Jane — I know it is a drag flying through Dallas (as you fly over Tulsa on your way into Dallas, you think gosh, if i could just parachute out now, I’d be home! when instead you know you still have a 1/2 hour continued flight onto DFW, deplaning, finding your new gate, waiting, boarding the Tulsa-bound flight, then flying the 30-45 minutes it takes to get back to Tulsa (2 to 3 hours after you flew over it the first time!) It drives me absolutely bananas. But right now with this mess in Chicago, that's what I'll pick.
It's funny you posted your question yesterday because I had been reading on Flyer Talk just yesterday as well to check up on the situation. And found articles that as of January this year, they shut down the train service 7 days a week to finish the week (when I came through in November, the train was still operating on weekends).
No how, no thank you!! I guess it will all be better when it is done but my word what a mess it is now. And a person with reduced mobility, I don't know HOW they would have gotten themselves up the steps on the old repainted school bus they put us on (once we finally got there after an hour's waiting in line). Oh it aggravates me just thinking about it!!!
