Name of Airline:AMERICAN AIRLINESAirline ServiceExcellent
Airline Comments:BOOKED THE TICKET THRU FINNAIR, SERVICE PROVIDED BY AMERICAN AIRLINES. DUE TO THE FACT THAT I BOOKED THRU FINNAIR, MY MILAGE PLAN NUMBER (ALASKA AIRLINES)DO NOT TRANSFER TO AMERICAN RESERVATIONS. SEEING AS MY KNOWN TRAVELER NUMBER IS TIED TO MY MILAGE PLAN NUMBER, MY INITIAL BOARDING PASS DID NOT SHOW TSA PRECHECK - A POTENTIAL NIGHTMARE AT JFK... AMERICAN AIRLINES CUSTOMER SERVICE FIXED IT IN SHORT ORDER. THE WAIT IN GOING THRU SECURITY WAS LESS THAN 5 MIN... AMAZING CONSIDERING THE SIZE OF THE LINE I COULD HAVE BEEN REQUIRED TO GO THRU.

Summary Remarks
Problems of Hunt:
Highlights of Hunt:MEETING NEW PEOPLE, SEEING NEW PLACES. THE HUNT WAS NOT AS MUCH ABOUT THE SIZE OF THE ANIMAL, BUT A NEW EXPERIENCE. ACCOMIDATIONS WERE AMAZING, FOOD WAS GREAT, UNMATCHED HOSPITALITY AT ALL TIMES. GAME WAS EVERYWHERE. THE FALLOW WERE IN FULL RUT, MOUFLON WERE JUST STARTING TOO CHASE FEMALES.
Equipment Recommendations:
Would You Recommend This Hunt to a Friend?yes
Why?VERY FRIENDLY ATMOSPHERE,VERY KNOWLEDGABLE OF THE TARGET AND OTHER SPECIES, ACCOMODATIONS AND HOST (LAND OWNER) WERE AMAZING, ESPECIALLY FOR A NEW INTERNATIONAL HUNTER. BEING ONLY MY SECOND INTERNATIONAL HUNT EXPERIENCE, COULD NOT HAVE GONE SMOOTHER.
