Travel Musings

I was reminded today of the importance of double checking my travel schedule before heading to the airport. After a two hour drive, and while checking in, the Kiosk asked if I wanted to take an earlier flight – but since I was right on time for my flight I just clicked on through. When I got my boarding passes they were for a flight that left three hours later!

THEN I checked my reservations – sure enough, 1:30 not 10:51.

Went back and selected the earlier flight, even though I then lost my complimentary upgrade. Result was to arrive in Florida 3 hours earlier.

Fortunately, after I got on the plane in Houston, the flight attendants let me know that I had been upgraded – so a change of seats ensued. Sweet.

Moral of the story: actually look at your itenary before getting to the airport and don’t just assume it’s always the same flight even if its always the same destination.
