Actually, the captain said something more like, “We’ve been circling Atlanta for a while and we just tapped into our reserve tank.” The difference is nugatory as far as I am concerned. I never heard a communication from the cockpit quite like that and I hope I don’t again. I left Boston at 9:30 this morning for a two hour trip to Atlanta for Convergence. I landed (again) in Atlanta at about 3:40.
Like I always say, any trip with no unexpected mid-air stops is a good one.
