As mentioned earlier, Aunty and I left the house early in the morning since it was an International Flight meaning that we had to be at the airport 4 hours prior to departure. After we checked in and went through airport security, and also expected to be at Gate D20, we were switched to Gate D1. So, here we are at Gate D1 at MIA airport and our aircraft that’s taking us to Kingston πŸ‡―πŸ‡². We have our remaining snacks in our bags ready to snack on this trip to Jamaica and bubblegum to chew throughout the remaining of the flight. So let’s get this flight to Jamaica πŸ‡―πŸ‡² started on American Airlines Flight 1400 service to Kingston JAMAICA!!! πŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŽπŸ‡―πŸ‡²πŸ‡―πŸ‡²πŸŒ΄πŸŒ΄

This time, I had apple juice πŸ§ƒ and my Aunty had water πŸ’§ once again. This time, my Aunty didn’t want her mini pretzels πŸ₯¨ , so she went ahead and gave it to me and I ate it plus my remaining snacks that I packed in my bag. And then I listened to Jamaican Music πŸŽΆπŸ‡―πŸ‡² and chewed bubblegum throughout the remaining of the flight

It’s a small airport and there aren’t any procedures so its kind of a challenge

( use the AA E175 )
