We had some adventures in our travels!! once we finally got to Venice the vacation fun began..We will never fly United again....ABSOLUTELY HORRIC EXPERIENCE!!! Cancelled flights like crazy..
I will say this people are ready to travel but the travel industry is not ready for us...It is not for the faint of heart..2 days to get to Europe and for some in our family 2 to get back. We were the lucky ones 17 hours and flying from Venice to Canada and home on Air Canada was the smoothest out of our group..1/3 had to stay overnight in London other 1/3 in Frankfort overnight. The weather was fantastic all thru our trip/ food was great(Italy/Montenegro/Greece)...HOLY GAS PRICES .Italy was 9.50 a gallon for gas and Greece was 10.50 in spots.
Glad to be back on American soil..husband says he will not travel by plane again for pleasure for a while if we are not going by our boat or car..he is not going...lol I hope everyone had a great memorial...on to summer!!

oh boy! Some adventure! Sounds like an amazing trip despite the travel difficulties! Funny how people can have such different experiences with flights. We always fly United and have never had an issue. I wonder if staffing shortages are causing problems. All the flying we did in Feb/March from Newark to San Diego, from LA to Kona, from Kona to Honolulu, from Honolulu to San Francisco, from San Fran to Newark all went well with United, Hawaiian and Jet Blue. Maybe we were just lucky!

Wow, what a bummer on the air travel.Last time I was in Europe my ex wife and I flew PanAm in 1984 NY direct to Zurich.The steward presented us with a bottle of champaign as it was our first European trip.Have not flown since 1992 but my wife now wants to go to Italy next year to visit relatives so I will rapidly forget this post,MOM,LOL.Anyway, welcome home and I agree with your husband 100%,LOL.

lol you are so funny. Yes, as I am sure I will forget our experience as well..and will fly again..probably before my husband..but not on United..they were so horrible to us..I just can not, bring my self to fly them again. We are just happy we had a great trip and those are the memories I am sticking with. You will enjoy Italy. I loved everywhere we have visited. But for now will focus on US travel.

So glad you had good experiences. I am sure part of the reason is the timing. More people are traveling now than this spring. My husband was speaking to a flight attendant on our flight home who was telling him that the American Airline companies let a lot of people go during covid and had a lot of buyout retirement packages..leaving them now in a lurch with personnel and pilots... whereas in Canada they did not do this. We have flown United in the past..it was also the way we were treated during all these cancellations that left a bad taste..just Nasty..lol but we are safe and I am ready for our next adventure...

Hi everyone and a great big "How Do?" to all of you! As we hit the halfway point towards next snow season, I cured some late night boredom last night by reading the observation thread of the January coastal blizzard. Ooh man, some fun memories for many of us and some funny lines of celebration, despair and everything in between by everyone!   Banter Thread 7.0 - Page 14 1f602

I think I recall mention of a possible summer time Shore meet up...I'd be game for anywhere from Long Branch/Asbury on south if there's any interest out there...

Either way, hope everyone's enjoying our recent batch of beautiful weather!!
