When Travel Plans Change, Make it Work!

When Continental Airlines changed my flight from a direct overnight to Paris to Newark I freaked!  Instead of leaving in the late afternoon and flying direct, I would have to leave my house at eight o’clock in the morning and would not leave Newark until 6ish that night.  Nightmare! 

My solution?  The Project Runway Tim Gunn approach to last-minute changes – “Make it work!”  I switched my flight to leave a day earlier when there is still a direct flight scheduled.  Ha!  Take that Continental.  They did not charge me a change fee as it was their mistake and now I get one more day in Paris!  Thanks Continental – well, sort of.

    Awesome!!! Great solution! Keep me in mind for future Gal
    Pal trips, BTW. I am trying to become self-employed and earn more
    $$$, which would allow me to go anywhere I wanted when I wanted as
    long as I have the cashola!

      Thanks Kelly for the positive comment! Are you still teaching or have you gone rogue?
      🙂
