Vin

I am trying to book 2 tickets, but when I click submit at the end it keeps timing out. Anyone having this issue?

Vin

Update: Called customer service and they said its a new account and it might take a bit for the system to properly register everything. Tried again after 12+ hours and it worked. Thanks Dan, you’re the man!
