Seattle Series part 2


Fifteen minutes later the Pilot makes another announcement to tell us we can get off the plane. There was a problem with one of the thrusters. The airport does not have their own repair crew so it would be a while for a crew to show up with the parts. By now I am beginning to wonder if someone is trying to tell me something. I forgot to mention the reason we are going to Seattle is for a cruise which we were also notified had mechanical troubles and would not be going to all of our scheduled ports. Most of us get off the plane. I am very concerned. I have been around planes my father was a pilot and to me this is a serious repair. I tried to get the airlines to send us on another flight. We have a connecting flight and it is looking like we will miss it. No luck, we are told we should be there on time.

Finally we all get back on the plane and safely arrive in Baltimore nearly two hours past our scheduled arrival time. Even though I had my Airport map we were left off at a different gate the signs in that Airport are not clear. We headed the wrong direction and had to turn around. Finally we arrive at the correct gate where the plane is already half loaded. Again we had priority boarding but it did us no good. I am especially tired of seeing people roll up in a wheel chair or push the chair full of bags to get the best seat. Then, they arrive and run off the plane leaving the chair behind practically knocking over everyone on the way. We will be landing at SEA TAC soon. I hope our ride got the update that our arrival is going to be late there also. ( To be Continued….)Alaska Cruise 002


About Atouristlife

I have moved a lot in my lifetime. I also love cars, so loving travel is logical. My first attempt at being my own travel agent came after an exasperating experience in 2001. I had booked a Disney Vacation Package it was to be our first far away vacation as a family and my children’s first visit to Disney World. Through our travel agent I made the arrangements which included a direct flight, transportation, and our hotel with trip insurance. We were scheduled to fly out in November 2001 but then September 11th happened and that changed everything. First there were a lot of air restrictions besides being afraid to travel. I made some calls to see what would happen and found out the flights would be changed. The regulations no longer allowed for any direct flights due to concerns of hijacking and carrying too much fuel. I called the travel agent to cancel and was told the insurance did not cover that type of cancellation. I was furious. What was the point of paying for the Insurance? I was told we could possibly call the airlines for a credit and drive, which was not an option. After weeks of worrying we made the trip. The flight originally was 4hrs but now took 21 hrs but we had a great time. From then on I am the only one in charge of my travel arrangements. Insurance is still a very smart purchase as long as you are educated on what it covers and choose the best option for you.
