Today is a travel day. Unfortunately, no-one told Lynx this as the bus 111 came a FULL HOUR behind schedule. This means I got to the airport with about 38 minutes before my flight.
Yep, I got to the check-in counter just in time to be told “you missed your flight. We’ll rebook you for Wednesday.”
“Wednesday? What happens to my hotel for TONIGHT and Tuesday?”
“You can do whatever you want,” she shrugged, “…but our next flight into BWI isn’t until Wednesday. I’ll let you think about it. NEXT!”
This means I’m stuck here unless I can find another flight. I check Travelocity, there is an American Airlines flight leaving at 12:03pm…for $491.
The only reason I booked the flight to BWI was because a direct flight into Allentown was $430 on American and MCO to BWI was $87 on Frontier.
Which would YOU rather pay.
I’m on booked the extremely expensive flight to BWI plus $55 “convenience fee” for booking at the counter. Because if this experience is anything, it’s “convenient.”
However, the alternative is going back to the curre apartment and cancelling my hotel, my train on Wednesday from Baltimore to Philly and all of my apartment tours for the week.
In other words, just shrug my shoulders and give up. I can’t afford to do that not for what my rent became as of December 1st (Happy birthday from Epoch Property Management!!).
Lets not forget noisily clearing those woodlands outside window early last month. They are doing less work now (meaning less noise!), but those trees aren’t coming back even after that 7-11 is built.
On the plus side, it’s a lot easier to buy milk there than try to cross Westwood and Central Florida Parkway, but, no, focus… on waiting three hours for my flight’s.
