Wow - coolGlobalti said:My brother-in-Law was going to the same conference. He tells me that the organisers are determined for it to go ahead and have organised tele-conference facilities.
That's cool Buggibuggi said:my brother is on a rigg in the north sea. he was on msn last night chatting to me and was moaning because his bosses told him no flights off the rigg for 2 weeks (he was due back this week). i made his day when i told him i was just watching the news and they have just this minute announced all airports open. he was well chuffed.
Still gbb, it's a glamourous life, all that travellin'...gbb said:Its thursday ( i think) and i'm back
Thursday last, trip cancelled for technical difficulties.
Friday, flight cancelled with the volcano.
Saturday, continue working, Sunday is day off while the company try to sort a flight out.
Monday, arranged flight to Munich cancelled...although that trip would leave me stranded anyway.
Tuesday, flight arranged to Prague...cancelled.
Alternative idea of getting to Madrid muted...that went nowhere.
Wednesday, flight to Prague is on, but delayed so i wont make the tranfer to manchester.
Wednesday night in Prague, flight to Manchester transferred (after some preesure from me) to an earlier flight to heathrow today.
Lying, unhelpful airport staff, airlines that wont tell you anytrhing, wont give you reservations, constantly arranging and unarranging transport to and from airports, never knowing if your flights going to go, 4 different sets of accomodation in less than two weeks, 4 different flights cancelled, too many people at work involved, too few people involved when you need them, technical problems at work that took a hell of a lot of working out, constant extending of the car hire, moneys run out so i'm using my own funds...jeez, ive had better weeks
