Quito - possible altitude sickness?

Almost 50 years ago, when on our honeymoon(!), I experienced mountain sickness in Cusco, Peru. Horrible experience, one I'd rather not repeat! Quito, where COPA is taking us (that's the connection to...

Clearly, I haven't kept up with UA developments.

In 2 weeks, we are flying to WY in BE. I think it is an "N" ticket. Would that be right?

legal reconsideration

I wonder what the relevant ones might be. The airline might direct you back to the TA, but if you say the TA hasn't responded, can the carrier decline to put things right? I don't see how they can...

medical advice and assistance in out of way places

I always figure that if you can afford to self-insure, you should do it rather than contribute to an insurer's profits. There are exceptions to that general approach like auto insurance, since the...
