I've had a pretty awful week which included having a dodgy tummy again and booking a flight to America in a very dittzy way.
The problem with the American flight was that I wanted to fly into New York and return from Seattle. My head is still not right since Davy died. If he was still with me I would have run it by him before pressing the button. he would have called me a silly girl (or something stronger), I would have corrected my obvious error, then pressed the button.
This time I had to rely on myself and, knowing the mess I can get myself into, I checked and checked again. Then pressed the button. When I went over to the office I told them that a single fare was dearer than a return and, therefore, I had booked a return and would have to do the same for my return from Seattle. But. they said, you should have booked a return into New York and back from Seattle. Simples. Why did I not see that myself because I've done it many times before. Dhhhh!!
This morning I spoke to a very nice BA man who quoted £1210.60 for my Seattle ticket. I asked if it would be cheaper to book a return and not use it. He said "Ehh.....No?" Outragious! I asked him to check the next day. Whew it had gone down to £309.60. Now this ain't rocket science. I booked the cheap ticket. Result.
