  • finding skycap service in arrival area

    MY EXPERIENCE ON 03/13/13 AROUND 4PM DELTA TERMINAL #2 ------ YOU COULD HAVE YOUR POCKET PICKED EASIER THAN FIND A SKYCAP. SHAME ON YOU CHICAGO!! AND NOW I SEE THAT RENTAL OF SELF SERVICE CARTS NOW COSTS $4.00. (THAT'S WHAT I MEAN BY GETTING YOUR POCKET PICKED!!!!!

     

    Very few people use skycaps thusly there aren't many of them as it's not a very good way to make a living. Blame your fellow travelers, not Chicago.

     

    well, ZAP, that's not my experience at other airports ---maybe I was just lucky in PHX and ATL. In both places, not only were there Skycaps, they were courteous and accomodating as well.

     

  • Brooch Bouquet

    We are creating a brooch bouquet (Made up of brooches) for a wedding in Italy. What's the best way to transport it? Can it be carried on board and thru security checkpoints?

     

    I assume that if the bouquet fits inside a carry on and isn't made of long knives or explosives then it would be OK to bring through security.

     

  • Can I carry on garment bag for suit?

    I have a suit & cocktail dress for a wedding we're attending and don't want to crush them in our luggage. If I fold the vinyl garment bag in half, it would be 26" high and 22" wide. I'd like to hang them up once inside the plane. Am I allowed to carry this on since it's over the carry-on dimensions?

     

    I've seen people do it, but since it's technically against policy it's up to the gate personnel and flight attendants whether you'll be allowed on with it or not. Whenever I have to travel with a suit I just neatly fold it in my carry on right before I leave for the airport and take it out as soon as I get to the hotel and have never had a problem with it getting wrinkled.

    This is a great airport. However, it needs a low cost carrier such as AirTran. AirTran was at this airport briefly. What happened? It is too expensive to use this airport with Delta and US Air (now American). Jet Blue or Air Tran would be a great addition and I am confident those planes would be filled. We all tire of the drive to Jax and Orlando.

     

    AirTran was bought by Southwest. JetBlue is generally not interested in small airports.

     

    I am totally agree with zap
