Back to Texas
Saturday, February 25, started out early as we all headed to the airport at 5:30 a.m. to drop Mark and Jesse off for their flight to Austin, Texas. As the guys were checking in, Jesse couldn’t get his electronic ticket to work for him, so we got in line to find out what was going on. We learned that, unfortunately, his ticket had been cancelled. Because he had arrived one week early on his trip home, we had to purchase a different one-way ticket home for him, figuring that he would still be able to use his original ticket for his return flight. What we didn’t know was that if you don’t show up for the first flight of a round-trip ticket, they automatically cancel the return trip too.
Well, that started a stressful hour of trying to reschedule his flight. We would now have to purchase another ticket, but the guys would have to be on different flights, because they had overbooked the seats on the first flight and didn’t have any more available for purchase. That’s when Charlie Weddle from Delta got involved. We saw an agent motioning to us to come down to him, so we walked over and explained the situation. As we were talking, we told Charlie what Jesse was doing with the walk and that he was trying to get back to Texas. Being from Texas himself, Charlie took over and got Jesse another ticket and checked in his luggage at no charge! He was such a great help. Jesse was so excited. He said he knew it was another God moment. Thank you, Charlie. You saved our day!
