Hi Ginia!! 'Haven't heard from you in a while.
The airlines are a mess as far as I'm concerned. I used to use Delta quite a bit (before 9/11,) but have been using Continental more often lately... for no reason other than my wife seems to like them.
I, on the other hand, find them annoying. Every time I have flown w/them in recent years (once in '98 and several times after 9/11) their fights have been late and luggage slow. I once had to RUN from one end of the Houston airport to the other in boots and w/a guitar case to catch my next flight. I thought I was going to fall on my a*s several times on that slippery floor. They literally closed the door right behind me, and then was over 2 hours late getting home.
But I have to admit to not having any good alternatives either.
