So, I got to the check in for my flight at about 6:00 today. The flight was leaving 2 hours later, so we had plenty of time. Now I walk in and they tell me my flights been canceled and that it's rescheduled to 4:15. We go over to the manager, and he gets us a flight at 9:50. Now, that's not what I'm upset about. What I'm REALLY upset about is that they didn't even fucking call me to let me know this. No email was sent, no text, no nothing. So now I'm sitting an airport and will be for two hours. Fucking great

It's a crappy business. When you need to know something, they'll figure you'll show up sometime. If they need something from you, you better drop all plans and bow down. They know they can be asshats to a lot of people and still stay in business.

 

I'd run through the airport in a banana suit screaming the lollipop song while waving a Norwegian flag around. Just blame it on being stir crazy. 

 

p.s. enjoy your flight in half an hour

Well often people are lead to believe it's for the best to cancel because of maybe plane availability, they are mechanical after all.  Truth be known is that most cancellations are due to lack of bookings and merging the flights together.  Common practice.

Complaining about sitting in the airport for 2 hours?


That's cute. 

I often would be stuck at an airport over night when trying to come home on leave, just because I was on standby for so long trying to get a ride.

Turns out it was because the city i was going to was having a massive ice storm and they had no plows to clear it. I also had 3 more flight cancellations trying to go home so I had to stay much longer.
