At one point I sensed someone near me and woke up to an AA employee putting a blanket over me! How cool is that??? - Nicole
by a traveller
"I'm one of those people that can sleep without any distraction interfering with my snooze. Recently, I arrived really late on a delayed flight into Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport in San Juan, missing my late evening connection. Since I had been re-booked on a connection leaving about 6 AM, I decided that I would just sleep in the airport... No such thing! I was rousted out of my seat by Security and directed to the in-airport fleabag of a hotel... Overpriced, tiny room, smelling like old gym socks! "
