I nearly missed my flight because of a gate change. I missed the announcement on the plane because I couldn't hear it and the airline was supposed to text me with any updated information. They never sent a text with the gate change. I started to get suspicious when I didn't see anyone waiting at the gate to board. Just as I was going to ask I heard "final boarding call for flight 4760 to Providence." I ran as fast as I could up the terminal 5 gates carrying a heavy backpack and arriving out of breath just in time. I was able to get on the plane. They bumped someone from standby they had given my seat to for me to get on that flight. Another couple arrived just after me. They were not given seats together. I offered to switch with the husband so they could sit together but they didn't mind.
This is the smallest plane I've been on. It was full but I was still near the middle of the plane.
The flight took off on time and everything went smoothly. We arrived a bit early.
