    Travel agents say the stupidest things...

    Kinda slow at work today, so I thought I'd share a funny story of a moron travel agent that called earlier.

    I was trying to get people from several different cities to Jamaica.
    From one of the cities I had no non stop flights, so I was telling her about the connecting flights.


    US Air generally connects through Charlotte, Philly, or Phoenix.
    Those are their main hubs.

    Anyways... the outbound flight connected through Charlotte, and she asks "North Carolina?"
    I don't know of any other Charlotte, but I let that go.

    So then on the return flight it connected through Philly, I told her that and she's like what part of Philly?... ummm... the airport.
    I had to put the call on hold because I couldn't stop from laughing.
    That is probably the stupidest question I have ever been asked in all of my time working in travel.

    There's a Charlotte in Arkansas, Iowa, Michigan, North Carolina, New York, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, and Maryland.
    That is just the United States.
    Many people in MS say they're going to Philadelphia for the weekend and it confused me for a while until I realized they're talking about some crappy little town in MS.

    I bet you have heard a lot of crazy stories listening to people trying to make their travel plans with unrealistic expectations.

    I think we can all agree that most people hold themselves in a higher regard than does the general populace.

    I received an email with some of the stupid things people have said to travel agents (funny, but not sure if they were real). I'll have to see if I can find it to post here.

    Haha, ok... but I'm sure none of those other Charlottes have a major airport in them.

    People always have unrealistic expectations, but those don't even phase me anymore.
    I'm used to those.
    Everyone wants to travel and everyone wants a deal, can't blame them, but most of the time they're not going to get what they want for the little amount they want to spend.
    "I want to go to Mexico for a week, all inclusive and I want to spend a thousand dollars total for me and my family of 5"
    definitely not going to happen.

    And yes... there is only one main airport in Philly.
