I couldn't stop posting for the night without sharing a few tidbits from the trip. What could've been major problems turned out just fine.First, we arrive at Islip airport (Long Island's airport, very close to home), to check in for our flight to Florida. There was a very good reason why the line was so short---the flight didn't exist!The agent informed me that the flight had been cancelled weeks prior (no, I never did call to confirm...silly me). I told them they had to get me to Orlando and the fact that they never notified me was inexcusable (yes, I did make a scene). ; )The agent scrambled with the computer a bit and told me that they could get me on a flight from Kennedy Airport 2 hours later, and they would pay for a limo to get us there. I said, that would be fine, but I wanted the tickets upgraded to first class for my inconvenience. She did, and the flight was fantastic. Okay, everything was fine until we land in Orlando, and go to get our rental car where we're told that they were sorry, but had no cars at all.I went nuts.To make a long story short, I told them how this would work. Since they had been paid in advance, and I was stuck with no car, "THEY" were going to:1. Pay for a taxi to my resort, and pay for a taxi back to the rental car place in the morning when I would show up at 9 am. 2. They would upgrade my car to a premium car.3. They would not charge me for a full tank of gas for my inconvenience.4. They would give me the name of the manager who would take care of all this in the morning, so I would not be waiting on any lines (I knew that there would be a mob of people in the same situation, and I wasn't going to be wasting my vacation time standing on lines for a car that they owed me).They agreed to all of my demands, and it worked out just this way. And the car was great!And I felt like I got my revenge. Woohoo! : )Tony...but I still am...Off2Aruba
