Note: I recently traveled to South Africa on the “Etihad Mistake Fare.” I began this memoir post 2 days into my travels. ~~~~~ I promised myself I would try to write daily and perhaps post a sort of daily journal entry on my blog, but fatigue gets in the way. After 2 days and nights … Read More
Etihad Airways has a pretty solid reputation as an airline, especially if flying in business or first class. Even in coach, it is known to be fairly decent. I had some nice flights on my way to South Africa (blog posts to follow). But be warned, sometimes the flights are Jet Airways flights, on Jet … Read More

Did you receive notification from Orbitz saying your flight to Scranton is delayed?
As I wrote about in the post entitled The Day United Airlines Flights Were Grounded, I was scheduled to travel to Florida on United Airlines on July 8th. United’s systems were down for many hours that day, so it was a fiasco of a day. I did eventually make it to my destination on a … Read More
