Optimism in its purest form

I just checked in (online) for my flights back to Seattle on Sunday. I’m due to depart Boston at 6:00am and land at IAD (Washington Dulles) at 7:49am; allow a few extra minutes to taxi to the gate. Meanwhile my flight from IAD to SEA is supposed to start boarding at 7:50am, and to push back at 8:20am.

Oh yes: the BOS-IAD flight has an 87% on-time record.

Wish me luck….
