Thanks for that Rick, things are changing. This is news to me, much like the direct flight you got from cruiseline air recently. Perhaps they've finally had enough complaints and lost air sales from the old way of doing things that they have found a better way. I hope these experiences are the norm and not the exception. I seldom book cruiseline air at all, I have discouraged it for so long as a result of the way it has always been handled in the past. I may have to re-evaluate that position if these type of results become (or have already become) common practice. Thanks for the heads up!
