Have you ever missed a flight?

January 22, 2017 12:42pm CST
This never happened to me, because whenever I have a flight I try to arrive a few hours before the check-in. I'd rather be waiting inside the airport than run the risk of being late and missing the flight. By the way, I've seen - at the airport - several people losing their flights, and the feeling is pretty bad.

@VivaLaDani13 There is this movie. Very funny! The female lead has never in her life missed a train and she doesn't plan to in future either. Something about good luck or something. One day she is running away from home and misses her train and then one after the other, things start to go wrong.

@Daljinder Can you remember the name of that movie at all? Is that the one with Lindsay Lohan?

I'd be the same - get to the airport and wait for a while... There is a saying: If you've time to spare, go by air. Never so true in these days of long lines at the security checks, etc.

We missed a flight once but only because our previous flight was late getting in.

When my son was coming home from visiting his girlfriend in Austria last year, he overslept and missed his flight. He wound up staying an extra day in Vienna (not that he minded, he loves Vienna) and had to buy a one-way ticket to the States for a flight the next day. That he minded. It was a very expensive mistake.

@theinvisibleman I'm normally well on time because an air ticket is far too expensive to make a mess of. I missed one flight. I had to leave the house at 5 am to get it but didn't wake till 6 pm and just thought did this and went back to sleep.

I never fly but when I did I would try to be there an hour early just to make sure.

I am lucky enough I guess to be able to say that I'm always there with loads of time to spare. Connecting flights do kind of make me nervous!!
