Quite a hectic travel day yesterday (Sunday) as I attempted to return to Michigan early from visiting my son and daughter in law in Boston. Originally scheduled to fly home today (Monday), my airline, AirTran contacted me Saturday and suggested I get out of Dodge earlier because Hurricane Sandy was likely to disrupt travel today.
Thank goodness I heeded their advice as my flight from Boston to Baltimore was the last AirTran or Southwest (Southwest owns AirTran) flight from the city on Sunday evening. All later flights were cancelled. Upon a bumpy descent into Baltimore, the turn around for my flight to Grand Rapids was also quick. This flight was the last commercial flight to take off from Baltimore (BWI) before the airport was officially shut down due to deteriorating weather conditions at 10:00 pm Sunday night.
Hat’s off and many kudos to AirTran and its employees for a great job and great service through difficult circumstances. Did I happen to mention all my flights to and from Boston and Baltimore actually arrived ahead of schedule?
