Tip 61: Don’t Wait in Line When You Can Call for Assistance

No one is happy when a flight is cancelled.  All the angry customers are now lined up trying to get rebooked on the next flight.  In your head, you count the number of people in front of you and the likelihood that there are enough seats still available on that flight. Instead of just waiting at the counter, call the airline’s reservation office.  They too can book you on the next flight and, in our experience, it’s often faster than waiting in line.
