Hello!!! [Aug. 5th, 2003|12:39 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
I am back home =) I had a wonderful time visiting with family! Coming back was terrible though. At the time my mom & Kachina dropped me off at the airport in KC, my flight was listed as "on time". Three hours later, they updated its status to "still grounded in Cincinnati". Then it was "canceled". It was all a horrible mess, and I arrived in Cincinnati two-and-a-half hours after my connecting flight was scheduled to LEAVE, but I'm not going to dwell on now. I eventually got home very early this morning =P

Note to Delta Airlines: Having your customer service reps end each and every sentence with a monotonous "I do not mean to sound insensitive" or "We here at Delta are sympathetic to your situation" DOESN'T HELP.

Now, I have about 18 million things to do! I have about half a dozen stores I need to run errands at, about twenty-five things to send at the Post Office, etc. I might get some painting in late tonight - if I do I will post a link to my webcam later! I'll be painting solidly though for the next several weeks, hehehe.....

I will also try to catch up on some email today too - I'm sorry to be neglectful of everybody's LiveJournals - I just kind of scanned through them quickly and I probably missed a bunch of stuff!!

SOrry to hear about the rough ride home :( I think Delta has got to be the worst airline for me! Poor customer service during flight and their planes seem to be more packed than others that i have to meditate during the whole flight telling myself "I am not in a sardine can!"

Ugh, I don't think I'll fly Delta again. I'd rather pay an extra $20 and get a direct flight with the good people at Southwest! They are always very nice folks, and I've had no problems with them!

JASMINE!!!!!!!!!!!! Yay! I missed you girl! Erika and I got to have a lovely chat with your Matty on Saturday night, lol. He missed you TERRIBLY. I was away from my Zachary too so I could relate =(

Airports suck, lol. This is why I don't fly. I've had to wait THIRTEEN HOURS before in some random location that I had to stop and switch planes at. NO fun! And you are SOOOOOOOOO right. The whole "We are sympathetic to your situation" doesn't help worth sh*t!!!!!!!

glad to see you are back. often the airlines try to avoid telling you this, but if your flight is cancelled, they are required to put you on the next available seat on a flight on a different airline, and they are required to pay for the ticket. not reimburse you, a representative comes over and signs something and off you go. this costs them mucho dinero and they don't like to tell you this, they would rather you sit there endlessly and wait. if you remind them about it and insist, they will put you on a flight with another airline so you can make your connecting flight and not be stuck. you are not stuck with, let's say, delta's flights. they will sometimes tell you no other airline has an available seat, but if you go to the desk yourself and tell the other airline your predicament, they will sometimes go over to let's say, the delta desk, and get the ticket comped for you.

it's a good thing :-)

glad you had fun and you are back, i pulled this manuever several times, used to travel a great great deal, so i think this at least used to be the rules, just fyi ;-)

That's the impression I was under - but (like you said) they kept claiming that there were no other flights open (yeah, right). Eventually after much arguing and tears I got on this crappy little charter plane, ugh, which was a total drag. It too was running a couple of hours late, and we landed long after my connecting flight was scheduled. However, as luck would have it, the connecting flight was running 2 and a half hours late as well, so I hopped right on! So, one thing I can say about Delta - at least their flights are consistently late!!!
