Temecula may be one of California’s best-known wine regions, but I’ll always remember it for something else: the fresh fruit we harvested on a recent visit to this out-of-the-way Southern California destination. “A berry good time in Southern California, Temecula edition”
Sometimes, travel isn’t fun. Jane Hatch’s last-minute winter flight from Baltimore to Milwaukee was for the worst reason of all. “Enterprise puts a customer on the road in the nick of time”
Jill King-Fernandez and her family voluntarily give up their seats on a Spirit Airlines flight. In exchange, they’re offered flight vouchers. But the vouchers are unusable. Now what? “What is the value of a Spirit Airlines voucher if I can never use it?”
Seems like the airlines just don’t get it.
You’d think that after United settled with David Dao for the severe injuries he sustained while being forcibly removed from an overbooked flight, airlines would understand that overselling flights and removing already-seated passengers won’t fly as a matter of customer service. “The real reason you can’t use your older son’s airline ticket for your younger son”
Family travel, as rewarding as it can be, is seldom easy. And with increasing airline fees for anything they can charge for, it’s also become much more expensive, especially for cost-conscious travelers who don’t fly enough to have airline status.
It’s not just needing to bring your own food, and pay for your bags. Now families have to pay just to be guaranteed to be seated together.
