Operation 49 Deuce

For Unite16 we had put Fairbanks under 22 layers of blue. I decided I wanted to see the max layers I could achieve. I came up with a plan to get 45 layers over Fairbanks. Then ULA were released! After some discussion with +Kyle Tee  My plan went from 45 to over 100! With Alaska being the 49th state and our motto being "Field Big or Go Home" I decided we should be able to achieve 49 layers twice. I had extra layers to work with but with all operations there are problems encountered. Our first issue would be Point Hope link to Clear Air Force Base. Secondly working with remote sites and organizing shift work schedules would be challenging. Point Hope was then hit multiple times by spoofers. We knew we could not take advantage of the situation or we would be accused of cheating (some still are). We finally had a date that worked for everyone and agent DoctorFalken would go to Clear. The links from Point Hope had been reestablished and we were clear to go. In total we achieved 96 layers, 9.5 million mu (huge for a rural area) with links spanning 750KM up to 1200KM. Almost 90% of the portals used for this event were created by my wife AKbenji and myself over the last two years of +Ingress  . There were originally only 4 portals along this layer route. I hope we will hear soon from +John Hanke   on this new portal submission process (all tho I have concerns about it) So I can get back to creating portals where so few people travel for amazing OP's such as this. Big thank you to all the following people.

Yes I am butt hurt. I have put time and money that I work 10+ hours a day for to make a ton of people I don't actuality know to have a good time with prizes and gift cards. Just to be denied on the anniversary of the event I cherish.

Finishing off an OP in Carcross..... The northern lights were awesome, and the cops kept a close eye on me.

+Delta made the mistake of sending me a customer satisfaction survey. Below is my response. Buyer, beware.   #DeltaAirlines  

I write to you absolutely dissatisfied with my experience. I found out about my flight delay via text three hours before my flight in Toronto, as I was walking into the airport.  No problem, these things happen. I fly frequently, so I knew what to do. Mine was the last flight to Atlanta, and as there was one flight prior,  I went to the gate and asked the gate staff if I could get on the earlier flight that was boarding just then. I explained that I would miss my connection due to the later delay. At first, they didn't have time to speak with me. I understand that they were busy boarding the plane, but this was communicated in a rude manner: I stood in front of the desk for 10 minutes while this gentleman stared at his computer, long after the last people had boarded. They had called several late travelers on the overhead speaker, so I knew they had several available seats. He simply didn't have time to speak with me, and brushed me off when I expressed my concerns. He talked over me and casually told me there would be no problems making my connection. I left the desk in tears when he sealed the gate, knowing I would get stuck in Atlanta.

Later, when people began arriving for the flight from YYZ to ATL, I approached the gate again, as the flight was now even more delayed. Unfortunately, it was the same staff at the gate that I had dealt with previously. I again expressed my concerns about getting stuck in Atlanta, and inquired on if I could just rebook for the morning so I wouldn't get stuck. I could have spent the night at my boyfriend's house and flown home in the morning, much preferred to getting stuck. He waved me off and said there would be no problems with connections.

I again expressed my concerns and told him I was sure I would get stuck there. He again said there would be no problems with connections, getting irritated with me. I sat down and waited to board.

The plane taxied into ATL 25 minutes before takeoff of my connection to Jax. I ran to my gate once I was let off of the plane, taking the train across three terminals, and made it to my gate TWELVE MINUTES before scheduled takeoff time. Not only were the doors closed, but there was no one at the gate. I spoke to a woman in a Delta uniform who was passing, and she told me they closed that flight out 'awhile ago'. I watched my plane take off in horror.

Several other people who had been on my flight experienced the same problem that evening. The woman at the customer service desk that helped us was unimpressed, and we were handed hotel vouchers and instructions without additional help or sympathy. No help with toiletries. No concern that I hadn't eaten in several hours or that it was near midnight and the hotel wouldn't have food available. Thank you also, Delta, for the four hours of sleep between flights, and the amazing experience of waiting half an hour for my hotel shuttle in a creepy crowd outside of the airport at midnight. Being heckled by strange men in hotel vans, vying for my business, was a great life experience.. 

Not only had Delta staff shrugged off my concerns, but the plane was locked down before its scheduled time. The only reason I truly question the takeoff time is because on my flight four days earlier, the plane that I rode from Atlanta to Toronto took off a full ten minutes before its scheduled time. I was the last one to board, even though there had been no delays at that time. 

I am a frequent traveler. I travel by air about twice per month, and I am again reminded why I try to avoid Delta at all costs.+American Airlines staff are not perfect, but they will at least listen to my concerns and try to problem solve. They demonstrate care for their customers. I cannot count how many flights I've adjusted with them in order to get home safey and on time. This experience with +Delta  breaks a perfect streak of being able to get home or stay over at my original destination in order to not miss a connection. 

I believe that my words on this survey are falling on deaf ears; however, someone should know that after my experience this week, I will now go out of my way to express my dissatisfaction with Delta at every chance I get to anyone who will listen.

Always a solid experience and a few decibels quieter than Hard Rock.
