Living in South Dakota, I totally understand that the weather can cause travel issues. I also completely get that when extreme weather happens, it is beyond anyone’s control. This is not a story complaining about a simple weather issue. My anger is about being lied to, and the airline condoning dishonesty with their staff.

So, this isn’t just about the landing, but also about both of the trips that preceded it. DCA to MSP. Yes, we were flying to Minnesota in winter. No, this story has absolutely nothing to do with snow. Nothing, zilch, nada.

Ever since I started flying, I always seemed to deal with delays and cancellations. There could be a drought in my home city of Baltimore for two weeks leading up to my departure, but the day of it, there would be a massive thunderstorm that delays all flights.

June 2006 – Montreal to Memphis: After a wonderful trip to Canada with my aunt and uncle, we were looking forward to coming home to Memphis and attending my cousin’s wedding that evening. We were approaching the Memphis area when the pilot began circling; a massive storm was barreling down over Memphis causing all incoming […]

I didn’t want to find out when I flew from Denver to Philadelphia that all of the flights to New York got canceled for the night. Even though I stood in a long line for two hours, unable to charge my cell phone, I couldn’t get a hotel voucher because they ran out of them. Regardless […]
