BA: "I ain't letting you change your flights on the plane, fool!"
Aug 22, 2008
|Ok, so we decided against the agro of a 12 hour train journey down to Goa as, although it looks beautiful and totally chilled out down there, it is also Monsoon season!
We checked out a few reports and pictures and stuff and it just didn't seem worth making the trip down there.
Hopefully we should get a bit of surf and relaxation time when we travel through Asia/Indonesia so no worries there.
So my job for today was to try and call BA to change the date of our flight (Mumbai to Hong Kong then a connecting flight from Hong Kong to Vietnam (Ho Chi Minh City)).
No dice I'm afaid!
The BA website was of no help.
I called Trailfinders (who organised our tickets) back in the UK and was given some numbers to try.
They didn't work.
Then I called Trailfinders back.
They E-mailed me some more numbers for the Delhi office.
Again no joy.
I called my dad back in the uk to see if he could get through to any of the UK numbers.
He could. So there must have been a problem phoning from India to the UK then. Hmmm
I eventually got the girl at the reception of the hotel we were staying in to ask the Indian directory enquiries for any other Indian numbers to try.
I got a couple of numbers and tried them but as it was now 6pm (about 8 hours after I started this game!) the office was closed....
Grrrrrrr no worries, I'll have to try them again tomorrow.
Another night in India then.....
Oh we did manage to get a Macdonalds during the day though.
No beef in India (as cows are sacred!) so Em had a McChicken sandwich and I had a, wait for it, McChicken Maharajah Mac!!!
Don't moan mum, it's our first Macdonalds in India!
