Common problems

As we saw in our article on page 2, reservation or booking issues are all too common when travelling, as is miscommunication. Dealing with these and other issues calmly helps to resolve problems, but having someone with you to share your experiences with, to help at times in finding solutions or simply to vent to can be a real help! Don and Angie are on their way to a conference abroad and experience a few notable incidents along the way; read on to find out how they attempt to resolve issues.

Did you know...? Jet lag is caused by disturbance of your body´s circadian rhythm: this means that your internal body clock is out of sync with your surroundings. Despite the many remedies recommended to travellers, the only sure cure is: time!

  • Angie: Did you happen to notice that older guy at the business class check-in counter? He looked and sounded really wound-up, and so did the ground staff. I wonder what had happened?
  • Don: Yes, he didn´t look happy at all and neither did the airline staff, that´s true. I did hear someone say loads of people had missed their connections due to overbooking so it was probably something to do with that.
  • Angie: Well, no point in being rude, it´s not the ground staff´s fault. But I hope for all their sakes that he gets on the next flight.
