Odds & Ends Stories

On February 16th, 2017, my family and I traveled on United Airlines from Boston to Maui with a stop in San Francisco. We took UA207 to San Francisco early that morning. We arrived at the airport late as we were stuck in rush hour traffic from all the commuters going up to Boston as we […]

I’m writing this in the hopes that people don’t get burned by British Airways like we got burned by them. I believe my experience with BA customer service reveals an airline which does not hold itself accountable when it screws up. If you have an option, do not fly British. Because of bad information given […]

If anyone flies within mainland China, you’ll know very well they never tell you true information about what is going on with flight disruptions, delays, and the like. The unwritten rule seems to be the less that is said, the better. Nobody from the airlines wants to lose face, so they come up with this […]

A year ago, I was traveling from my home in Memphis to my parent’s home just outside of Bangor, Maine. I’d made the journey many times before. Normally, I fly American through Philadelphia or Delta through Detroit. However, going from non-hub to non-hub is always very pricy. This time, I was traveling to Bangor in […]

Ever since I started flying, I always seemed to deal with delays and cancellations. There could be a drought in my home city of Baltimore for two weeks leading up to my departure, but the day of it, there would be a massive thunderstorm that delays all flights. It’s like I was cursed. But never […]

My wife and I just returned from 2 weeks in Japan. We took a cruise around the country out of Yokohama, and then stayed another 5 days in Yokohama visiting additional places in Japan. The vacation was wonderful, but getting there and back had its hellish moments.

I don’t normally fly American Airlines – but I needed to get from Washington, DC, to Jackson, Wyoming, and they offered the best route for a reasonable price. I should have paid more for Delta. Worst part is, I kind of knew I should have paid more for Delta.

This story is going to actually be split into two parts. Yeah, both flights were Hell. The story goes like this: I was with my family. We were going to watch a friend or whoever get married in Colorado. I have had numerous experiences with flights before, and to me, this was just another day. Boy, was […]

I was travelling back from Nairobi to London, via Paris, with Sudan Air in 1995, having spent six weeks travelling through Africa on the back of an old Bedford Army truck. After that I had no high expectations at all, especially as I had flown with them on the way over previously. However, on arriving […]

So I leave Perth on a 0530 flight to Kununurra (fine)… threeish hours there, only to drive five hours inland and swag in the bush for the night, 200 km from the nearest roadhouse (that means fuel, food, water, and people – all 20 of them). I am travelling at this point on my own […]
