That was what exactly happened to me two weekends ago. My flight to KL was supposed to be at 820pm but around in the afternoon, Air Asia sms-ed us informing that the flight was retimed to freaking . Three bloody hours. We have already checked out of our hotel and shopping can only be done until 5 as the shops close at . We were basically stranded at the hotel lobby. When we got to the airport, after checking in and whatnot, we waited in the departure lounge for more than an hour. Bloody hell. The flight wasn’t even there yet. They gave us free food as compensation. But who would want to eat it anyway as I’m sure most people would have taken their dinner earlier before checking in. The flight finally arrived from God-knows-where but we have to wait for the passengers to disembark, their luggage out, our luggage in, taxiing forever as if the runway is so damn big yada yada yada and finally we took off at . That is
Note to self: If I ever travel by Air Asia again, I shall take the earlier flights so as not to be in the same predicament.
Note to others: If you have an urgent meeting/appointment and whatnot which require you to fly, try to take other flights. But if you have no choice but Air Asia, plan well. Take the earlier flight or better still, fly a day earlier. Don’t take chances. Seriously.
The only delayed flight.
