I try to blog in real time so I don’t forget critical details. I was ready to hit publish on this post but had a change of heart.
Iberia and Avios to the rescue. Sorry, Marrakech may be the new hot spot for tourists, but it isn’t for me. After only a night here, I made the executive decision to leave. I checked Avios out of here and found no availability to Madrid. Curiously, I found availability to Barcelona through Madrid. Calling on Skype from a country with terrible Wi-Fi, I spoke to an Iberia agent who agreed to make the change. He noted my account and told me I’d have to call Iberia Plus to finalize it. After a few dropped calls and an agent who said there were no flights available, I finally got her to make the swap. As luck would have it, there was no charge because my original flight out of this overrated city had been changed by an hour. This involuntary change and good fortune got me out of this lackluster place.
