I guess getting home 26 hours late counts as hell. I had a nice 10 days in California and my United flights out, SCE to ORD to LAX and mid-trip LAX to SFO, were just fine. The return flight SFO to ORD to SCE was a bit of a haul. Share a cab and arrive […]

Turkish Airlines best European airline 5 years in a row? Maybe so, but given my experience with them on long haul flights, it is hard to believe that they merit this award. I am interested in other people’s experience to know whether I have just experienced an unfortunate incident, or whether their service is not […]

I had an Air Canada ticket for December 29, 2014 from Zürich, Switzerland to Vancouver via London, and a connecting flight the same evening to Prince George. My baggage was checked in to Prince George before departure in Zürich, where I received my boarding pass for London but not for Vancouver – obviously the flight […]

After a 3 hour drive to the Seattle Airport, waiting in a long line, we were greeted by a wonderful host. Being very hesitant, because we had never flown this airline before, I thought these are wonderful people who work here. Boy was I ever disappointed!!!!!

BA Flight 217 Heathrow – DC August 4, 2015. I travel quite a bit both within Europe and transatlantic. The nightmare of an experience that I had on August 4th on British Airways (BA) is one that I will never forget!
