This time we'll flying NW airlines. Boston/Shanghai $755.00 round trip including all taxes and fees.
Last year we took AA, Boston/Shanghai $753.00 round trip including all taxes and fees. The price has gone up more then it looks because last year we paid extra to travel on the weekend.
We would have preferred to fly AA again because AA has only one stop in Chicago. We have two stops with NW, One in Detroit, the other in Tokyo. The AA flights also arrive earlier in the day so we have more time to rest, relax, and eat before going to bed.
They say there will be a non-stop flight between Boston and China in 2008 with the new Boeing 787 comes out. However the flight will be to Beijing.
I checked her flight status to see how she was doing. The status said it was delayed because of unscheduled maintains. It was delayed hours and her connection would have to be delayed for her to connect. She did not have her cell phone so I could not call.
I rechecked the status again and she was rebooked to leave the next day on United Airlines at 8:00 am.. This was awful. She has a lot to do before the May holiday where almost everything closes in China. I was worried because she did not use a pay phone to call me. She also had a lot of luggage and did not have the keys to her home.
I then felt that maybe her schedule was updated in the computer but there was a long line for her to get the new tickets. I went to the airport but did not find her. I went to her home but she was not there. After a while I felt she made the flight.
The next time I checked the internet the flight status said her connection flight was delayed for connection passengers. So I was sure she was on the original flight from Boston.
