My company flies me and the top 20 sales guys in the company out to LA for meetings. This is the first time they have done this in many years. I live 25 minutes from the airport. My route is impervious to rush hour, and I have never seen it take over 45 minutes to […]

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 […]

Dear friends, I would like to share my experience in Helsinki less than a month ago, May 22, 2016. I had a 40 minute connection between the flights from Moscow to NYC. Because the hand luggage screeners were so slow, I missed that connection.

This isn’t really a flight from hell, just an experience that I would love to share with you guys. Okay, so in July I went from SEA (Seattle) to YOW (Ottawa, Canada) with a stopover in EWR (Newark). The returning flight was the same, but with a stopover in YYZ (Toronto, Canada). The outbound flight was […]

I was part of a university trip from Ontario to Tanzania, Africa. Seven students, myself included, were flying from Toronto to Amsterdam. The rest of the group, the professors included, were flying from Ottawa to Amsterdam. We would all meet up on our connecting flight and fly into Tanzania together.

In 2010 my mother and I were flying from Eugene, Oregon to Columbia, South Carolina. We were all forced to wait for two hours for an old United Express CRJ-200 that would take us to San Francisco. After waiting for two hours for “weather delays” we finally were rushed onto the cramped 50 seater. By […]

I was scheduled to fly US Airways from NAS to BWI with a plane change in PHL. I arrived at the airport and waited, only to have the flight delayed for an hour. After a few grumbles from us sunburned travelers, we waited for another hour – not that bad. As soon as we got […]

I checked my bag for a flight to Canada that I missed due to being delayed by TSA. I was rebooked for another flight later in the day, and boarded this flight. The cabin crew was very unfriendly and was insistent that they check my carry on bag (which was a delicate sewing machine and embroidery attachments). I did […]

I was flying from Boston to Billings, MT via Detroit and Denver (the only way to get a decent fare was to have two stops). The Boston-Detroit leg was uneventful, and I wandered around the Detroit airport looking for a way to pass the time on my two-hour layover. I then heard an announcement over […]

My daughter and I were booked on an AirTran flight from Milwaukee to Washington DC on Sunday Aug 5th. During the day I went online and realized early that the flight was delayed by two hours, re-scheduled to depart at 9:30 PM. But common sense and advice tells you to go to the airport as […]
