I’ve enjoyed my first significant trip in over 18 months: Using Verifly to manage all of the covid-related requirements worked really smoothly and airlines were happy to review the app during check in.

I ordered an Uber at 5:30pm – I always get to the point of thinking I may as well get on my way.  Why wait any longer?  Glad I did.  The Uber was fine and got me to the airport at around 6pm.  I headed to AA check in since I couldn’t check in online […]
