The usual accompaniment was with me for the flight. Wow. I like it. USMC et al. That tells me something.
Two out of place characters were present. They seemed to be Romanians, one of whom was working on writing code. Neither had seating assignments or boarding passes. They sat next to me at the gate. When I boarded one was in my seat, the other next to him. The stewardess didn’t care that they had no documents. Maybe they were standby, but I know that those seats had been filled. Maybe just those cancelled.
When I got my SIM card for the trip, the gal said my passport number was already in use by a Canadian. I still got the card though.
