Anyone going to the march in DC january 27?
Edited on Thu Jan-04-07 09:20 PM by SharonRB
The fare to National is pretty cheap right now. $124 round trip including taxes. I'm considering it, but wondered if anyone else is going.

2. I'm going.
Flights were pretty full coming back on Sunday when I booked last Friday night.

If you go, let me know. We've got three in our room at the same place we stayed last time, but if you want to stay with us, we can accommodate a fourth.

I could book my flights today, but it would be great to be on the same flights.

4. I'm on a NW flight on Friday that leaves around 10 something a.m.
Coming back, my flight is full. I'm on the 4:20 NW flight out of National on Sunday. The 6-something was full when I booked also. I'm not sure about the earlier flights. Let's talk tonight or something -- now Crispini is probably coming, too, so I'm not sure about rooming. I told her you might be our fourth, but that I didn't know if you were coming for sure. She said not to worry about it if you were coming and I had already told you we had room. She should know after work today if she's coming.

So, let's touch base tonight.

8. I'm glad you're coming!

Are you off today?

Too bad you won't be able to take the same flight home. You're welcome to come to the airport with us (my daughter is traveling with me, but not going to the march) again (hubby will be taking us), but it might not make sense if you're getting home earlier in the day than we are, unless you want to hang around Metro and wait for us. LOL!

DG and babylonsister get into National just a few minutes after our flight. We'll either cab it to the hotel or my daughter's friend might be able to take us. She said he has a big vehicle that might fit us all, of course that was when we had three people plus her, not four, so I'll have to check. A cab is no big deal, though.

7. I got a pretty low fare doing National both ways on NW
Edited on Fri Jan-12-07 10:24 AM by SharonRB
$124 round trip, including taxes. Of course, I booked through Travelocity. My daughter is coming, but not going to the march -- she's going to visit friends and has no interest in the march. She booked hers directly at NW and it was a few bucks less, but not much. We also both bought travel insurance. Hers was $13-something on NW and mine was $16-something on Travelocity.

Hopefully you'll come to whatever DU meetup is planned so we can finally meet.

9. Absolutely...
I ended up getting it for $118 thru nwa.com. I'll certainly look for you at the DU meetup spot.

10. Yup -- that's what my daughter got
What flight are you on Friday? If you're on our flight we should try to find each other. My daughter has long, bright red curly hair, so she's easy to spot.

11. My flight is at 5:24 p.m. (or something close to that) out of Metro
There's like a flight an hour to National between 5 and 9 p.m.

14. I'm booked on NW.
10:15 flight on Friday, and they booked me on the 4:20 flight out of DC. Something must have opened up. Hope I don't get bumped, but there is a 6 something flight out on Sunday, too.
Let me know for sure about the room.
The flights were cheaper this morning, but I wasn't able to book then. It still wasn't too bad...$166.

Woot, woot.....getting geeked now....oh, oh....here's that bouncy guy again! :bounce:

15. Woo hoo hoo
We're all set for the room. You had first dibs. I originally tried to book the 6 something home, but the diagram showed that all the seats were booked, so even though Travelocity would have let me book it, I was afraid to -- I figured they were overbooking. The 4:20 had four seats left when I booked and my daughter got the last one when she booked last Saturday. Hopefully something opened up and you'll get on okay.

Too bad you wound up paying more. I'm glad I decided last week and booked right away.

I'm getting excited, too. I just hope it's not too cold.

16. It wouldn't let me choose a seat like the flight from Detroit. Guess we'll wait and see.

17. Yup -- they've overbooked it.
Hopefully some folks won't show up -- or you'll get a free flight coupon if you get bumped!

I'm planning to have brunch with my daughter and her friend on Sunday, most likely, before going to the airport. You're welcome to join us. I think he can take us to the airport.

We'll probably have to cab it on Friday -- there are too many of us for him to take us to the hotel, I think.

18. You guys can go ahead and take the ride.
I can grab a cab. There's no reason why you should have to take a cab just because I'm tagging along. I don't mind at all. :)
Gads, I hope I can get back on Sunday. I'll be in deep doo at work if I don't.

19. Don't be silly
We can all cab it. I'm not even sure he could take any of us.
