seattle for 10 hours, the minimum rest time needed to continue our flight…
 
this week, I was schedule for the same flight again… reporting in songshan at 1240am, got to the airport at 130am, and then…  the rear maindeck cargo door seal was loose, so we had to wait for them to fix it… 2 hours later, we were informed to change aircraft cuz it would take another hour or two to get it fixed.. so around 430, we changed to another plane, and started cargo loading… around 6… Dynasty 5118, the flight that took our orginal plane took off… and we are still on the ground… finaly we took off at 7:10am… 4 hour delay….  and after we landed… my schedule changed from flyin to chicago, to  flying to miami-san francisco, to flying to NY… so … I guess…. NYC, here I come!!!
 
No more changes please… since my next month schedule will give me 9 days in TPE during CNY!!!
 
here are some photos…

Since we covered in snow, we need to de-ice… You don’t get to see this everyday~
