I can understand your disappointment but you should think yourself lucky that you are at least still flying with the same airline.
A few years ago some friends were booked to fly BA
to the Bahamas. They were looking forward to the trip and believed that they would be flying on a BA
747. When we checked them in at Gatwick, they were dismayed to be told that despite booking BA
and paying BA
's fares they were flying on a Flying Colours 757 - seems that BA
subcontracted this particular flight out!
Another friend was so annoyed with CO
that he refused to use them again. He booked his next flight with Virgin only to find it was CO
when checking in - seems like he had never heard of code shares.
