Where to stay near Rhode Island Convention Center
Flights to Providence
Pros: I have no kind words for United Airlines. They abandoned my entirely family (including 3 small children) and hundreds of other people in the Dominican Republic when COVID19 travel restrictions went into effect. While other airlines have been sending empty planes back to repatriate their customers, United canceled all return flights and left us to fend for ourselves. We're still stuck here and never had any help even rebooking with another airline. We've had to spend thousands of dollars to try to get out of here and back to the United States. We finally were able to secure seats on a Delta flight that leaves tomorrow. It's unbelievable that they did this to us and I can't begin to explain the stress this put on or family. All they needed to do was honor their agreement to return us home and decided to throw our lives into turmoil instead.
Cons: They could have done what they were supposed to and not abandon my family in the Dominican Republic to fend for ourselves and destroy us financially.
Pros: Actual travel was OK. I arrived as per any flight
Cons: Baggage policy on my fare rate. Ended up spending about $300 to check a carryon. (proper size and weight) I knew it was not included in the fare, but assumed that I could check it or carryon for a *reasonable* fee. Checkin personnel not sympathetic despite travel being forced by coronavirus eviction. Great fare turned into an expensive full fare.
