    I worked with an Australian girl who lived in Europe and had the same complaints about Australians, especially during Octoberfest.

    If they are doing a remake of "The Year of Living Dangerously", JFK would work very nicely for the final scene.

    BTW, every driver in Spain thinks they're Fernando Alonso except for the airport shuttle guy.

    Motherfucker was driving 10 miles per hour. We actually missed our flight out but it wasn't because of his lameness. But still, you live in Spain, why aren't you standing on the gas like everyone else?

    The hike from the B gates to the Delta lounge at SLC still sucks hairy balls.

    New Orleans Louis Armstrong International is a very nice new facility but the Delta lounge is the size of a broom closet. WTF?

    Another trip out of the "new" LaGuardia, another absurdly long security line. For anyone saying the new airport is better, it's just lipstick on a pig. The same old shitty ass pig.

    Seems like all I read about are cluster fucks at airports and cancelled flights. Welcome to the new summer normal post covid. My advise, wait to fly once the kids are back in school.

    I don’t know about that, the price on the tickets aren’t coming down in that timeframe at all. More than three times what I would’ve paid for flights last year at this time. I was really wanting to get up on that Palmer glacier for a few runs this summer but I don’t look like that’s going to happen at $1100-$1500 per round-trip ticket. fuck, the flight alone is now more than my whole trip budget last year.

    You are correct airfares right now are easily double to triple what we paid in November of 2021. Next trip to Europe looks like we'll be using points to fly to JFK and then buying the flight over unless prices come back to reality in the next 10 months

    I've had an unbelievable amount of wedding invites from good friends and family in the past 10 months because of Covid putting a stop to weddings for a while.

    Since last August I've attended weddings in London, Santa Fe, San Clemente, Honolulu and Philadelphia.

    Luckily most weddings have been in desirable places and I was using miles and hotel points, but IDA-PHL was going to be 150k miles per person in economy (was first RT class across the Atlantic pre Covid), so I held onto miles and spent $1300 per person last week. JAC-Munich was cheaper in March than IDA-PHL in June.

    I've got an upcoming wedding in Detroit in August and JAC to DTW on a non-holiday weekend was $1000 per person.

    I have two more wedding invites this fall and I'm not going. I'm done traveling for non-fun reasons for a while.

    You have obviously never met me IRL and are looking in a mirror.

    Our flights from PDX to Amsterdam were cheaper than flying PDX to anywhere east of the Rockies this summer.

    got flights Boston to Denver right before the prices soared at the end of April for a long weekend of spring skiing, paid like $280 round trip... going back out west on a rafting trip next week and paid like $340 one way to DEN + $350 home from Spokane.. fuckin' crazy

    ps. what's the consensus on Spokane's airport (GEG), good? bad?.. I'll report back with my thoughts when I'm there

    GEG is good, easy, a little slow with ski bags late night. My only complaint is the EWU advertising( f'ing red turf!):
