Unfortunately none of my connecting flights stories are as romantic or funny as the video below but I have had my share of issues with connecting flights.
My first experience with a troublesome connecting flight happened with by best friend from high school. The two of us and my son were attending my sisters wedding in Ohio. Unfortunately there was no affordable direct flight to Ohio, well let me correct that. We actually had to take a flight into the airport in Ohio, and stay on the plane to go to Kentucky so we could drive back to Ohio. The direct flight to Ohio was to expensive so instead we had to pay a cheaper price to fly to Ohio and then to Kentucky. Tell me how much sense that makes.
The flight there was uneventful. It was the trip back from Ohio to Kentucky when we ran into our trouble. We accidentally took the wrong road and ended up an entire hour East of our city. By the time we noticed and got to the airport our flight had left and we were forced to take a later flight.
On another occasion my husband and I were stranded in Dallas, TX for eight hours when we were trying to get from South Florida to LA for the Biggest Loser finale. There was some weather that we had to wait out in the airport, however when the weather lifted in order to keep everyone on schedule everyone else made their flights while they continued to send our flight from gate to gate all over the airport as we waited for a plane to finally take us to our destination.
I have to say I would MUCH rather have my connecting flight cancelled or delayed and have the fun these two have in this romantic and funny video.
Connecting Flights Video:
Have you seen this video on TV? I have to say it definitely left a lasting impression with me. Being honest the fact that both of them are “bloggers” kinda hit home. I just think the whole concept is romantic and has a great holiday feel. It leaves you to wonder is this a movie? Did you manage to catch the branding? the product? the message?
I did! I noticed that beautiful refrigerator in the middle of the airport from Sears. So what did you think about the video? I thought it was brilliant and memorable as a commercial should be!
