ticket agent

My wife and I were going on our first-ever cruise to the Bahamas in July, 2015. The flight took us from Dulles airport in northern Virginia to Miami, then from Miami back to Dulles on the return trip. Our cruise was wonderful, and we came away from it relaxed and ready to return to Virginia. […]

It’s not just the airplanes that have all the fun. I was at a ticket counter attempting to reason with a foreign-born person (I assume) at the Chicago airport about my ticket. There was a serious mistake that had been made during the connecting flight and I was trying to get the agent to understand […]

I fly too often for work. I must have flown close to 1,000,000 miles on airlines in Star Alliance which resulted in Star Alliance Gold status on both Asiana Airlines (Diamond Plus) and Singapore Airlines (PPS Club). In terms of sales revenue, these airlines must have captured at least $400,000 as most flights have been […]

My flights from Hell began with fifty other people, all of whom I knew. By the time we reached our destination together, none of them would have continued to associate themselves with me had we not needed to sing together for the next two weeks. This was the Colby Chorale; this was Spring Break; this […]

I flew from PHX to Des Moines for work. Only direct flight was sold-out. Next best option? PHX-Denver-Des Moines. Sold out. OK, how about PHX-Minneapolis-Des Moines? Good to go. Only bad thing was the flight home. Only way was Des Moines to Detroit then Detroit to PHX. Ugh. So the flight there was uneventful. Flight […]

Hello Delta Customer Service, I would like you to please help me answer a question. I am trying to figure out the following: Why would I ever fly Delta Airlines again? I had a non-direct flight that required me to switch terminals in the PHX airport in order to board a Delta flight. As soon […]

I never upgrade. This isn’t because I’m cheap, but because I’m broke. My fiancée and I are in the middle of immigration hell and immigration hell costs, so while others may be able to choose that option, I can’t. That said, I sometimes wish I could… This has resulted in hellish flights, but this time […]

Earlier this year I made two business trips to Europe to taste wine. The first trip, to Tuscany in Italy, was idyllic as it always is. Yes, the ash from the volcano in Iceland hit the skies while I was there and I had to spend another week in Florence before I could get back, […]

I don’t know if this counts as a “Flight From Hell” – it might be better placed on a website called “Vacations From Hell.” But since every one of the problems was caused by American Airlines, I think it is relevant. Please note that I am not making any of this up. I know it […]
