Finally the day of the dreaed 12 hour flight back to Seattle had come. We weren't excited for the plane ride, but we were excited that it was taking us home! So, we got all our stuff and sat at a corner and waited for a bus for about 30 minutes.
When we got to the airport and to our gate, we were surprised to see a little ceremony going on! We were flying on Delta's first ever non-stopping flight from Hong Kong to Seattle! It was actually super exciting!
They had all these important Delta people flying on our plane, so we had to go through some extra security. I was kind of worried this first flight would be like the first sail of the Titanic, but luckily, we were all safe!
The best part was when they surprised us with certificates and pens of the Seattle Space Needle that light up!
We had quite a bit of a layover in Seattle. It was about five hours and we were used to it being in the middle of the night, so we all just slept on the airport floor, it was the most uncomfortable thing, and I just wanted to be home. Then finally we landed in Salt Lake late in the afternoon, and it was so wonderful! I loved being able to see my family and Justin again!
