For all the horrid stories you hear about air travel – when Dr. Dao was dragged off the United plane a few years ago, the fistfights that have happened, etc., etc., etc., – it’s always an awesome thing when you hear about the goodness of people, for a change. And that’s exactly what happened not long ago, on a Southwest flight.
There are some people who are DIYers when it comes to air travel. They love to look for the best bargain via cash or miles, to find and use the best apps to get up-to-the-second updates, and the challenge of figuring out another way to get to their destination if their flight plans somehow go haywire (I have just described my husband to a T, by the way). (Joe – True! I was reading and thinking “she’s describing me.”)
Other people are not like that. They may not have the time, know-how or motivation to figure all that out and they’d just as soon pay someone to do it for them, as needed.
I think I’ve found a website for them…
Everyone has a bucket list of where they want to go. New York! Paris! London! Tokyo! Sydney! But once you start planning that once-in-a-lifetime trip, you discover there’s so much to do that you can’t decide your schedule. Or maybe you’re really good at saving up miles or cash for a flight but aren’t the best at the details and logistics of what to do every day of your travel. Well, apparently there’s a website to help you with that.
American Airlines, the largest airline in the United States, and Delta Airlines, the second largest carrier, have decided to resume an agreement that allows the airlines to rebook their passengers on each other’s airlines in the event of travel disruptions.
If you visit New York (or London or Paris, for that matter), there are dozens upon dozens of things for tourists to do. There are some “all inclusive” passes that include discounted admission into several attractions, but if you’re still figuring out what you want to see, or if a pass has more attractions automatically included that you may not want, how do you know which pass to get, or even if you should get a pass at all? What’s the best deal? Well, as the old saying goes, “There’s an app for that!”
