I though i leave Ukraine and everything smoothly.
But, i am wrong!
Sorry to make you guys feel not so comfortable.
I have to write down else i will my head will explosion.
Actually, there is a delay flight!
The flight departure is 1:25pm.
1:25pm - 1:50pm.
I wrote the previous posts - Meet Thousand of toubles before I back Malaysia.
And, i save it in the Microsoft word.
1:50pm - 3:45pm.
Finally, i leave Ukraine.
I am damn happy for it.
Sure, i meet a Ukraine people who named as Alex.
He is going to Malaysia as well.
We have good talk and he is shipment staffs works in Germany.
His journey is quite compact - Singapore-Kuala Lumpur-Kuching- Bintulu.
3:45pm - 11:30pm.
After arrive at Istanbul airport,
I quickly go to the transit counter to get my next air ticket from Istanbul to Singapore.
I am forget to say goodbye to Alex as well.
Sure, i go to online - check mail and blog as well.
Until my laptop out of power.
I going to have my dinner at the restaurant and charge up my laptop.
Do blogging and chit-chat with friends.
Go to buy some souvenir as well because i found the Ukraine souvenir is damn lousy!
I spend RM100 for the few fridge magnet souvenirs only.
All the souvenir in Europe damn expensive i can say!
11:30pm - 1:30am.
WTF... the Turkish airline is delayed for around 2 hours.
It is really damn tired for me.
1:30am - 2:10am.
We are on board but stay inside the plane.
I meet a Indonesia and Israel old woman.
They are very friendly!
After looking around, i found that Alex is sit beside Indonesia old woman.
We are very "yuan fe" to meet again.
2:10am - 6:40pm.
Talk about the flight.
Please read my previous post - A Letter for THIS airline.
Previously i want to protect his name.
But, i am really angry what happen to me later.
Read and you understand the story behind!
If based on the scheduler, this plane will reach Singapore by 4:00pm.
And, my next flight is 6:45pm from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur.
Indirectly, i miss the flight right?
First, i though myself - It is OK and Turkish airlines will arrange for us.
Because, it is not our mistake - wake up late or stop by immigration officer somewhere.
When i reach the gate, i saw 2 airport officer takes a note "KUALA LUMPUR"
I so grad that they will arrange something for us.
I realize that only 2 people go to Kuala Lumpur only.
Me and Alex!
The officers lead us to the Terminal 2 and try to solve the problems for us.
They check up with the HQ and Turkish Airlines.
Nobody want to responsible for that!
But, a least HQ will refund it for us.
Do you know what Turkish airlines officer said?
He told the airport officer that:
"If you not buy the air ticket direct from us and through agent.
Based on our policy, we are not responsible for any miss flight"
Wah... i am shock for while!
And, the airport officer told us you guy have to buy another ticket by your own.
What the hell!!!!
Airport officer told us, this is what they can do.
They suggest us to book online and there is not any counter inside the departure hall.
We check online and found that there is not any flight for tonight!
Not available for booking!
I feel nervous because i have to back home tonight and tomorrow morning (5am) i am going to Thailand.
I am really pity Alex, he miss 2 flight as well. One is from Kuala Lumpur to Kuching.
At the end, Alex plan to see the Turkish officer.
Both of airport officers leave us alone.
I have one last method is take a bus back to Kuala Lumpur.
I call to my friend John, thank you for his helps.
I found that how i can obtain back my luggage?
Shit! I go to the information counter.
A girl helps me and direct me to go out immigration counter.
And, go to the lost and found luggage counter to find my luggage.
I am waiting - to obtain the luggage as soon as possible.
The last bus is around 11:00pm.
And, i need take a taxi and go to golden horse and buy the bus ticket as well.
8:20pm - 9:00pm
I manage to get my luggage.
I try my luck and to go the Air Asia counter ask for ticket.
Lucky, there are 2 flights back to Kuala Lumpur.
I am quite pay 169 dollar and straight run to the departure hall again.
Gate D38 is damn far away from the check in counter.
It tests my heart beat again. If i die at that moment... who should responsible?
9:00pm - 9:40pm
I run and manage pass gate!
Maybe, i can join the 2010 Olympic at London.
9:40pm to 10:00pm
On the board.
Looking around - see Alex is around or not. Not.
10:00pm to 10:45pm
Sometimes, i complain this flight but it helps me as well.
10:45pm - 11:15pm
First step on the Malaysia's land.
Reach home around 12:45pm.......
Lesson from this journey.
1) Don't panic if you miss the flight. (this is the first time, i miss the flight)
2) Cannot book online if less than 12 hours or more And you need go to ticket counter.
3) If you lost/transit your luggage, go to Lost & Found luggage counter, they will helps you find it out!
4) Taxi driver will let you see their angry face if you take taxi around 11:30pm-11:59pm. Dont take late Taxi!
5) Don't try to use Turkish airlines, it is troublesome and not responsible at all!
