It’s irritating when someone announced that your flight was canceled. You need to go through a lot to reschedule the trip. Before you panic or overreact, you need to think clearly. These are some of the things to avoid so that you can finally leave and have a safe trip.
Never leave the
gate unless you are told to do so. You need to stay there up until you receive
further advice. Airport and airline representatives will give announcements on
that area. If you’re not there, you will be behind everyone else. Perhaps, they
will find a new plane to carry you and the rest of the passengers if you wait
for a while. It’s also possible that you will be booked for free in a hotel.
You will miss out on all of these things if you decided to leave after hearing
the announcement regarding the cancelation.
Getting angry at any representative
Whether it’s the
airline representative or someone from the airport coming over to announce
important information, you
need to stay calm. Yes, you’re already angry and you couldn’t
control it since your plans were already destroyed. Regardless of how you feel,
you need to stay calm. You can’t be angry at the person who came over because
that person is probably only sending the information from the airline. There’s
no point in getting outraged since the representative couldn’t do anything to
change the flights.
Looking for a
flight from another airline
decide to arrange
a flight from a different airline, you need to ensure that you
already fixed everything with the previous airline. Yes, you’re already
desperate to leave, but you don’t want to end up spending money again without
recovering the one you missed from the previous flight. Check if you booked
insurance so that you can collect the refund later.
the cause of the cancelation
If the primary
reason for the canceled flight is the safety of the airline, you can’t do
anything about it. You can start looking for a different airline that will fly
you soon. However, you also need to check if the next flight is sooner than the
replacement flight of your current airline. If the reason for the cancelation
is the weather, there’s nothing you can do about it. All other airlines might
have also canceled the flight. You also couldn’t ask for an answer from anyone
since you will receive the same response. No one can control the weather, and
airlines couldn’t clear any flight unless they are confident that the plane
will land safely.
when you have to change your plans because of a canceled flight. There’s
nothing you can do about it. You have to accept your fate and look for the next
best option. You will eventually get to your destination. Just stay calm and
can’t stress out on this flight especially if you have a lot of
other things to do once you land. Take this as an opportunity to rest.
