Last week, I returned from my second round trip to Boston in as many weeks and a trip to the west coast a week or so before that..When I landed, I breathed a sigh of relief that I don't have any flying booked for the next few months. I love and live to travel, but this past month has been terrible in terms of airplanes! I feel your pain.
