Why I hate flying, reason #214

Does anyone else think it’s completely unfair that airlines have the right to change your flight itinerary at any time they choose? David & I bought our Christmas tickets to Michigan way back in January through Orbitz. Since then, our flight itinerary has been changed three times – always to more inconvenient times, such as arriving 4 hours later and leaving 3 hours earlier than we had planned and increasing the layover between flights to 7 hours…

I paid (a lot) for the certain times and flights that we wanted. Why can’t the airlines respect that??? I’m already not liking Lufthansa even though I haven’t flown with them yet…

    Oh wow, that’s crazy! My recent tickets changed several times in the weeks before I left, but only by a few minutes each time.

    I didn’t realise that the airlines could just change your flights around! What a pain!

Why is Jennie no longer in France?

I created this blog in September 2006 when I moved to France from Michigan to teach English. Many of the earlier posts are about my personal life in France, dealing with culture shock, traveling in Europe and becoming fluent in French. In July 2011, I relocated to Australia to start my PhD in Applied Linguistics. Although I am no longer living in France, my research is on foreign language pedagogy and I teach French at a university so these themes appear most often on the blog. I also continue to post about traveling and being an American abroad.
