Norwegian Airlines nightmare!

29 08 2016

I spent the past weekend in Amsterdam, having a good time thanks the local friends, but unfortunately I missed an awaited seminar in Stavanger because of a chain of unfortunate events..

We thank you for your cooperation and understanding, and we apologies for the delay and any inconvenience

… that is what the captain of my Friday afternoon flight to Oslo by Norwegian Airlines kept repeating from about 15 minutes past the scheduled time of departure until the moment all the passengers were disembarked and taken to the departure hall by buses..

What else could we do besides accepting, trying to smile or joke, and be led around like sheep without any kind of control or power of decision? Read the rest of this entry »

Delay delay delay

16 01 2015

Flight to Oslo scheduled at 21:30 it got now a constantly increasing delay:

More than 2 hours: this means losing the great chance to sleep on a bed tonight but when/if I’ll arrive in Gardemoen I have to find my usual sleeping corner (this time though without blanket, but got warm clothes… and 2 keikogi jackets!).

More worrying is the increasing delay and nobody at the gate with hints of explanation (technical or weather troubles?). Great Dutch service!

Tomorrow practice also will be quite bad. I’m so tired already! If I could get the money back I’d probably turn around and go home… But not a possibility unless the flight gets cancelled…

Let’s see…….

UPDATE – a little treat with the “compliments” of Norwegian:

Unfortunately for most of the people here it is little consolation: the flight will land after the last train and bus to the city have left…
