AAAGH. airport delays
Yep, it’s a bummer.Posted 5 years ago
Assuming it’s due to an air traffic restriction, there’s always a chance that the delay may reduce – in which case, you need to find/board the passengers at short notice. If you can’t find them all, you miss your slot…..and re-apply for a new one, which will be a lot later than the first!
They do it so that you don’t take up valuable space in the terminal and so that other passengers can’t see it as well. Now your moans are contained to the plane in the terminal it would look a lot worse for them. Ba****ds did it to me when I had been on my way home for 30 hours once at least the chappy next to me had been on its way for 10 hours more such a joy intercontinental travel.Posted 5 years ago
So, what would you rather do?Posted 5 years ago
Sit in the airport until your slot improves? Which is what the airport/shopping mall operator would like you to do – for as long as possible. It might work, you might get everyone onboard in time, but if you don’t you’re going to be looking for bags to offload before you can go. And then we’re back to square one.
Cos the 3 hours was an official announcment of the destination airport/national air traffic control, cos they had really bad fog. We got told this by my company and his company when we called in we might be a bit late they said oh its been dead a while and gonna be for a while more.
And yes I would rather be in a terminal after almost 10 hours in a car and 10 hours in a plane seat a stroll along the terminal is nice. I dread airports normally as i see way too many of them too regularly but when beiing in a small spot for so long those horrible terminals and a long out stretch on their uncomfty benches becomes lovely all of the sudden.
Such a blessing only flew twice in the last half year abit down on my regular once a weak quota including some less fluent airports.Posted 5 years agocarlosgMember
Last delay we had , get to the airport (me+wife and my 2 half brothers 11+12)check in and then get told there’s a 10 hour delay.Ok fine says me we only live 10 mins down the road we’ll come back in 8 hours , clerk replies sorry sir you’ve checked in now you can’t leave the terminal !!
10 hours with bored young ‘uns was no fun , why they couldn’t announce it while we were in the huge check in queue is beyond me.Posted 5 years ago
