Some friendly advice for Vancouver Canucks fans and folks that work with the team in some manner and have to travel. Stay in Canada as long as you can going west to east and vice versa as travel south of the border is a gong show. I had been very fortunate over the years with seamless travel and service, even during these supposed trying times since Covid, but that all came to a screeching halt the last two days.
The travel gods tried to make up for lost time by piling on everything they could in 48 hours. I spent nine hours at LaGuardia on Monday and never ended up flying anywhere. Long story short, it’s tough to write about the Vancouver Canucks or help with content at Equity.Guru when you’re waiting endlessly at a service desk or riding the subway back and forth to the City after your flight has been cancelled.
Or it takes 90 minutes standing at a counter as they try to figure out what happened to your confirmation. That was Tuesday at JFK and erased any time I would have had in the lounge to work.
Yeehaw! Good luck out there folks. Or another idea … just stay close to home.
