Airline Ticket

July 6th, 2023 at 09:28 pm

I looked at my airline ticket for next week's trip to visit my son -- I realized that the plane leaves at 6 am, which I apparently didn't think was a bad time when I booked the ticket, but I forgot I would have to be there two hours earlier, plus the airport is about 40 minutes away. WHAT WAS I THINKING? I am not at all comfortable with taking an Uber in the wee hours, not to mention I'm not sure I would be able to function at that time. So I decided to book a room at the airport hotel the night before. It's way more expensive than I thought it would be -- with the fees tacked on it's $303, which I think is outrageous, but maybe it's typical these days. Anyway, I'm going to do it, it will make for a much better start to the day, which is going to be a long one.

I won't make that mistake again! I'm sure I went for this ticket because the price was better, but I will have to remember that I'm an old lady now, and a mid-day flight is a much better option, whatever the price.

    I wish that I lived close enough to give you a ride. Enjoy your visit with your son and his family. Smile

    Would it cost less to switch to a later flight?

    Oh I do that too. I look at when and what times flights leave to make sure we can make it.

    I don't think I can switch to a later flight. One of those economy tickets. But it's okay. I'm feeling very peaceful with my decision to get a hotel room. It will make the day so much easier.

    Yikes, I did the same thing when flying to NYC but opted to catch the train early morning, $7, much cheaper than Uber and a hotel.
    I’m not sure if you’re aware, you can share your Uber and Lyft location with family and friends, this maybe an option if it happens again. I do this when solo traveling.

    Enjoy your stay at the hotel, maybe you could stroll the area, have a nice dinner.

    Have fun
