Frequent Flier Smiles

flight

At the Amsterdam Schiphol Airport (AMS) for a business trip, I settled down to await boarding at Gate 44. A voice on the public address system said, “Sorry for the inconvenience, but AMS flight 1053 will board from Gate 42.” We gathered up our carry-on luggage and went to Gate 42.

Ten minutes later, another announcement told us that flight 1053 would be boarding at Gate 44 after all. Once again we picked up our belongings and returned to the original gate. Settling down, we were greeted by a voice over the loud speaker: “Thank you for participating in AMS’ fitness program.”
