July 1st marked the worst travel experience my husband, daughter and I have ever had anywhere in the world. Beyond the massive delay and missed connection, the customer service from British Airways was horrific. It was not until we boarded our flight 6 hours later that we were able to speak to actual BA personnel. […]

This probably wasn’t a flight from Hell, but it was at least from Heck, or maybe Purgatory.

My spouse, a friend and I took a tour of the Holy Land last year. We all sat in the same row next to each other. Since I had flown internationally several times, I thought El Al Airlines would provide the same excellent international flying experience I had received on other airlines. Boy, was I […]

This might not be a flight from hell, but unfortunately it’s the “New Normal.” A few times a year I visit my elderly parents over a long weekend in Hamburg, Germany, usually flying Delta/Air France. Leaving Friday, the plane to Atlanta was delayed and I barely made the connection to CDG (Paris).
