Business travel is awesome; don’t let anyone tell you it’s not. But just because it’s awesome doesn’t mean it doesn’t come with difficulties. You’re often told where to fly, when to be there, what to eat, etc. Not to mention you have to compartmentalize your life and you miss out on a lot at home. Oh and, in my case, I miss my significant other dearly.
And, sometimes, when you think you’re going to be home for three sleeps before your next trip and you find out that your plane is canceled and all you want to do is see your significant other and sleep in your own bed, well… Business travel sucks.
This is what happened to me last Thursday night as I was supposed to leave PHX to arrive in SEA, but weather, maintenance, or the Gods that control the blue skies had other plans in store for me. This should have been a really stressful ordeal, but it honestly wasn’t thanks to Delta’s awesome customer service.
So, I must preface this by saying that I probably do not travel like other people travel. I have traveled a lot and it’s earned me status on Delta. I’m a Diamond Medallion (which means I’ve flown at least 125,000 miles the previous year).
