Rule 240? No dice.

I called up continental. Every flight into and out of Houston, Texas prior to 2pm was unconditionally canceled. This includes my flight. Unfortunately, since the cause was weather (as opposed to overbooking, mechanical malfunction, etc.), Rule 240 does not apply – so I had no dice getting my Continental fare transferred to another airline that didn’t have to go through Houston.

Eventually, they found a flight. 3pm departure from Indy, 8:06pm arrival in SJC. This is a 9 hour delay from my original arrival time. Very, very no bueno.

So, I took the flight as a contingency, and immediately loaded up (shameless plug – thanks guys!), and booked a US Airways flight from Indy to Charlotte (wrong way!) to SJC, leaving and arriving only 1 hour later than my original flight.

Diving catch number 67 of this god-forsaken trip.

I need a new personal adviser to tell me “hey, dip shit. Don’t fly to the east coast (/mid west) just before a hurricane hits the gulf coast.

Especially when the words Houston, Texas are printed all over your itinerary.

Flight Plans

In order to come home tomorrow, I fly through Houston, Texas tomorrow. Unfortunately, so does Hurricane Ike.

One of us needs to change plans…
