The Twelve Months Of Travel: March 2010

Mar. 07, 2010 AC 95 C Class SCL to EZE
* 694 flight miles
Mar. 08, 2010 UA 846 W Class EZE to IAD
* 5,217 flight miles
Mar. 09, 2010 UA 83 W Class IAD to LAX
* 2,288 flight miles

March was below average for flight miles, but it was nonetheless an interesting travel month.

We were keeping our fingers crossed March 5 that we'd be able to disembark from our cruise at Santiago Chile in the wake of the Chilean earthquake and fly back to Buenos Aires. Oceania Cruise Lines looked after us splendidly. Air Canada, on the other hand, offered some pathetic treatment at the Santiago Airport that resulted in a rare letter of complaint from us. An abject apology and several hundred dollars in future flight credits for us made us feel that somebody at Air Canada at least was listening.

We felt truly fortunate to finish our South American cruise and to return home safely to spend some time with our grandkids.
