We asked for your ‘missed flight’ stories, and you gave them to us

We asked for your ‘missed flight’ stories, and you gave them to us

Missing a flight must be one of the worst feelings going. You’ve forked out the cash, made the plans, boasted on social media, only for a series of events to roll out that ultimately prevent you from the main event: lift-off.

And thanks to the availability of modern transport, the rate at which we’re taking to the sky means that most of us have probably experienced missing a flight at least once over the years. And for those of you who haven’t? Count your blessings, and learn from our combined mistakes.

We put a call-out on Twitter for people to share their flight-missing stories with us, and many, many unfortunate souls opened up about their experiences. While some tales make us wince, and others pull on our heart-strings, we’ll admit that we couldn’t help but stifle a few chuckles over the incredibly unfortunate and tragic nature of some of these scenarios…
