popelaksmi: Rants and venting...

Reading Iae's recent post made me realize that really what I feel like doing most often in this community is ranting and venting. So if I happen to rant about anyone particular airline or car company etc, A) it's just my point of view B) it's not how I feel about the WHOLE company and C) I understand full well that I could be having a bad day and/ or the agent on the other end could be having a bad day.

I really don't want to offend anyone working for those places, but sometimes I need vent to people who understand what I'm talking about. LOL

firefly319: Info...

I work in a travel agency, and as of Jan. 1, 2006, all passPORTS (Hee) will be required on ALL cruises. I know that was basically said... but just an interesting fact. We had to mail ALL people already booked, and tell them. Fun fun.

can anyone direct me to where i might be able to locate a 4 - 5 bedroom house in st. thomas? the rental period would be for 5 months and it doesn't need to be a beach location.

thanks. :)

bradmessner: Introductions....

Good evening, everybody (well, I guess that all depends on when you read this). Since it seems to be par around here, just thought I would introduce myself:

Name: Brad Messner
Location: North Huntingdon (Pittsburgh), PA
Specialty: Corporate & Government
GDS: WorldSpan, Amadeus (formerly Apollo)
Back: Cornerstone QCX, ResRules, ResFax/Mail, Ticket Tracker

Hmmm, I dunno where to start. I started at my current agency back in 1998 as their IT person, although I loved the industry. Since then, I have definately increased my knowledge and have moved in to Operations, Accounting, Sales, and even Res.

I would say that corporate travel really intrigues me. The profiles, the destinations, the traveler needs. It is all quite, um, painful. :-) Naw, I love it and couldn't imagine doing anything else.

My issues mainly come with not always knowing the travel-side of things so that is where I might pick brains around here. However, feel free to ask me any questions related to technology, scripts, qc, etc. That is my forte.

Okay, this is getting rather long. Sorry about that! Thanks for the community....and keep ticketing!

popelaksmi: DISCOUNT MY ASS!!!

ARGH! I hope I never have to deal with Discount EVER again!!! They don't have a central agent line, they don't have any kind of way to look up corporate disocunt numbers. Every person I spoke to could not help me but to make a completely new reservation manually. Good friggen grief! WHY my clients company has them as a preferred supplier is beyond me!!! I don't have time for this crap!!!
