Check this out... I have a flight on Feb 26- Wellington to Auckland, Auckland to Honolulu. I plan to be in the Auckland area at this time (1 hour flight from Wellington) so it would make more sense to fly out of Auckland. But, if I don't check into the Wellington to Auckland flight, the Honolulu flight gets canceled. To cancel the Wellington leg of the flight, they would charge me $125. To book a flight from Auckland to Wellington (to catch my original flight), it would be $33. WHAT THE?!
Stubbornness makes me want to book the $33 flight just because I'm ticked off at United for their strict re-booking fee. But then I'd fly from Auckland to Wellington to Auckland in one day polluting the skies with more carbon. Gah!
I think I'll go eat some Subway sandwich now. $3.00 for a six-inch sandwich. THAT's a number I can handle.
