Up at 4:00 am [2:00 am Pacific time], I caught a 6:40 am Southwest flight from Kansas City to Las Vegas. Boarding with A19, I was able to get one of the nice exit row seats on a newer 737. With a long layover, I had breakfast at the PGA Tour Grill.
I then caught what was supposed to be a 9:50 am Southwest flight from Las Vegas to Sacramento. It boarded about 9:40 am for a scheduled 10:05 am take-off. With A22, I got another exit row on an older 737. I ended up with exit row seats on all four flights this trip Once we boarded, they continued to work on a problem with the floor lighting for the rear exit. It was after 10:30 am before we finally took off. I was back in Sacramento just after noon.
