Some friends of ours moved there recently, and I have been meaning to go visit for several months. My husband gets stand-by tickets with his job, so I used one to fly out there. I have to say...it was scary! I planned on coming back Thursday, but actually couldn't get home until Saturday. Also, our flight had a lay-over in Denver, so I just had to hope that the flight could fit us.
For anyone who plans on flying stand-by, the best days to fly are Tuesday, Wednesday, and Saturday. I assumed that week-days would be best, but, apparently, Monday and Thursday, which are the days I picked, are actually the worst.
My Sunshine did AMAZING! He played or slept most of the flights. He got fussy only for a little bit, but fellow passengers graciously helped keep him entertained.
I have to admit, I pictured Kansas as being a desolate wasteland.
Although it is VERY flat, it still has beauty.
...and also hay fields in the middle of town.
