Did you ever wake up in the wrong city?

And not really care?

I nodded off on my SEA-ATL flight today. I heard the pilot announce our initial approach into Atlanta and nodded off again. Next thing I know, they pilot is announcing that we are on final approach to Huntsville, AL.

Apparently, storms shut down the Atlanta airport for more than an hour and we didn't have enough fuel to circle forever, so we landed in Hunstville, fuel-ed up, and waited for the Atlanta airport to reopen so we could finish our flight.

We got into Atlanta about 2.5 hours late.

I woke up in the wrong city, shrugged my shoulders, and went back to sleep. I figured we'd get where we were going eventually.

I just hope I get an extra segment credit for the diversion.
