GREAT!  X < > Y,  Richard

P.S. On a non-calc issue.  Do you have a model railroad layout?  If so, what
scale?

Hi Richard, Eric, and all,

 

Have you looked at Southwest Airlines?  I just now checked some

flights for Thursday September 19, and a lot of the ones from Phoenix

to Reno are less than $200 one way (with 1 or 0 stops).  There are

even a couple from Houston to Reno which are less than $200 (with 1

stop).  Haven't checked the return flights, but the day of the week

can make a big difference.

 

My only issue is with getting back to St. Louis after the conference.

I had to pay more ($291) for a flight from Reno to St. Louis on

September 23 because of time constraints on my friend who is picking

me up at STL.  The flight left Reno at 1 p.m., but then they sent me

a notice saying the flight had been changed to 3 hours earlier.

That's the first time (in a lot of Southwest flying) that they have

changed the flight on me; maybe because of the 737 issues.

 

See you all there some way or another......

------------ On Richard's message ------------

Hello Eric et al,

I had to fly (with one stop) from Phoenix to San Jose to Reno in

order to get the best air fare.  The only good thing was that there

was no plane change, but it required additional travel time – 3 Hrs.

total.   Round trip $309.50  9/19 and 9/23.

The return trip was 41% more expensive – reverse route.  Does anyone

have a perspective on the 737 issue?

X < > Y,

Richard

Yes, airfares are extraordinarily expensive to Reno, which is

probably one reason for the diminished interest.  I was waiting for

fares to go down, but they never did, so I finally bit the bullet

yesterday and paid for a $519 fare from Houston.  And that wasn't

even the best flight times (or even non-stop), either of which would

have added more.  I've flown to Europe for that much!

 

Perhaps one thing to consider when deciding locations of future

conferences is airfare, because at least for me that cost more than

the hotel.  On the other hand, perhaps flights are expensive

everywhere now thanks to the 737 shortage.

Eric
