My worst landing experience was not landing...
We tryed takeoff in DEN
on a AA
, I think it was a MD80. The winds were turning pretty much (captain said this), so we lined up on one runway, then exited, to the next runway...we lined up on maybe 3 different runways, with a lot of taxiing...took us helluva lot of time. and fuel...so approaching ORD
, captain called again, with the news, that ORD
wa closed due to storms, so we were send to Madison, Wisconsin, were we spend hours on board, while the Airline, the captain, and the managers of the airport negotiated about fueling, as this was no airport under contract with AA
...when we reached ORD
after the steepest climbout I've ever been on, our connection to FRA
was gone, so we were stacked in a crappy last row middle seat of BA
, no exeit seats, no windows, as we booked..., we had to wait for 3 hours in LHR
for our connection to FRA
. It was nice, to turn 2 flights in actually 4 of them, but the trip was just shit, as I can not sleep on planes...what a nice ending to a great vacation...everything we were offered was an excuse which was even not very heartly...no coffee no nothing anywhere...
, our driver did not listen to his answering machine, he drove to the airport and waited pretty long, drove back, drove to the airport and waited for us to come. Was his fault, but he was jsut pissed off...
His waiting grew longer as we were missing some luggage. They looked it up on the computer and said, they would fly it into STR
and deliver it to our home 2 days after our arrival. This really happened, but it was just shit...
The vacation started great though, I sat on a AA767, exit row, plenty of space, a hottie beside me...that was totally different to the ending of the vacation...
