We had fun visiting, laughing and walking the streets. My sister likens our group to seaweed, drifting around with no apparent purpose, moved by the tides.
|Cafe du Monde|
We meandered through the French Quarter, stopping for beignets at Cafe du Monde, consuming some tasty seafood and cruising down Bourbon Street.
Good old American Airlines cancelled our flight home and rescheduled our departure for a day and a half later. After an hour or so on hold on the phone, we were able to re-book for a more reasonable schedule. We heard various claims for why the flight wascancelled. Weather. Mechanical. Unable to specify.It wasn't weather. The flight we actually took left less than an hour earlier than originally scheduled and didn't encounter any weather at all. The cancelled flight was probably underbooked. Gotta keep those CEO salaries up. To Hades with the customers.
No problem. We won't be American Airline customers ever again.
