|Two winter trips.
In January from New Hampshire to
Boston’s Logan Airport and on to Morocco.
In March from New Hampshire to
Boston’s Logan Airport and on to Rome and Tuscany.
We had been there before, grappling
with frustrations and aggravating scenarios at Logan,
coping with the elements - - snow, wind, rain, sleet,
schlepping baggage, hunting for a place to park, paying
But we knew there was the alluring
alternative: PREFLIGHT PARKING!
The jolting January jaunt down from
New Hampshire went without incident. We parked our car
in the PreFlight lot. We were picked up in minutes by
the friendly driver in the PreFlight bus. He loaded our
considerable luggage and whisked us to our terminal at
The return, however, was more of a
challenge. We cleared customs, collected our luggage and
stepped outside into the cold. It was snowing lightly
and there was already several inches of the white stuff
on the ground. But before we could catch a chill,
PreFlight was there -- as good as its word. The driver,
a loyal Red Sox fan named Danny Miller, hoisted our now
even more sizable luggage onto the racks.
We wondered about the state of our
vehicle which had been standing out in the cold and rain
and snow for a couple of weeks.
“Not to worry,” said the friendly and
competent Danny. "I have a shovel to get you out if need
be and booster cables if your car won't start."
As things turned out, the car started
up right away, but we did need the shovel which Danny
swiftly put to good use. With a path cleared and a car
free of snow -- he even had special gloves to clear off
the windshield -- we exited the lot unscathed, relaxed,
and thankful that once again, we'd chosen PreFlight
In March, it was another “no sweat”
and seamless experience. We had the routine down pat and
so did the guys at Boston PreFlight. We drove the two
hours plus to the parking facility. No sooner did we
exit our automobile and open our trunk, when the bus
pulled up. It was Danny Miller once again, replete with
smile and friendly service. Within minutes we were at
the Logan terminal ready to check in and board our
Swiss International Airlines flight to Europe.
Same scenario 12 days later. Coming
off a late night return flight, we happily spotted the
PreFlight bus minutes after we exited the terminal where
another but equally pleasant driver helped with our
luggage and drove us to our car.
In these opening years of the 21st
century, air travel is fraught with frustrations.
Thankfully, PreFlight provides a welcome buffer and
balm. It is a streamlined, carefully thought-through
operation that cuts the stress and makes the experience
They really live up to their claims
that there is always room to park, that coach service
comes every five minutes, that security is top notch and
every site is staffed 24/7.
