How do you propose going from the east to the west coast without spending 4x2 days in a train? How do you propose getting to Europe or Africa or Asia, ocean liners having been phased out except for repositioning cruises? How do you propose doing all that travelling with so little time, what with a worker's average 2-week per year vacation?Jacques,
The air traveling public is just going to have to someday come to the realiztion that the airlnes will leave them in the lurch and sleeping on cots or on the foor in airport terminals when the weather gets bad.
Better safe than sorry.
I don't look down on people sleeping on airport terminal floors, saying "that'll show you". I feel sorry for them, as most are working stiffs using the little vacation money they have to fly home or to visit loved ones, using what little vacation days they have. What's the alternative? What is your solution?
