You know you are seasoned traveler when you get a text message that your flight is canceled and your first reaction is “Aw, man, we just parked in the airport’s daily lot and with RDU’s new policy as of yesterday we are going to have to pay $2 to rebook our flight.”
Thankfully our Gold status allowed us to line jump and get booked on the next available flight which happened to be crazy-early tomorrow morning. And because we didn’t want to land in NYC then turn around and leave the next day, we asked to be moved to a Sunday return flight instead of the late Saturday flight we had originally booked. Luckily, the gate agent was game, so now it’s an early-Fri to mid-Sun trip as opposed to a mid-Thurs to late-Sat trip. Considering that itinerary would have cost over twice as much as the one we booked, it’s a wash.
But I still want my $2 back.
