Taxi decided to get gas on the to the hotel, and what's more, leave the car running while refueling. What's that? You don't care about my schedule/safety? I suppose I don't care about suggested tips.

I've recently been told that fueling while the car is running is actually not dangerous. Not sure I fully believe it, but there you go. I certainly don't see how it is safer... But the delay part isn't cool.

Well if you aren't starting the car nothing is firing to cause a flame so as long as it's already running and you start pumping, you're fine. Luckily if he charges more for the ride, you're not paying it anyway lol

Newbie to delta. Just got gold. When do you find out if you’ve been upgraded?

Hi moms! Family of 4 here, two kids under 5, moving from a large city (Boston) to a small town in CT. Simple question, but curious how others handle this: we are going from being 15-minutes to a major airport to ~2 hours. What do y’all do when you travel? Drive and park at the airport? Car service? Other? And how much more planning does this require? Do you spend an extra night in a hotel at the airport after a long flight home or just deal w the 2 hour drive?
