Remember to Check In

Since when was checking in on line required rather than suggested? I missed the memo but now I know. Didn’t check in on line for Air France 1:20 pm flight to Florence? Take the 8 pm flight to Pisa and then go by taxi to Florence. Arrived at the airport two plus hours plus before the flight (generally the first time one can check in for a flight in Europe) but no, not good enough. Flight sold out and so are other the others through the day. Don’t argue. Go to Pisa. The next flight? Rome to Milan seven days from now. You can believe I’ll check in on line – at least 24 hours in advance and then keep my fingers crossed. Hassle? Surely but at least I’m missing Heathrow this trip.
