Post-terrorists: Furcon travel problems
I was lucky to make my ConiFur flight reservations on Tuesday, the day of the terrorist attack. I talked with my travel agent again today (Wednesday), and he is advising people to allow 2 1/2 hours to get through the new airport security in effect by mid-October. He also expects all airlines to announce considerable fare increases soon; it's the public who will pay for the increased security. If you plan to fly to ConiFur, MidWest Furfest, FURther Confusion, or anyplace else, it will probably be to your financial advantage to book your tickets as soon as possible. Check with your own travel agents for a second opinion. AMTRAK and Greyhound may see a surge in business.
Mwalimu adds: While we have not yet resumed posting normal material in the newsfeed, this one is somewhat related to the terrorist activity, and somewhat urgent as well. In case anyone is wondering, we do have a few submissions on hold that will be posted eventually.
