Up popped a notification from the WestJet app letting me know my flight was just 24 hours away. I could now "check-in" I clicked on the invite to see a notice that the flight had been cancelled!
Surely not. Opened the laptop, onto the WestJet website. It was true. The flight HAD been cancelled.
As a seasoned traveler I generally go with the flow when things go wrong, and chalk the experience up as being part of the adventure. Not this time. This time I completely unraveled.
After a frantic hour on the phone, I was rebooked onto an earlier flight. A longer stop over and a bit of chaos but I will still make it to London on time to catch my connecting flight, be on time to pick up the car I have reserved and can still make it to the hotel that had been booked and paid for.
Needless to say my night was almost non-existent with making sure everything that still needed to get done actually got done.
Arrived at the airport with lots of time to spare. First on the agenda, a long, cold pint of craft ale!
