SPACE “A” VACATION

At this very moment, I’m sitting in a C7 aircraft just leaving Hawaii.  My family and I for our first time ever are using Space A flights.  Which for those who aren’t familiar are FREE flights for military.  That’s right!  FREE!  Holy moly guacamole the change in my pocket is doing the happy.  I can’t believe we haven’t tried this sooner.  I researched Space A flights months before we decided to try them and pretty much you can have the best experience or the worst experience.  I however, have had a great experience thus far.  Now maybe on our way back home I may have different feelings, but right now I seriously think Space A flights are such a privilege for the military and their dependents. 

We left Guam for Hawaii not knowing when or if we’d be getting out on a flight to where we were hoping once we landed in Hawaii.  When we landed in Hawaii we knew we would have two days before we could try for a flight out to Indiana.  Now most people would probably dislike being stuck somewhere for two days, but I on the other hand was ecstatic to be on vacation stuck in Hawaii.  First off, this is my first time here and second, I get to take pictures of it all.  Holla!

Which brings me to what’s cool and what’s not so cool about Space A flight vacations:

* Being stuck in Hawaii for two days.  COOL

* Not renting a GPS with your rental car.  SO NOT COOL

* Air Force men in flight suites instead of commercial flight attendants. SO COOL

* Boxed meals on our flights.  SO COOL

* Flights where you can’t hear your children scream, whine or cry.  SO COOL

* Saving $5000 instead of buying commercial tickets.  SO COOL with a two thumps up.  Holla!

* Having all the leg room you want. SO COOL

* Jetlag!  SO NOT COOL
