Are you really going to charge me $399.99 for a plane ticket?
I do not understand why airline tickets are so expensive. Generally we think about plane tickets ony if we are going somewhere, like the Bahamas for spring break or New York for New Year’s Eve. Trust me, these dates come up faster than you think.
The problem is we do not have loads of money to spend on flights and may spend countless hours searching for a great deal months in advance, but still come up with nothing.
I have heard college is the time to travel because it is the most freedom we’ll ever have in our careers. Only, we do not have the funds to travel as often as we would like.
We sometimes see ads for great deals on flights and get so excited! Yes, only $49 there and $79 for the trip back, but only if you are traveling to, let’s say, little old Salem, Ore. from Oct. 12 to Oct. 13. Oh goodness, who would ever want to go there first of all, and then pay all that money for not even a day’s worth of tour guide Barbie, half a can of soda and one bag of pretzels? Plus, they forgot to tell you about the “additional fees and taxes;” you will have to pay for your carry-on bag and donations will be accepted for the “complimentary blankets” as well.
Let me just say to the airline companies that you are making this rather difficult to travel anywhere while in college.
I am a little bitter when it comes to the prices of flights. If you are broke like me, we cannot spend money on a flight for just a few days, plus the gas to drive to the airport, the parking and the taxi to get to our destination all before our trip even begins.
All we want to do is get out of Big Rapids and it is becoming harder and harder to do so. I wish I could come up with a great way to explain to you the ins and outs of the airline world.
I seriously just pray every day I will win the lottery. If I ever do, I will never complain about a $399.99 plane ticket ever again.
