How to Skip the Line and Instantly Book a New Ticket When Your Flight Is Cancelled
A couple of weeks ago I attended the Phocuswright Conference in Los Angeles, where I discovered some incredible travel tech companies. One them is called Freebird, which offers an insurance tool for cheap. You know how I always say that time is of the essence if your flight is canceled or significantly delayed. There just aren’t that many seats available these days, and savvier travelers are quicker to jump to get in line and call and tweet the airline while standing there. Or go to the airline club. However, I’m now going to need to add the Freebird service to the top of my cancellation/delay to-do list. It’s a first-of-its-kind mobile rebooking tool that empowers travelers to skip the line and instantly book a new ticket—on any airline at no additional cost—in the event of a flight cancellation, four-hour delay or missed connection.
