|Grounded in Gatwick

I'm chilling here in the North Terminal of the Gatwick airport near London. My flight from SFO ended at the Heathrow airport and I had to take a coach from there to Gatwick. The coach driver said that I should get off at the South Terminal, but that turned out to be wrong and I had to go to the North Terminal instead. So I missed my flight. Luckily I was able to catch another flight to Barcelona three hours later for no extra charge.
The Virgin Atlantic flight was very good. I had a nice dinner, even though they ran out of the traditional turkey dinner just as they were about to serve me. So I had the pasta and beef instead.
The on-board entertainment system is quite nice. Everyone has their private LCD screen and there's a remote that can be used to select music, movies, TV shows, and information. I watched two movies: Supersize and The Day After Tomorrow. I probably should have slept instead.
