A Flight Reminder

Aruba Bound
Once you have made your flight reservations, check your itinerary at least once a week.

Though we have notification set up in case there are any changes, we were not notified of time changes on both of our upcoming Aruba flights. We still have 6 months to go before we depart so will not be surprised if flight times change again.

I also check to ensure that we still have our seat assignments. One of the other times when we flew over the Christmas holidays, Delta changed the equipment larger planes and assigned seats for everyone were lost. Again, we received no notification but saw it because we kept an eye on it. Luckily, we were able to grab new seats, together for our family of three.

Unfortunately the people who were not aware of the change were in for a rude surprise when they arrived at the gate. It was pretty ugly with about 75% of the passengers standing on line at the desk at the gate attempting to acquire new seat assignments. I would imagine that it would not have to be during the high season for an airline to up-size or downsize the plane.
