    I had a sort-of-similar experience on Wednesday: I was going to a church conference and doing an IHS meetup in Nashville and had booked a flight that went to Nashville (via Atlanta) in the morning and returned in the evening. It might seem silly to fly from BHM to Nashville via Atlanta, but it was fairly cheap, and I expected to be able to work on syllabi and other stuff in the air and at the airport. I also hate driving.

    The 5:30 AM BHM-ATL flight was delayed, and we were sitting on the plane being told they had no idea when we would be able to depart. A quick calculation later, I decided to ask the flight attendant if I could get a refund if I deplaned and drove to my destination. Since this was the first leg of the trip and since it was due to a tech problem, I was able to get a refund. Not optimal, but as repeated “DELAY” notifications came in via the Delta app while I was driving, I discovered that I had chosen wisely.
