I have had very difficult business trips around Europe lately because of the snow.
No later than yesterday was I stuck in CDG
because my flight to FRA
got cancelled. Shortly after that they just cancelled about 80% of all flights out of CDG
. the snowfalls were quite strong, but it wasn't really sticking to the ground and some flights were not cancelled. For example: I couldn't get back home to LHR
because those were cancelled, but BA
was still flying to MAN
Or another thing was that all flights to Germany were cancelled except for TXL
Now the official explanation was that flights couldn't go out of Paris (all day), but why were some flights then maintained??!
Anyway, I was very annoyed and wanted to know if you could tell me:
1.What really happened at CDG
2.How do countries like Canada or even USA cope with the snow. I mean those countries have 4 months of quite intense cold and the airports there don't just shut down!!??
By the way, I got back to London using the Eurostar!
