[quote name='caribill']Reminds me of an airline experience once.
A co-worker had a ticket to go from Houston to Charleston, WV with a change of planes in Pittsburgh. For those unfamiliar with the geography, Houston is in the southern part of the USA and Pittsburgh is north of Charleston.
As a business traveler, this was the highest priced coach ticket at the time.
The flight from Pittsburgh to Charleston was cancelled due to weather and he rented a car to get home that night.
When asking the airline for a partial refund for not getting him to the booked destination, the airline said there would be no refund. Reason was that Pittsburgh was further away from Houston than Charleston and thus the airline had flown him further than contracted for.[/quote]
I'm sure that the airline would have rescheduled a flight after the weather cleared. He probably didn't want to wait and decided to just drive home, which makes sense. You can't blame weather delays on the airlines!!
