Advantage Car Rental and Driving in Rome – A Warning!

In the U.S.A., I had a very similar experience with Alamo, and some truly appalling ones with British Airways and US Air. We all have travel stories. Like many of life’s misadventures, the stories are hilarious over beer after enough time has passed to cool tempers.

But I hold grudges. I still won’t fly British Airways. Or US Air. On the other hand, Aer Lingus, KLM, and SwissAir were all absolutely wonderful. I get misty remembering America West. They never served a meal but would serve you all the booze you wanted. I found myself ordering Bloody Marys for the celery stick. The layover in Las Vegas made it more than worthwhile because 2 hours of slot machines while a little drunk made that trip way better than average, even though I had the flu. — I tried to get them to hold the flight because I was doing very well and needed a sack to bring home all the quarters. Alas, I had to continue to Boston or remain in the casino until the next connecting flight. Sadly, I said goodbye to Vegas.
