Dave!I'm sitting here watching the movie White Chicks on television because there's nothing better on. If you need a sign that The Apocalypse is upon us, this is it.

When do we get a sequel where two white actors play Black Chicks?

Yesterday I asked "what new horrors will tomorrow bring?"

It was meant to be rhetorical, but The Universe decided to answer back "All your travel plans are ruined."

This morning I found out that Horizon Air has replaced the small 36-seater turbo-prop service with larger 72-seater service out of my local airport at Wenatchee's Pangborn Field. Ordinarily, this would be a good thing... sometimes those flights are oversold and hard to book... but they changed the schedule too.

This is a major problem for me, because the 6:00am flight I usually take to connect with all the early east-coast routes is gone. The earliest plane out of Wenatchee is now 7:10am, which doesn't connect well with much of anything heading eastward. So now instead of arriving in time for dinner, I'm arriving in time for bed.

If I'm lucky.

As I found out while I was changing all my flights this morning, any time I fly east I'm going to end up overnighting in Seattle or taking a lot of overnight flights from now on.


Though I guess it beats stopping service to Wenatchee altogether.

If ever there was a time for DaveAir, this would be it...

Though I can't imagine that the airline industry is a business anybody really wants to be in now-a-days.

    Horizon has changed their schedule out of Santa Rosa so many times, I don’t even count on it ever being the same… sorry it seems you have a whole day wasted now!

  2. Göran says:

    White chicks (the movie) scared me!

  3. Poppy says:

    Poppy’s solution: Move to the east coast.

  4. Seriously, there was *nothing* better on than White Chicks? Yes the apocalypse has begun.

  5. Janna says:

    It’s ok.
    The universe doesn’t seem to understand MY rhetorical questions either.

  6. Interesting – that 6:00 AM service out of Wenatchee was the only way for me to get back to Upstate in one day. That sucks!

  7. Avitable says:

    I was stuck watching that for a few minutes when it was on tv last night because there was nothing else on, but then I decided to punch myself in the face for two hours instead.

    We would totally fly Air Dave. We wouldn’t trust Bad Monkey as a flight attendant or the pilot. Or especially with luggage or maintenance. In fact, the further you can keep Bad Monkey away, the better. Clone Li’l Dave… he seems a bit more responsible… We think.

  9. Karl says:

    So I take it you get plane tickets that are non non-refundable? Otherwise, that would be a very costly venture. Or rather, even MORE costly.

  10. Winter says:

    I’d fly on a plane that looked that cool. As long as the snacks weren’t bananas. Ugh.

  11. Tracy Lynn says:

    Dude, now you know why I am constantly saying BASTARDS. And re: Poppy’s Solution, I think you could just as easily move to Seattle, although I honestly can’t imagine the havoc that would also wreak in the Universe. HEH.

  12. Hilly Sue says:

    I’ve seen that movie and I am even more ashamed to say…whenever Vanessa Carlton comes on, I jokingly say “oh my gawwwd, that’s totally my jam!”

  13. Jake Titus says:

    So that was creepy. I just saw the commercial for White Chicks not two days ago. The first thing that popped into my head was “When do we get a sequel where two white actors play Black Chicks?” Verbatim! BTW if you serve Heath Bar Ben and Jerrys in first class, I’ll sooo fly Dave Air!

  14. Poppy says:

    Re Tracy Lynn’s re: I was going to suggest Seattle, but I was feeling East Coast selfish.
