I can't tell you how many times I have checked into a hotel and seen someone having problems because they booked through a service. You also do not get the best selection of rooms that way. Hotels just like the airlines offer the same rates on room with the exception of the bidding sites.
    If you are taking even 3-4 flights a year book with the same airline and join their mileage programs, they pay off pretty quickly.
    And you are the person I want to stand behind in the security line or customer service - seasoned travelers are a blessing....and your advice is spot on.

    I look for the cheap tickets via Travelocity, Expedia, etc...and book through the airline directly. If you book through a third party, you are at their mercy and the airline will tell you to deal with them.

    Check directly with Delta into Tallahassee. Any other airport will be at least 2 hours away.

    That's nearly always the best thing to do. Most airlines guarantee the lowest prices on their tickets.
    "Force fetch isn't about retrieving as much as it is conditioning a dog to handle pressure, in a very controlled environment. It's about putting a dog in the position of having to figure out how to turn off pressure by finding the correct response. This translates into numerous areas in training." Sharon Potter.
