Travel Wish Lists and Woes

Posted Friday, February 8, 2008

Let's face it - flying is no longer fun. A short hop from Cleveland to Chicago can take all day. You have to buy your own food, pay for water, and now one airline wants you to fork over 25 bucks to check a second bag. What if the airport was nicer, more like a shopping mall, would it be so bad to wait for three hours? Cleveland Hopkins will soon be getting a face lift with high end stores and better food. What else do travelers want? Travel woes and wish lists ... Friday morning at nine on the Sound of Ideas.
