From Antarctica - November 26, 2015 at 02:29PM

The bus came came to the hostal at 9am and everyone was ready. We went around picking up more people, mainly the Vinson climbers. We still had to go through security, just like any airport but our carry-ons stayed on the bus. We bypass ed the xray bag check. After 45 minutes waiting at the gate, we now were ready to board the bus then the aircraft. We could see the illushin. We also saw another aircraft from Iceland Air. I was joking with Shahrom that if we used the icelandic airplane, it would also make sense cuz were going to the land that is covered by ice. The bus went pass the illushin and stopped in front of the Iceland air. What? This plane is not part of the plan! Once we entered, wow every seat is in business class. I couldn't believe it that we are using a Boeing 757 to fly to Antarctica in this kind of luxury. Apparently this is the first time ALE uses this type of plane to transport people. Thanks ALE for this incredible surprise.
