    Good news for Dutch children’s charity KIKA

    On 20 September 2012 I experienced myself how frustrating it is as a passenger to be stranded on an airport. My flight with Air Berlin (AB 6470) was cancelled without providing the passengers with a reason for the cancellation. It was very odd that the replacement flight a day later was also cancelled. We can only speculate about the reason of the cancellations, because of the non-existent information at the airport.

    Just like Surinam Airways, Transavia also believes that passengers should stop complaining when faced with a delay. Previously, we posted an article about Surinam Airways who believe delays are inevitable, because they own only one airplane. To our astonishment Transavia has the same perspective.
