NWA Strikes Again

A follow up to my previous NWA post...

I'm heading out to Newark on Friday night for a college friend's wedding. NWA called and left a message on my cell phone yesterday to let me know my flight tomorrow is canceled.

Is it really that hard to schedule your flights? C'mon!

When I called in, the first person I spoke with wanted to charge me $50+$5+12,500 frequent flier miles to change the first part of my reservation that wasn't affected. On one hand, this makes sense. On the other, they just canceled the return leg of my flight... the least they could do is be flexible when they're expecting me to be!

Since we did we all become cartoons...?

In the past week, there's been a huge influx of Myspacers and Facebook-kids using Simpon like cartoons on their profiles.

What happened...?

Despite my lack of insight into this trend, I'm going to post my very own cartoon self for your viewing pleasure...

Thanks Andy for making this little thing for me almost 10 years ago or something. If only I had a bigger version of it!

NWA - Give me a break!!

I was checking ticket prices on NWA this morning when I saw this screen, " Reservations is temporarily unavailable. We are upgrading our site."

All I can say to this is, give me a break! Who upgrades their site at 10 AM on a business day? This is their #1 source of revenue and now, customers can't purchase their product. It's especially bad considering that this is peak travel season.

I understanding these upgrades in the middle of the night on Saturday or Sunday, but most definitely not in the morning on a Friday...

Wow, two weeks!

Wow, it's been roughly two weeks since I last posted! To those of you who periodically check my blog, I apologize for the lack of new content!

I've been SUUUUPER busy the past few weeks-- just running around at some kind of warp speed.

Anyway, I'm still here... just a little preoccupied.

Be back soon!
