It was, of course, densely packed with travelers who inched along, back and forth, about 20 minutes before reaching the check-in counter. After that, there was another maze to get through security. By the time all that was finally behind me, five hours in a coach seat didn't seem quite as daunting as I originally viewed it -- although, to be fair, five hours in one of today's minuscule coach seats remains "cruel and unusual punishment" when the plane is full. Fortunately, you can overcome problems, but some remedies require that you throw money at them.
