When that happens, the airline win usually try to provide an alternative service to help you get comfortably to your destination. The Held of air travel is a competitive business, even though maximum flight charges are regulated by the federal government Because of this, most airlines go out of their way to satisfy customers in order to keep their business. The easiest way they can do this is to give better service than their competitors, since the price remains the same most of the time. So, if you ever have a problem with an airline, your first action should be to report this problem to the company. If your complaint is justified, they will certainly try to compensate you for any in- conveniences. Some com- panies have even established consumer affairs offices for this purpose. But, the passenger and the airline may not always agree on the solution to this com- plaint. If this happens to you, the federal government, through the Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) will try to help you and the company reach a satisfactory compromise. In fact, to be certain all passengers are treated equally by the airlines, the CAB has set up certain guidelines for handling more common complaints. These include: 1. Changes in Air Fare. You must pay the ticket price in effect on the day you fly. If the price has gone up since your ticket was purchased, you must pay the additional money. If the fare was. reduced, you will get a refund.. 2. Denied Boarding Com- pensation. If you have a confirmed airline reservation, check in at the scheduled departure gate 10-20 minutes before the plane is to leave and are told the plane is already full, the airline is required to book you on another scheduled flight to arrive at your destination within 2 hours of your originally scheduled arrival time on domestic flights and 4 hours on international flights. If the airline cannot meet this schedule, they must pay you an amount equal to the price of this flight, but not less than $25 or more than $200. This is in addition to helping you reach your destination via another flight paid for with your original ticket but ad- justed for any new routing that might be required. In effect, this means you may actually fly free to your destination if the airline overbooked your flight. 3. Flight Delays and Can- cellations. If this happens, the airline staff will try to help you reach your destination another way. If they can't do so, you may have your money refunded. If your flight is delayed four or more hours, many airlines will also offer you complimentary services such as use of a phone, meals during normal meal hours or hotel accommodations if the delay occurs during normal sleeping hours. However, the CAB regulations are federal. Because of this they refer to interstate or international commerce only. These rules do not have to be followed by air taxis or intrastate carriers, like most of those planes serving our Adiron- dack airport from Albany, etc. But these companies still want to have satisfied customers. So if you have a complaint against them, write to that company. Send a copy of your ticket and send a letter ex- plaining your problem to the president of the company, if the complaint is justified, you may be pleasantly surprised that the CAB rules are followed anyhow or similar compensation is off erred.

New York 12963 \ Mamma's boy gives her migraines By Abigail Van Buren C TfWW CtlCin Trifc—M. Y. NIW SWi^ t»C DEAR ABBY: If I were DEAR ABBY for ten minutes, I would tell every woman in the world not to marry a mamma's boy. One of the tip-offs is a man who is between 30 and 40 and not married. I married one of these Yo-Yos and it's the dumbest thing I ever did. Although he's a steady worker, that's all he knows how to do. I have to get him up in the morning, tell him what to wear, and even when to change his clothes. He's so childish and helpless. He doesn't even know how to kiss. He clamps his lips together and presses them on my lips. I've tried to teach him how, but even after five years, he hasn't improved. He doesn't know the first thing about how to make love, either. It's whim-wham, and that's it. So for the last two years, an hour before he gets home I start to getting a \migraine.\ I'd go to a marriage counselor, but he won't go, and no woman can save her marriage alone. Mamma's boys just want a cook and housekeeper and a bed partner for two minutes once a week. If I could get a job and support myself, I'd leave him. STUCK IN PEKIN, ILL. DEAR STUCK: Nobody is stopping you from trying, (hie woman's leftovers are another woman's banquet. DEAR ABBY: My problem is a small one, but on second thought, are bad manners ever a small problem? My husband and I would like your opinion of this situation: We know two different families whom we invite to our home for dinner occasionally. (Not together.) The minute we sit down at the table, both fathers of these families ask one of their children to say the grace. Abby, am I out of line to think this shows extreme bad manners on their part? I always thought it was up to the host and hostess to decide if grace was to be said at their table. And if so, by whom. Please print your reply. Perhaps these men or their wives will read your column and learn something. Or I may learn something if I am wrong. SOCIAL GRACE DEAR SOCIAL: You are not wrong. It's the host's or hostess' prerogative to decide if grace shall be said at his (or her) table, and if so, by whom. DEAR ABBY: I have a unique problem. I have been married to Elmer for six years. We are both in our late twenties. All my life I have been extremely overweight, but this last year, through a friend's inspiration, I was motivated to lose 120 pounds. (Yes, one hundred, and twenty pounds!) TnMigh'oUt my diet Elfrier never indicated that he approved or disapproved, but nttw that my life has changed as much as my figure, Elmer has decided that he doesn't like the \new me,\ and he wants me to regain the weight I sacrificed so much to get rid of. Perhaps I should mention that Elmer is fat, and we used to have a lot of fun together eating all the things we shouldn't but those days are gone for me. Now Elmer feels betrayed, and I feel guilty, because when he married me he really liked me the way I was. I am torn between staying thin, which I am so proud to be, or letting myself go to please Elmer. FORMERLY FAT DEAR FORM: For heaven's sake, stay thin! Join •Ova-eater's Anonymous and let them help you. And take Elmer with you. They are a great, loving, caring fellowship. If Elmer doesn't flip for them and their program, I'll eat my calorie counter. DEAR ABBY: The incident was as follows: I recently attended_a_jpjujige show. (The entertainers were friends of mine.) Since I had seen the show before, I decided to read a book and listen to the performance at the same time. (I have extraordinary powers of concentration, and am capable of doing many things at once. Frequently, I will watch TV, listen to the radio, and read.) My friends who were performing interpreted my reading during their show as an act of rudeness. I meant no offense, but I have been severely criticized for this. What are your thoughts? VEGAS DEAR VEGAS: I agree with your friends. Even though you may be able to read and listen at the same time (and had already seen the show), the others in the audience, and the performers, might get the impression that you were bored. In the future, demonstrate your \extraordinary powers of concentration\ at home, and give live entertainers the courtesy of your undivided attention.
