The flight itself was actually fine – it was getting on it that was really annoying. About 3 or 4 years ago my husband and I had a weekend trip to Vegas planned with a direct flight on American Airlines from DFW to Vegas around 10:30am on a Friday. On Thursday afternoon, the day before […]

[Mature content] I’m from Miami but lived and worked in London for a bit. I was a savvy traveler back in the day before 9/11 and would always book my transatlantic flight for business in the States to/from Miami so I could spend some down time for play in my hometown before returning back to […]

I was heading to CT, via Denver. It wasn’t until we had half -boarded the plane that we were informed that airport maintenance needed to check out the plane for a suspicious “dent.” They had to ensure it wouldn’t do anything weird up there. Forty-five minutes later, after they had photographed the dent and consulted their […]

About 6 months ago my wife decided it would be a good idea to use some of her frequent flier mileage to fly on Delta from Spokane to her parents’ place in Houston. When she booked the trip in May with Delta, the itinerary looked normal, Spokane to Salt Lake City, then on to Houston. […]

On the subject of luggage, I witnessed a fellow traveler who was bound and determined to get his bag into the overhead bin, no matter what it took or how much time it involved. As he wrestled and pounded the recalcitrant bag into the space, the passenger tested the bin door to make sure it […]
