In today's Ride, I interviewed a staff member for Travelers Aid at O'Hare Airport. For those of you not familiar with it, Travelers Aid assists people at airports with a variety of services, from referring people to hotels to connecting passengers with their families in other cities or states.
I got the idea after I got stranded at LAX overnight last week while trying to fly back to Atlanta with my neice. We were supposed to take the redeye, but she got bumped from the flight at the last minute, so we both ended up spending the night there. And yes, that was about as much fun as it sounds.
What about you? Have you or someone you know ever been stranded at the airport and needed help? The best tales will be published in an upcoming edition of the Ride.
