The Flight to Cusco

Added on by Bill.

We were fortunate to arrive at the airport early. Our travelling partners discovered at check-in that they had been bumped. The good news was there was a flight leaving immediately for Lima with a connecting flight to Cusco. Had we arrived even 15 minutes later they would have missed that flight to Lima and the next one would not have been until the following day.  In the end they arrived 1 hour after we did.

Our flight to Cusco took us through Juliaca which is the airport closest to Lake Titicaca. A full plane leaving Arequipa was left half empty after the Juliaca stop.  I say half empty purposely as, in the case of airplanes, emptiness is the preferred condition.
