|Tom and Rob trying to figure out Delta's Ticketing system|
I (Rob) kept a journal as we toured around.
Getting there was an "adventure." First, I was on week #3 of sinusitis that wouldn't quit (and brought all the meds with me). I had a backpack of kleenex, decongestant, water bottle, saline rinse, inhaler and trash bag over the entire 11 day trip - and now I'm on week #7 of the same sinusitis.
THE AIRPORT AND FLIGHTS - Our flights were through Delta to JFK airport in New York, then on Air France from NYC to Paris. Then from Paris to Venice.
DELTA'S BIZARRE TICKETING - Upon check in, we had our confirmation numbers, passports and luggage - so we stood in the line and waited to check bags and get boarding passes. Once at the desk, the Delta employee said "You need to go back in the other line and check in at the kiosks far to my left and then go back in line and I'll check you in." WHAAAT?!?! She was about to let us NOT check in and go stand in 2 more lines when she realized we were Not Happy. So she gave in and issued our boarding passes and checked the luggage. Apparently, you have to stand in TWO lines whenever you check in at Delta. How absolutely ridiculous. How inefficient.
