It was neat – we got to the airport five minutes before wheels up. As soon as the pilot showed up, we strolled with him to the plane and quickly settled into one of the plush seats. Within minutes, we had pushed off, breaking through the low hanging clouds and into the hidden glorious sunrise. No restrictions on electronic usage; everyone merrily pecked away on their laptops, phones.
Then, when we landed, the customs officials drove right up to the plane, gave a cursory inspection of our passports, then waved us into the waiting cabs by the plane.
It was such an efficient way to travel! Hahah.
