Since it was impossible to know if C’s team would win their last playoff game (on a Saturday) and make it to the Championship game (the following Saturday) we couldn’t really book flights in advance. Yes, we could have done Southwest with no change fees….but their flights were over $800!
The day of C’s playoff game I watched flights go from $353 up to $415. Not a huge change, but still, cheaper is definitely better. After the game and the mini celebration we got straight to work. Me, my mom and two other player girlfriends called Travelocity to book our flights together. When we got on the phone with the rep, our flights were $415. This man seriously took forever to research the flights and secure the one we wanted. He even apologized for how long he was taking. Then after he was done he told us our flights (the SAME flights we originally called about) were now $525 each. What?!? I was livid. I immediately asked to speak to a manager. Guess what they did? They put me on hold and never came back (on purpose obviously). I even called on another phone and they answered right away and put me on hold again. We waited on hold for over 50 minutes and no one ever came back to the line. Travelocity has the worst customer service I have ever, EVER experienced! Hello! We were trying to book 4 flights…that’s a lot of revenue they could have received!
Do you want to know what the bad news is about getting the cheapest flight available?? We had to
Next time I’ll tell you all about what we did in Florida (red carpets included) and of course the game!
