I think that it's going to be a VERY busy summer travel season this year.
Yesterday, I flew from Chicago to London at 9:10AM via American Airlines, the aircraft was a 777 and the flight was oversold. There were 51 people on the standby list. Some were given seats on an 8:15PM flight last night, but a good many were going to have to wait a day or two. American said that there were really no seats available until Tuesday! Seems the travel season has started early this year!
Since the flight was packed, I wondered how the service on board would be, I shouldn't have worried, it was excellent!
