    It's not starting out well. Bloody airlines.

    We arrived at Perth airport port this morning and find out my Qantus flight was changed to two hours earlier. Guess what i never got the email and we missed the plane.

    I have my 12 year old son with me. It's a father son trip to CM for Songkran. He not happy.

    The other thing is we were meeting Nicky my GF at DMK on the way through to Chiang Mai later today. She is already on her way from Ubon so she don't know yet.

    So now we got a air Asia flight tonight to KL and a early morning flight KL to Chaing

    Need a beer.

    So many emails get diverted to my spam these days that i always check it and usually find something from someone that i wanted or needed to see.

    Hope it works out better when you get there.

    Qantas did that to me once.
    They had a home phone no., a mobile no., an email address and a fax no.
    No contact whatsoever.
    I had to overnight and cancel a day of patients.

    It was the last time I flew with them - no wonder they're broke.
    And don't get me started on the old boilers crew ...

    The only reason I go with qantass is I got a few million flybuy points so I fly free.

    I hope this isnt a sign of things to come. I'm waiting TGF visa approvle hopefully next week. I'm stressing. Time for Vodka.

    No SMS? No Online check in 24 hours before departure?
    We are too trusting that changes won't happen. Other airlines same or worse.

    I had it with them as well, many years ago.

    They ran a special Bris. to Auckland and the travel time was right for our wedding, we booked and paid 3 months ahead. had 8 friends coming as well so they jumped the special too.

    I got to the airport at 6.30am only to be told the flight didn't exist even though I had a ticket. They didn't get enough bookings so canceled it. Never got a call or email...NOTHING!!

    I called our friends and told them to check as they were flying 2 days later, sure enough they had a sh1t fight as well and had to change plans to take other timed flights as their one was non existent as well.

    I wrote a letter of complaint and the response I got was lousy ....something along the lines of their staff had gone out of their way to ensure we all arrived at our destination within a reasonable time/same day. Not even a Sorry for the mistake!!

    I have never flown with them again.

    Like you, I ALWAYS check my SPAM account. I've found lots of important messages that were not spam.

    I'm really sorry to hear you missed your plane, Ozzyguy. It is a REAL pain when other people are trying to meet you. It's one reason why I always double and triple check everything at least the day before I take a long trip. Good luck with the next flights.

    I thought Stew said he was open for Songkran this year. I guess the girls had a different idea and have pissed off home?

    But, Noi is a sharp lady and runs a tight ship. Stewart is a lucky man to have her.

    That is that weird game where the guys who are in go out, and the ones who are out come in, and when everyone who is in goes out then that is the end of the game.

    Dunno,that sounds like the technical part.

    I just try to knock them or their stumps over when bowling and smash the ball back at them harder than they've bowled it at me...the rest is up to the scorers
