A friend of mine arrived in Europe with EK this week. Yesterday he took the train from Stuttgart to Lugano and told me of his experience during his 3 hour stopover. He remarked it was his worse experience ever with people taking two or three chairs for themselves to create a makeshift bed, with bags all over the place.
He was waiting by the appointed gate when after 40 minutes they announced a gate change, so of course being near the front, he was suddenly at the back as the whole swarm turned and headed to the new gate.
I’ve the feeling if you have to fly the ME carriers you should only fly in Buisness, otherwise go KLM, BA etc. What’s the expression, “Pound wise, penny foolish”!
