I really enjoyed my four days in Oklahoma City with my parents! We had a great time losing money at the casino, going to a movie, eating wonderful food, and playing lots of game shows together on TV. Even though I'm a fairly loyal American Airlines flyer, I decided to try out the relatively new ExpressJet airlines this time, since they have the only direct non-stop flight from Austin to Oklahoma City. The flights went well and on-time, and it was so nice not stopping in Dallas to switch planes! On the way back I even gate-checked my bag, which made things even faster. Even better, when I was at the airport to catch my return flight, I heard the American travelers were all delayed an hour due to weather in Dallas, but I was able to get home on time. So far the convenience has me sold, so I think I'll keep ExpressJet in mind for my Christmas flight!
