Canceled flight

I didn’t experience too many canceled flight. The only one I remembered was to Cancun in Spring 1990. The airport was patrolled by soldiers with machine guns and we were escorted to a brand new hotel – they had to hurry up to put pillow case on – for the night.

The weather wasn’t terrible but they decided to cancel, the MU5006 (China Eastern Airlines, 6:40-8:20pm).IMG_3066

  1. A few postponements
  2. They made the announcement to cancel
  3. Issued dinner coupons
  4. Have passengers to hand in their duty free merchandises – long line
  5. Group us, go through the immigration, then up to the bus
  6. Long drive to the hotel, about 30 minutes
  7. Assign room at the hotel

The production to cancel a flight is humongous. I don’t know who’s going to pick the tab – if each flight is being insured. Was the weather really that bad to warren such laborious endeavor?

It’s this time, I wondered the hall near the gate at the TPE (Taoyuan International Airport) and saw a nicely made up cosmetic sales girl trying to block a woman who dressed  like a peasant to enter the doorless store. The customer moved to her right, the sales girl who’s facing me and the customer, moved to her left and on and on. I was annoyed. I don’t think I’ve seen anything so blatantly rude before.

The food court at TPE has many to offer at reasonable price.
