Airfare drama

Recommended Posts

I think you will be fine, it seems like the airlines build in extra time to their flights now. we flew a couple of months ago and we left at the scheduled time but got there 20-30 early for all four 4 flights (had 1 layover each way).

I made a 35 minute layover in Philly and that included a bus ride to change terminals. We were running, but it worked out.

 

Since you'll have your wedding dress with you, I would just ask the flight attendant if you could get off the plane first if you're delayed at all. Let her know that your wedding is waiting for you!

If it was me and I was stressing that bad I would book a flight to Philadelphia the night before and spend the night. This way you know you won't miss the flight. I have done this a few times. I have booked cruises in January and then stressed out that we would have a snow storm and I would miss the ship. More money but I wasn't stressed.

55 minutes is the norm for connections these days. I fly almost weekly and I rarely have a problem with that connection time. If I do miss the connection, I really miss it (by several hours due to something crazy with the first flight). I would suggest you check the US airways schedule from Philly to your destination and write down the flight numbers and times of the later flights. Then if you happen to miss the connection you can go to the guest services desk armed with that info. If the line is long because many other passengers missed their connection, call the US Air 800 number while you stand in line and you might be able to beat those in line in front of you to the seats on the next flight out.

 

Also, when you check in for your first flight ask for bulk head seats if you are flying coach. These are the first row of the plane and you will deplane earlier than if you are in the back. They save these bulk head seats for assignment the day of the flight. If they aren't available just ask to be moved as close as possible to the front of the plane because you are concerned about making your connection.

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
