Hack your trip with Southwest Part I

Southwest Points, Companion Pass, and more

Southwest Airlines is probably the most popular airline in the United States. Free check-in bags, free cancelation, popular destinations, fun crew, the good list can go on and on. So how to get Southwest points and does it worth the efforts?

航空公司 Elite Status 的重要性 ---- Delta Airlines

感谢 NYC 和 LGA 的 Flight Delay 给我这个处女博的机会。

上周末我和Emma到纽约去玩了一个周末,玩的很开心,但是离开的时候问题来了。。。夏天雷雨比较多,航班delay的情况比较普遍,特别是在 LGA。

说说基本情况,我的航班是 LGA to DTW,Emma的航班是LGA-ATL,我们是没有这个机场travel的经验,来回的飞机都delay了。


最可怕的是Emma回程的航班,DL 947,从19:00PM delay到第二天1:00AM。因为我们之前没有飞机delay的经验,而且最先也只是delay了一两个小时,觉得还可以接受,所以就在Sky Club里用电脑看电视剧,也没有去询问Gate Agent 更换航班。后来发现不对了,delay从20:30移到21:00,然后21:30,然后22:00,到最后的01:00AM。。。
