my visit to Majorca

A visit to Majorca was planned but did not work out quite like other peoples. usually it only takes about two hours to get there – it took me two days. I was flying Heathrow to Geneva and thence to Palma. The flight was delayed and delayed, what was happening?

I looked at the board again and again and every flight but mine had a gate number or boarding listed. Eventually it said we were delayed, then we got loaded and sat at the end of the runway for ages, we had obviously missed our slot.  Once we got going, my thought was I might make the connection, please!! Then the Stewardess came and told me I had to see the Ground Staff when we arrived in Geneva.

I went and saw the first Ground Staff I came across and they produced a bit of paper from under the counter and told me I was booked in to an hotel, dinner and breakfast both provided and that the next morning I was flying to Zurich and then Palma.

So there was my two day flight to Majorca. Still I have to say my gorgeous daughter was there to meet me.

One thought on “my visit to Majorca

  1. I might add that she also arrived in a wheelchair! She thought her suitcase had been mislaid in all the missed connections and the ground crew felt so sorry for this slightly distraught woman, that they popped her into a chair. Gave me a bit of a fright, I can tell you!
