This reminds me of my "all around the world to get there" story.
We were booked independently but were using FREE points to fly (4 of us 25,000 miles each) from Memphis to Anchorage on Delta.
They flew us from Memphis to Cinncinatti then from there to Atlanta and then from Atlanta to Anchorage.
This was the week of July 4th...so I was so nervous because one connection did not have a lot of time.
of course, we had insurance, but missing a connection with a child with Autism is not ideal. (they do not handle last minute changes very well)
We made it just fine....but it was stressful.
