Flying out of Mid-Continent
Flying out of Wichita’s Mid-Continent Airport is still a very expensive proposition … at least for my destinations.
My wife and I wanted to see our new granddaughter before my son and his family moved to Germany for three years. Scott lives in Montgomery, Alabama. Shelley found the best air fare with Southwest. She planned a journey that involved an early-Saturday drive to Kansas City’s airport … leaving the car in a covered parking lot … and flying to Chicago and then Birmingham. My son drove 80 miles to Birmingham to pick us up at the airport there.
Three days later we reversed the sequence to get home.
It was a little inconvenient, but we made the trip for half what we would have spent on a flight out of Wichita.
Frankly, we’ve never found very good air fares for traveling to the destinations we choose. That’s why I’m hopeful that Southwest Airlines’ arrival in Wichita may ease some of the pain.
Our thought for today is from Robert Louis Stevenson:
“To travel hopefully is a better thing than to arrive.”
