Air Travel In General Informative - Worst Month For Air Travel
According to an article in THE WASHINGTON POST, this past June was the worst for air travel in the last 12 years. More delays (bad weather & mechanical problems), fewer available crews, more lost luggage and more people traveling. Less available aircraft, less staffing at the gates, baggage handlers. In a few past postings I have mentioned AMTRAK as an alternative but they are plagued with long delays on many long distance trains. Remember the old adage 'Getting there is half the fun'?
Not fun anymore having to wait in long security lines, unruly desk agents, poor customer service and lack of coordination/communication by the airlines.
