The last time I flew to california my first flight was late which made me miss my connection- on my latest trip I made it to Atlanta but my luggage did not (it did show up at midnight, but not before I had to buy a whole new set of clothes). That was not the only thing that went wrong on this trip- on the way back one of my flights was cancelled, I asked why it was cancelled and the agent could not give me any reason.
So, I have had problems with three out of four of my last trips. Is this normal for travel in a first world country?
I wonder how bad it will have to get before the FAA and the airlines actually do something about this. I keep hearing that there are problems but have seen no solutions. Maybe we need a network of high speed trains like they have in Europe to give the airlines some competition.
