It’s after Memorial Day and that means we’re entering prime leisure travel season in the US. Kids are out of school and families are going on trips that they planned all year. Unfortunately, this is also the time of the year where weather can wreak havoc on airline travel on an almost daily basis. Living in Orlando, we’re accustomed to severe weather blowing through all the time. Here’s a picture a friend of ours took just last week looking from one side of the car and then the other.
With sudden changes to the weather being the norm for six months out of the year, we’re used to experiencing weather delays when flying. While we try to take these things in stride, we’ve watched people go through every level of grief over a 45 minute delay. Here’s our tips on what you can and should do if your flight is delayed.

Many people could be considered “the worst passenger ever.” We even covered a bunch of them (maybe not all “the worst” but definitely annoying!) in this post ;). But when the editor of an award-winning TV show decides to live Tweet about the plane passenger from hell, you know you’re in for a treat. Here’s what happened…

Airlines get a bad rap, often deservedly so. According to USA Today, two of the twenty most hated companies in America are airlines with United coming in at number 19 and Spirit, not surprisingly, getting the number 9 slot. I think this comes from many of the customer unfriendly policies that the airlines implement, ranging anywhere from non-refundable tickets, excessive baggage charges, Basic Economy tickets and charging for everything from Wi-Fi to blankets and even sodas while onboard. I’ve read post after post of Facebook friends who have been treated horribly by airlines. But here’s a question – if airlines are willing to treat celebrities, Olympic medal winners and national icons horribly, what makes you think you’re any different? Please know that I’m writing this knowing that these celebrities are complaining about #firstworldproblems.

We just recently used Twitter to fix our reservation with JetBlue and they were great, but Continue reading “Posts We Like: “When An Airline Proves Twitter Support Is Officially Worthless””
