Schedule changed by THIRTEEN DAYS

Just got an email from Airtran notifying me that my return flight from Bermuda changed from July 8 to July 21. This is totally absurd. Has anyone else seen such a thing?

What did FL say when you called them?

Most likely an IT glitch more easily solved with a quick call rather than an FT conspiracy.

Changed it to another date free of charge. Apparently the flight was cancelled. And good riddance it was bermuda to bwi, bwi to albequerque, albequrque to houston, now direct bwi to houston on the way back.

ORC is Original Routing Credit. However, on AirTran, you would receive one A+ credit on a one way trip whether it is non-stop or has three legs. So, ORC wouldn't matter.

Enjoy your trip!

It's a reward ticket so no ORC here.

They did it again. They took a 1 stop flight to Bermuda and made it into a 2 stop overnight flight. This is ridiculous.
