What do you think when you receive an email from a travel agent that says, “Thank you for booking with us. Your flight is fully booked?”
I think it’s reasonable to go to the airport expecting to get on a flight. That wasn’t exactly the case when we arrived at the airport on Friday afternoon.
Arriving at the airport we found out that the flight didn’t exist. After waiting two hours for the travel agent to return from lunch, she said, “Your flight was already full so I couldn’t book your tickets. Didn’t you get my email?”
Instead, I had a long conversation that led to tickets being purchased for the next flight to Danang. My bag contained a couple pair of surf shorts and some t-shirts for a short flight south to the beach. Danang is North to the cold rain.
Thankfully the nearby town of Hoi An is famous for its tailors that can turn out clothes for tourists overnight. I had two cheap long sleeve shirts ready for me at 8:00 a.m. Saturday so I could explore the city somewhat insulated.
