SIL arrived relatively unscathed to Atlanta. A minor stressful moment when the time between getting through customs and making connecting flight was approximately 30 seconds. Managed to arrive at gate as last people were boarding. SIL's window seat was taken but she was in no mood for pleasantries and growled at young man who innocently looked surprised that his seat was actually the middle one.
Hotel is magnificent. SIL at last being treated as she should. Has been invited to the manager's cocktail party this evening - not sure what this means but hopefully will include free booze and food. Alas tomorrow work beckons for poor SIL.
