Getting held over during a commercial flight is one of the worst hassles possible while traveling. You’ve paid good money to get where you need to go, and you’re stuck at a hotel – or worse, the airport all night long. No paying customer should have to deal with that.
Commercial airlines are good at making you think you don’t have the right to complain when you’re treated badly. Natural disasters do occur, but there’s no hope of personalized service whatsoever on a commercial flight. Weather or equipment problems may cause delays, but you shouldn’t have to sleep on the floor or in a hard chair all night in a busy airport.
Picking Your Battles
One of the worst aspects of getting held up at an airport is the customer service. In many cases, it seems like the staff is out to get you. You’re not going to get on a flight, and you’re waiting in long lines without the benefit of getting a straight answer. It’s only natural that you would get upset and demand some answers.
Travelers understand that if they try to complain, even the slightest bit of aggression is going to cause some real issues. Travelers find themselves renting cars, taking the train or riding a bus to their destinations after they have problems with airport staff.
In some cases, you may find that your airline won’t comp you for a hotel, even if the flight cancellation or overlays are their fault. This is typically the case when weather is bad. If you end up on the ground even a few hours later than you intended, emotions tend to run high – and with reason! You should get what you’re paying for, and you should be able to enjoy the amenities you’re offered if you’re spending hundreds of dollars out of pocket on a flight.
