Airline Schedule Changes

It seems everyday I read another news article about airlines changing schedules, dropping flights and abandoning routes. Just last week I learned that Lufthansa will be discontinuing its service between Portland Oregon and Frankfurt due to low revenue on this flight, a real blow to the Portland international flight market.

I would like to take this time to remind everyone that it is definitely in your best interest to track and monitor all your upcoming flights for changes. You can do this at your airline's website or through a booking engine website like Sabre's https://www.virtuallythere.com or Amadeus' https://www.checkmytrip.com. Always verify that dates, times, connections, cabin of service and seat assignments are as you planned or if they have changed verify that the new schedules work with your travel plans.

If you are working with a travel professional they will more than likely be watching this for you, but a quick telephone call or email to verify is in your best interest.
