had mainly disappointing swaps.
March 1993 the first A-340 Lufthansa tested on Athens-FRA
broke so they sent the A-300 instead. grrr
Feb 1995 the MEA 720 broke down and we flew a 707 Beirut-Larnaca instead. Fine as I flew the exact 720 already
Nov. 1995 my Icelandair 757 was stuck in the north so Icelandair put me on a direct L-1011 flight of Royal Jordanian JFK
July 1998 the US Airways DC-9 was substituted for a F-100. I preferred the DC-9 as I never flew it yet then.
May 1999 the special chosen DC-10 flight DEN
turned out to be a 757, grr
Oct 2000 the MX
727 M EX-Huatulco was swapped for a 320. *sob*
Febr 2001 due to tight connection I was placed on a direct 717 HOU
instead of the DC-9 connections at ATL
. I preferred the AirTran DC-9 as I flew on the 717 already.
april 2001 the F-70 TXL
broke down and we got a 733, neutral
May 2001 the special chosen FH
-227 flight of Aerocaribe CUN
was a J-31, grr
Sept. 2002 We missed the connection onto the Air France 777 and I was put on a Delta 777 instead (also missing a connecting AM MD
March 2003 the EK
777 in the schedule between DXB
and MCT turned out to be a A-332 again
So on 300 flights quite some swappings and complications, of which the most I was disappointed about. (but I am the kind of traveller who chooses planes and routes for their *rareness* so have the risk of getting disappointed). Once I could avoid a swapping, when my especially chosen L-1011 flight ATL
was swapped to an MD
-88 and I asked to be placed on a later L-1011 flight that day, which was fine.
