I’m getting back to NY through the most asinine routing I could find, just to save a few dollars. The trip went Montana through Denver with a twelve-hour layover, all on the worst airline, Frontier.
The hotels around Denver airport are insanely priced. I’m lucky I was able to use cash and points to stay at the Hyatt House which is located in an isolated area ten minutes from the airport. The hotel is nice enough, but the isolation was murder creepy.
Anyhow, I scheduled a 9AM pick up for the airport. I’m always paranoid about missing my flight so I prefer to go earlier. 901 went by. Then 902. 903 passed and finally we got going.
Three minutes is not normally a big deal if you’re going to the airport on time. If you’re late, these extra minutes can add up. Beyond the precious seconds ticking away, I get more annoyed with the lack of urgency from drivers. Three minutes could easily turn into ten. Add on having to stop at different terminals and you may end up in a panic situation.
