Even on vacation

My flight was supposed to leave at 6:10am, it is now 7:15am and my gate has already been switched once. Its a good thing that I don’t have a connecting flight.

Even on vacation airlines suck!!!

FREE trip to Dallas

well…almost free.

Because of the incompetence of AmericaWest, they are allowing me to fly to DFW twice on the same ticket. I was complaining that they had not credited to me my miles and they claim I never appeared on the flight! SO for 100 bucks I can do another roundtrip to Dallas! WooHoo!!

Friday the 13th has struck!

I arrive at the airport and the plane is delayed, something about the toilet not working. They wait 40 min before telling us that the part to fix it is on its way. *THEN* 30 min later they tell us that they will need to put us on a different plane….that won’t arrive for another hour!!!!

I hope this the extent of Friday the 13th bad luck for me….

DFW airport SUCKS

I rate airports by three things:
A) internet access
B) available electrical outlets
C) shops

Item B is the *most* important. DFW has NONE. They suck!

Boeing vs Airbus

I’m an American. I buy American. But why do American products have to suck sometimes? Boeing 737s are so much inferior to their Airbus counterparts. The seats are narrower, there are less firstclass seats….I could go on and on.

Anyway. I’m on the plane on my way to Dallas now for a gig at Lockheed.

What did I learn from this?

I find an opportunity on the MCT newsgroup and get excited to do a gig for a major player via a broker.  The contract is kinda weak, but to get the gig I sign it.  The gig is over three months and the terms are 45 days.  Well, I get an email on the 45th day saying the check will go in the mail that weekend.  OK.  Weekend comes and goes….so the next weekend….and the next.  I get another email that there were some issues in their payroll dept and that the check will be sent the following week.  Yup.  You guessed it, it didn’t happen.  I call.  No answer.  I keep leaving messages and no response.

I may be out a little over $10K, which hurts as this is what I use to travel to my gigs.  No money, I can’t get there.  sigh…..
