Travel News for the Week of April 12

Hi Everyone,

Happy Easter, everyone!  We’ll all be celebrating a little differently today, but the reason for the celebration remains the same.  If you can’t be with your family today, I hope you’ll be able  to talk or video chat with them.

Here is a great little video about travel from Collette.  It’s it’s worth a minute of your time:

While we are sitting home I thought it would be fun to share some pics of some of our previous trips so that we could remember some of the great times we had.   I would encourage you to go to my Fuller Travel Service Facebook page and share some of your photos.   It will help all of us smile a little remembering happier times we spent together.   Here is the link:   http://www.facebook.com/fullertravelservice

Most of the major airlines have extended their frequent flier status for another year so if you were wondering about losing any status, that’s at least one less thing to worry about.  Many of the major hotel chains are doing the same thing for their loyalty customers.

If your upcoming flight is cancelled or you experience a major schedule change, you can ask for a refund from the airlines.   The Department of Transportation has informed the airlines of their duty to refund for those reasons.
