Warning: Possible spoilers! (???)
This Sunday CBS is airing the 16th edition of The Amazing Race. As you may know contestants race around the world performing tasks and trying to reach the finish line, in each stage, before everyone else. The last team at each stop is eliminated until only one team remains.
Back in November there were several film crews and some brightly dressed contestants for this show transiting LAX. When the JFK flight was delayed about 90 minutes the panicked contestants budged the line so they could get on another flight. I have no idea what flight they ended up taking, or where they were connecting to, but we arrived in New York only 45 minutes late that day. I am sure they could have made their connection. Rookies.
VIP service for non-VIPs

Update: Josh pointed out my mistake – this was at LAX not SFO – the above post is updated to reflect that.
