Ouch. Those of us who don't tolerate flying well don't need that... Few years ago, I got booked Roanoke-Dulles-SFO-Monterey on the way out, and Monterey-LAX-OHare-Roanoke on the way back. What I *needed* was for my phone to ring while I was wandering OHare rather dazed and looking for something I had spotted in Dulles, and *tell* me "Yo dude, pack it in, you're not in Dulles this time"...
