Today I got the dreaded call from Amtrak saying my May 11 trip had been cancelled. Therefore, I am now booked on a flight out of Lafayette on Thursday, scheduled to arrive at Midway airport at 6:24 PM.
After I booked the flight, I called Amtrak, didn't have to wait long to speak to an agent, and cancelled the rest of my ticket. They're giving me a full refund.
Now I have an extra day to pack!
