Today, I volunteered to be re-routed back to Portland, OR. Instead of arriving at noon time, my flights will take off at 2:00 PM here and arrive there around 10:00 PM. It will take me to Atlanta & Minneapolis and then to Portland. That is okay.
For that, I got two vouchers. One $7.00 for lunch and other $500.00 for future air. Not too bad. After a good night sleep without shower (not available) and to do some yard work in the morning, I am ready to fly back to Oak Ridge, tomorrow noon.
Last time, at Portland, I got a $400.00 voucher without lunch. I guess at small towns, people are nicer :). For example, at local McDonald’s, I have been treated very well every time without exception and all I need is a senior $0.76 coffee.
