Coordinating Ground Transportation When Experiencing Flight Delays & Cancellations
A flight delay or cancellation can throw a wrench into your travel plans, whether you are flying to an important meeting or taking a much-needed vacation with your family. Even a flight delay of a few minutes can cause a chain reaction of missed connections and headaches–rendering even the most well-orchestrated plans obsolete and useless.
Ground Transportation Issues After a Flight Delay
Many types of ground transportation have drawbacks when it comes to flight delays.
If you have scheduled a traditional black car service or limo service to pick you up, a delayed flight often means getting into contact with the service, who then needs to relay the message to their driver. This is an added stressor for you — and could mean even more added wait time as the service scrambles to reschedule your pick up.
If you choose a taxi service at the airport, you don’t have to deal with scheduling or re-scheduling a ride when you land; however, you may deal with extremely long lines to wait for a cab, plus sub-par comfort and service when compared to a black car service.
If you chose a rideshare company, such as Uber or Lyft, you will also face a wait on the curb while a driver is located and then finds you at your location. Again, although you don’t have to reschedule your driver after your late plane lands, you do have to request a ride upon landing and then wait. Also, like taxi services, with rideshares, you deal with less professional service and less comfort.
