Still no Jessica Alba?
I'll use that as my excuse for not attending, and not the fact I live in Toledo and just spend over $500 on my ticket to Newport News for Thanksgiving, and the flight goes Toledo - Chicago - Atlanta - NN. With such a messed up schedule I don't dare do anything but carry on my bags, which means I have to pick up shaving cream and toothpaste in NN.
I would rather run a slightly higher risk of my plane blowing up than deal with all the new hassles.
