We were unfortunate and missed our first flight to London, which was on a return ticket with Malaysia stopovers. It was a midnight flight and we ended up a day late. Dumb.
Because we missed our first flight the airline cancelled all remaining flights on our tickets. We then had to re book and pay the current rate, an increase of $1,980.00. Not happy as the original were Early bird purchases at $1,980 cheaper.
However, having booked hotel and transfers for this trip, we were at their mercy,
We would have appreciated a fine of a lesser amount and not a whole new ticket at an exorbitant price.
We tried to discard the cost and enjoy our holiday however it was at the back of our minds the whole trip.
Don't think we will fly with them again. (Was our second Europe booking with them.)
Moral of the story - get your date right!!
