Apparently my gloating about our Toronto trip was too much for the travel gods, so they’ve decided to humble me. AirTran is no longer offering direct flights to Boston (they offered to still take us, but connect in Atlanta – Atlanta?), so I’ve had to rebook our trip in March on United, for double the original cost (yeah, the original was a great deal, but still…).
And why is Amtrak so expensive? Jill’s not a huge fan of flying, and likes trains, but their prices are nearly double waht I just paid for airline tickets. I often check them out when I’m traveling on the east coast, but I never use them – if you’re going to get me there later than an airplane, your prices should at least be comparable.
