Never had flown NWA so I thought I would give them try as they had the cheapest price for my trip to Bangkok.
started out a little suspect when I checked their web page first thing in the morning before flight
noted a 30 min delay on 2nd leg of flight.
I flew BOI to SEA no problem om time got to SEA
saw now had 2 hr delay from SEA to Tokyo
but I only had a 2 hr connection time "oh $hit"
well the 2 hrs turned into a 5 hr delay.
so i knew for sure would not make connection.
but nothing i could do but wait and See what NWA
did in Tokyo.
as not only me but probably 90% of the passengers where makeing connections
Once we got on the ground they had tables set up with different connections on them,
we went to Bangkok table they had already booked our flight for the next day on Thai Air but at 5 PM
it was 11 at night we were supposed to be in Bangkok at this time.
they also had bus's waiting to take us to our hotel
with food vouchers. It was a nice hotel.food at night was bad but they only set up a buffet to help us out
So we finally got to Bangkok 24 hrs later than planned with our bags.
this is the first time i have had a major delay in over 10 yrs I guess my luck finally ran out LOL
also we were not the only plane delayed
we were on flight 7 from SEA delay becasue of maintence problems we could see the plane in the hanger and the gate staff was good at alerting us every hr
the other flight was flight 25 from Detoit
they had a medical emergency and had to land only an hr after take off . dump fuel then refuel
so all total there was probably 500 passengers who missed connections that night in Tokyo.
some who needed to be somewhere on time
I talked to one girl who was supposed to be in Taiwan
the next morning to march in the opening ceremonys of the world games being held there.
this is not a rant or a rave just what happens in todays air travel. $hit happens and you have to deal with.
so far NAW has done what they are supposed to.
we will see what happens om return flight
and then I will decide if I will fly with them again.
