So, after much discussion and finding out the facts around the credit we got from the airline that if we were going to use our credit, we needed to go to Michigan yet this summer. So we booked tickets for the last week of August to return late in the night before the first day of school. However, if you know us at all, you know that it is rare for our travel to go as planned when flying.
We left at quarter to 7 in the morning from Charlottetown. I love living 10 minutes from the airport.
The agents at the gate were very nice and helpful, though and found one alternative for us and then looked some more and found another that got us in to Grand Rapids an hour earlier than the first. So now we were flying from Toronto to Minneapolis and then to Grand Rapids and getting to Grand Rapids at 5:30 pm, rather than at 1:30 pm as we would have originally.
We were also impressed when the same agent that helped us sort out our bag problem in customs hand delivered our new checked bag tag to us at our gate.
We got some lunch in Toronto, got on the plane for Minneapolis. The kids shared some animal crackers at the gate in Minneapolis.
