Well today was rather interesting….or I should say very irritating.
I received an email from Alaska Airlines mid way through Sunday
advising us about our gates for departure. Huh? I looked in the email
and somehow Continental had cancelled our Tuesday flight and put
us on a flight leaving Sunday. By the time I got this advisory email the
plane had already left Oaxaca. Huh?? Grr.
It took me HOURS on hold and talking many times to Alaska Airlines.
(we got our First Class Continental tickets with Alaska miles)
I also had to spend time on hold and talking to Continental Airlines as
I could not get seat assignments online. Visions of overbooking and getting
cancelled again were going through my imaginative brain.
Bottom line? We do have seats-but not together. Hopefully folks will
switch with us. So we are here for a couple of more days-nice but actually
inconvenient as we had appointments etc that I had to ask our friends at
home to handle and cancel for us. I am still not sure how this mishap
happened, but I think Alaska dropped the ball. They owe us big time.
Meanwhile yesterday after all the phone calls we wandered and had a
few brewskis and a nice day once I had finished with all the plane nonsense.
Here are a few pics and a movie from yesterdays bus ride!
there must be over 200 steps up to the top!
Joggers were passing us....
