So I'm not blogging from Phoenix.
Nor am I at the airport.
And no we're not exactly happy about it.
Since I'm a pretty strict rule-follower, we were at the airport three and a half hours before our flight (we were told to be there three hours in advance). Mr. JB confirmed our flight, but when we got to the gate the A.ir C.anada lady said that we had to see at the gate if there were seats.
So we waited in line to be told to wait at the gate only to be to told that we had to get back into the first line. Although the customer service rep was very nice and helpful (I guess she has to deal with stuff like this all the time). We were offered $400 in travel vouchers (not that we ever want to fly on this airline again!) and a free airport limo home and again in the morning for our new flight. They did offer us hotel and meal vouchers, but our house is 20 minutes from the airport and since our luggage is already en route to Arizona, I just wanted to go home, change and sleep in my own bed.
I know that it could be much worse. There was a lady in front of me in line who was trying to make it to Miami for a cruise that was leaving tomorrow at 4pm. Both her and her husband were in the military and they were taking their cute son on vacation. She kept on saying, "At least we have our health" and "It could be a lot worse" in the most sincere way. I felt pretty bad that all I wanted to do was cry (I'm hormonal and on fertility drugs, EVERYTHING makes me cry!).
So hopefully the next time I check in we will be in sunny Arizona. Please say a little prayer for us!
