Easyjet mistake or mine??

Hi

The other day I was getting ready to go to the airport and thought I would check my boarding pass to see how much time I had left to get there. On examining the aforementioned boarding pass which I had printed three days before I saw that the flight had left seven hours earlier.

Easyjet have given me back my taxes and the replacement flight wasn't too expensive, but I will never fly with them again if they can't fly at a time which I expected them to.

Whenever I have flown and the departure time has changed I have always been e mailed in advanced to alert me to the fact by the airline.

I'm sure one was in fact an easyJet flight and I think they text me the details as well as the e mail.

I am surprised if they didn't do this with a short notice departure time change.

There was no change, I had booked the earlier flight ;-((

It just made me realise how easy it is to make a mistake, I'm top of the list when it comes to dishing out advice about checking and rechecking, but this time I didn't check anything.

But I thought I would give blaming the airline a go.

Ha ha, oops is all I can say then!

What made you think you were on the later flight then?

All contributions towards my private jet gratefully accepted. Sadly as I can barely afford to put petrol in quite possibly the smallest car ever (Fiat 500 bright red) I wont be able to get the thing off the ground unless the contributions are massive. So come on dig deep!!

I always get the evening flight, but for some reason I have booked morning flights for my next two trips to Prague, they were probably cheaper. But not in the long run when you have to buy a ticket approximately two hours before the flight which you thought you were on, is about to leave. Saying that it was just under £100 which wasn't too bad.

I worked with someone who thought she had booked Melbourne to Adelaide, time passed, and then the day before she was due to fly out she checked her booking...and found she had booked Adelaide to Melbourne.

Not the first time she's done something like this, so she was able to laugh at herself.

Did you see if your supervisor could do anything?
