actual stories provided by travel agents :

actual stories provided by travel agents :

1. I had someone ask for an aisle seat so that their hair wouldn't
get messed up by being near the window.

2. A client called in inquiring about a package to Hawaii. After
going over all the cost information, she asked, "Would it be cheaper
to fly to California & then take the train to Hawaii ?"

3. I got a call from a woman who wanted to go to Capetown. I
started to the length of the flight and the passport information when
she interrupted me with "I'm not trying to make you look stupid, but
Cape Town is in Massachusetts."

Without trying to make her look like the stupid one, I calmly
explained, "Cape Cod is in Massachusetts, Capetown is in South
Africa."

Her response was "click".

4. A man called, furious about a Florida package we did. I asked
what was wrong with the vacation in Orlando.
He said he was expecting an ocean-view room. I tried to explain that
is not possible, since Orlando is in the middle of the state.

He Replied, "Don't lie to me. I looked on the map and Florida is a
very thin state."

5. I got a call from a man who asked, "Is it possible to see England
from Canada?"

I said, "No."

He said, "But they look so close on the Map."

6. Another man called and asked if he could rent a car in Dallas.
When I pulled up the reservation, I noticed he had a 1-hour lay over
in Dallas. When I asked him why he wanted to rent a car, he said, "I
heard Dallas was a big airport, and I need a car to drive between the
gates to save time."

7. A nice lady just called. She needed to know how it was possible
that her flight from Detroit left at 8:20am and got into Chicago at
8:33am. I tried to that Michigan was an hour ahead of Illinois, but
she could not understand the concept of Time zones.

Finally I told her the plane went very fast, and she bought that!

8. A woman called and asked, "Do airlines put your physical
description on your bag so they know whose luggage belongs to who ?"

I said, "No,why do you ask?"

She replied, "Well, when I checked in with the airline, they put a
tag on my luggage that said FAT, and I'm overweight, is there any
connection ?"

After putting her on hold for a minute while "I looked into it," (I
was actually laughing) I came back and explained that the city code
for Fresno is FAT, and that the airline was just putting a
destination tag on her luggage.

9. I just got off the phone with a man who asked, "How do I know
which plane to get on ?"

I asked him what exactly he meant, to which he replied, "I was told
my flight number is 823, but none of these darn planes have numbers
on them."

10. A woman called and said, "I need to fly to Pepsi-cola on one of
those computer planes."

I asked if she meant to fly to Pensacola on a commuter plane.

She said, "Yeah, whatever."

11. A businessman called and had a question about the documents he
needed in order to fly to China.
After a lengthy discussion about passports, I reminded him he needed a visa.

"Oh no I don't, I've been to China many times and never had to have
one of those."

I double-checked and sure enough, his stay needs a visa. When I told
him this he said, "Look, I've been to China four times and every time
they have accepted my American Express."

12. A woman called to make reservations.

"I want to go from Chicago to Hippopotamus, New York."

The agent was at a loss for words. Finally, the agent asked, "Are
you sure that's the name of the town?"

"Yes, what flights do you have?" replied the customer.

After some searching, the agent came back with, "I'm sorry, ma'am,
I've looked up every airport code in the country and can't find a
Hippopotamus anywhere."

The customer retorted, "Oh don't be silly. Everyone knows where it
is. Check your map!"

The agent scoured a map of the state of New York and finally offered,
"You don't mean Buffalo, do you?"
