Air France managed to destroy my trip to Japan.
Austrian Airlines flight was late out of Tel Aviv. I was sitting in the plane wishing I will make my connection to Paris, as I really didn’t want to stay in Vienna.
A few minutes before we landed I was notified that all connections were confirmed. I rushed to my gate only to find out the flight is delayed.
Again, stress, sitting in the plane wishing I can make the connection. About 10 minutes before we landed the stewardess notified that we will not arrive on time. However, just as we were on the way to gate we received another announcement. The connection to Tokyo is possible. I ran out of the plane. A ground team was waiting with a sign without my name on it. Although I checked-in 24 hours before the flight, I was not on the list. But, it didn’t matter as we were told a minute later that it is too late.
I spent the night in IBIS hotel next to the Airport. My flight was planned for the next day at 10:30 AM. I boarded the plane… YEAH… on my way to Japan.
If you think that my misfortune has ended, think again. My luggage didn’t arrive!
It is now 36 hours after I have landed, and still no news.
I am so angry and tired.
Thank you Air France for making my flight and arrival to Japan so miserable.
