Weather might be better next days. Well, I hope so.

But I am so cross now. Please, never ever buy a flight ticket from some agent. My friend re-booked flight like 2 hrs later than me but he is going tomorrow and I am going home on Wednesday! It is because booking agent can find you just the first flight with free tickets but if you buy a ticket from airlines, they can put you on wait list. So he can choose out from 3 flights tomorrow but I have to wait for Wednesday.

Basically, it is any company which offers flight tickets.

Booking agent - that's how BA call it.

Btw, are you going from Paris to Slovenia (or A/HR etc)? Are there any problems with flights in Paris?

No, LHT-Vienna, the main Slovak airport.

Today the airport was closed and there will be still some delays on Monday.

Btw, other Slovak airports are Budapest-Ferihegy, Kraków, Rzeszów and Praha.. and regional airports - Bratislava, Košice.

VIE is about 50 km from Bratislava. For example: London - Luton = 50 km, Gatwick airport = the same, even in Oslo the airport is 70 km from the city..

Poor you. There is just one thing why I am happy - I was not on a way to airport. And actually I have to take a coach to airport at 2:00 AM on Wednesday.

WTF? What time is your flight?

from aeroportsdeparis.fr:

Quote:
Due to heavy snowfall, air traffic is severely disrupted at the Paris airports this morning. At Paris-CDG and Paris-Orly, traffic should resume progressively before noon. Priority will be given to departing flights.
snowfall wasn't heavy at all, and it was expected..

Anyway, I'm not so enthusiastic about flying any more. In Melbourne some dude almost stripped me, cause he thought I had bombs.

Only Bratislava and Košice are in Slovakia. And Oporto used to be a Spanish airport, but with those new Portugese tolls, no longer is.
BTW, Ryanair flies to an airport that they call "Paris-Vitry", which is located 202 km away from Paris. Try to beat that.

Many romanians that live in the western part of the country (myself included) use Budapest or even Vienna airports. From my town there are 270 km to Budapest Ferihegy Airport and I've seen many romanian cars and people there.

Vatry Airport.

When I first drove A26 in 2005, I passed through empty landscapes for quite some time, as this part of France is comparable to the American Midwest. All the sudden you see this huge airport in the middle of nowhere, it was weird.

I just saw on the news a woman on Heathrow Airport that was complaining about the flights beeing delayed/canceled. She was stuck in the airport for 4 (four!) days and she was still with the same clothes on her because she haven't got her check-in luggage back.

How much snow was in the UK during the last days? I know that Bucharest OTP Airport was still open few years ago even it snowed almost half a meter (with some flight delayed for few hours, but still... you got the point).
