Once again, Air Canada flight attendants and I are counting on being in the air at the same time. At least I hope they have everything settled before I take off for Saskatoon in a couple of weeks.
I love having the flexibility to pick the cheapest and most convenient times and flights. (It was the subject of my very first blog post back in June.) But I hate the thought that for a second time I might have a quick trip to the west compromised by AC management's hard line. Does their aggrieved staff know when I am visiting my daughter and do they plan their workplace protests accordingly?
If my trip is spoiled, however, it will not wreck my holiday plans irrevocably. We retirees can be flexible up to a point.
The kid I am visiting (who has to get special time off) might not feel so sanguine, of course.
