Default Got to love air travel...

Shopping for a one way flight to Detroit this morning for next week... Here is the joke...

On the same day....

-One way direct to Detroit from here.... $487

-One way to St-Louis with one stop through Detroit (same flight as above)... $232

I guess I'll go to St-Louis and get lost in Detroit!!



Oh yes it's boating related in a strange way!

We had offices in Indiana and Detroit, it was always cheaper to flight from Indy to Japan, then Detroit to Japan, even when we would be on the same flight over.

Our travel agent used to book people from Detroit out of Indianapolis, but they stopped that! They got pretty Shi%y about it.

Trying to figure out flight rates is like trying to figure out why women do what they do,,,,,,,,, never going to happen.

Here’s another one, recently My wife and step daughter flew to Tampa on Air Tran. After booking the flight and paying the fee’s it said you HAVE to pick a seat.

When you go to pick a seat all of them cost extra! I guess if you don’t pay for the seat, they put you in cargo!

Charlotte and Greensboro was like that for years. They caught on and increased the rate out of Greensboro. We would have someone take us to Greensboro and then on the way home we would just get off the plane in Charlotte and get a ride.

If its a round trip Be careful that if you don't take the second leg to St Louis then they will cancel your Return trip on you.

If your coming to see me through Detroit we could always stop in Flight Club for a drink with Ron. He has a 50 foot skater and an awesome strip club.
