Fucking Iberia – Round 2

It was all going so well, we’d got the house packed up just in time, made it to the hotel and got to the airport for just after 5am and then got upgraded to business for the second leg of the flight from Madrid to Quito.

Then the plane didn’t take off from London…

It was so close! An agonisingly slow exit from the rear of the plane, followed by a slow drive across the airport, meant we got to terminal 4S 16 minutes before take off, only to be met by an Iberia rep saying no.

The only option was to got back to terminal 4 and pick up tickets for the next days flight… Boo!  They bussed us off to an airport hotel were we spent the night taking advantage of the free booze and internet and rearranged our next few days.

Wayne’s joke of the day “we are in pergatory, stuck between planes”.

I must get a picture of some tumbleweed.

    The free booze and internet sounds a good bonus, hope your flight went okay eventually.
    Did you still get your business flight upgrade?

  2. NIce 🙂 Welcome to Iberia Land!! The ride is less thrilling and more stroking…..

    At least it sounds as though Wayne was in good spirits, one for the witty joke (not bad after so many years of trying) and secondly the free booze.
    Hoping you made it eventually…..err you did go didn’t you ?
