delay/cancellation

Last year we went to Rome for a week for my 30th birthday and brought our then 2-year-old. The flight there was no problem other than our stroller getting lost (but it was a cheap umbrella stroller so I wasn’t too put out). I’d actually flown with him several times before that and had learned […]

OK – Newark Airport seems to be undergoing much needed construction – perhaps the best kept secret of all. That does not excuse JetBlue for constantly delaying flights for hours on end, leaving customers to sit for hours with no information other than the constant e-mail, text and on-screen updates – 9:45 delayed – expected […]

It is Spring Break 2013, and I am flying from YVR (Vancouver, Canada) to LAX (Los Angeles, California) with my high school band to go to a major music festival. The first problem is that all 100 students arrived at 5:30 am and had lined up waiting to be checked in. I arrived at 6:00 when […]

Thankfully the curbside check-in was open, […]

The returning flight was the same, but with a stopover in YYZ (Toronto, Canada). The outbound flight was […]

When I was in high school, we went on a Caribbean cruise for Christmas. The airline the cruise line made us use was TWA. This was right after the TWA crash over France, so flying that airline scared the life out of me. Nothing happened on the way over other than the plane being really […]

In August 2006 I was flying to Amsterdam from SFO to take a cruise to the Baltics three days later. This was on the day of the “fluid bombers” scare on British Air. American Airlines to JFK to Heathrow, then British Air to Amsterdam. I used miles, hence the many stops. Luckily I was in […]

I really love kids – most of the time. We were flying from Brussels to New York last March. First of all, our plane was 40 minutes late because we had to wait for a large group of people coming from Paris. So we were sitting there in the plane waiting for that group.

Dear Delta, We do understand the weather situation. However, our problems originated from technical faults of your airline. The cancellation of flight KL6104 due to technical faults was the catalyst for the myriad of problems that resulted, which included four preceding flights that were cancelled at the last minute with little or no explanation, leaving us […]

We decided to fly my family out of DEN to MEM on a direct flight the week before Thanksgiving so my young daughters could spend more time with Gma and Gpa, and my wife could visit her brothers for a week. I had to work and stay behind.
