Just a little pre-trip drama tonight.

Went to go online to print my boarding pass for tomorrow and they had switched my seat. With AirTran if you choose a seat ahead of time you pay $15 (for a preferred seat). We went on Sunday night and selected seat 14C. It was an aisle seat near the front. Paid our $15, printed our confirmation and was satisfied. Tonight I got on to do my boarding pass and pay my luggage fees and it had me assigned to 21C and was wanting me to pay $20 because it is an exit row. The seat I paid for was not available to select.

Called AirTran. Person #1 said that it looked like I got on earlier today to check in and unselected that seat. Now that just makes no sense. Why would I pay for a seat then un-select it. And why would they let me? If you can do that then people would select them then go in within the 24 hour free period cancel it and take a free seat. She told me my $15 had been returned to my account. She also said that seat was taken and I could either take the exit row seat or a seat in Row 18. That is when I turned it over to the guy lurking over my shoulder. He got loud (not out of control - but loud) with her. Then asked for her supervisor.

Person #2 said it appeared to be a computer glitch but that he could not move me to my original seat even though Danny insisted that I had a receipt/confirmation showing me in that seat. Got a little loud with him too and asked for his supervisor. Danny explained to him that I could not have an exit row seat because due to my transplant I did not meet the requirements for lifting 50 pounds. And that we selected the priority boarding and paid for it, and refunding us the $15 was not acceptable enough since we would not have time to use it before it expired. When that got nowhere he asked for his supervisor.

Person #3 came on after a lengthier hold than the first one, and immediately offered to put me in a business class seat and asked if I preferred aisle or window. I said I didn't care as long as it wasn't a middle seat. In business class they only have 2 seats on each side so a middle seat was not an option anyway.

So now I am in 3C, which is the last row in business class - may not have been the best choice now that I think about it since I don't know if those seats recline. But I never recline my seat anyway so I guess that doesn't really matter. I hate when the person in front of me reclines especially if I have the tray down, so I typically don't do it myself. And since it's a non-stop flight only lasting about 2 1/2 hours, it's not that big of a deal.

Hopefully the return flight will be drama-free and the seat that I have already purchased for that one will still be there when it is time to check in.



In 24 hours I should be settled in to my room!

Today's the day - leaving in a little over an hour!

Looking forward to seeing lots of....


















Wow - I didn't really intend to have nothing but Pirate hats....I just went through my "hat folder" and copied everything I didn't think I had already used yet. Guess my Jack Sparrow obsession has carried over to the boys....
(Did you see the "hidden Jack?")





No More Hat Days to go!

In The lobby at wilderness lodge waiting for our ADR at whispering canyon. It's been a wet trip and a hot trip, and despite Dannys incessant need to skip the attractions but not the bathrooms, it's been a good trip Still have 3+ days left!
