Air France sucks! They managed to find no less than six ways to
delay my arrival in Amsterdam:
1. flight to Paris arrived 20 minutes late
2. ground crew was on strike (of course)
3. shuttle bus was borken
(1, 2, and 3 caused me to miss my connecting flight)
4. replacement flight boarded an hour later than scheduled
5. replacement flight was delayed due to spurious luggage needing
to be hunted down and removed before takeoff
6. takeoff was delayed due to needing to wait for a runway position
And once I finally arrived in Amsterdam, they had misplaced my
pack and I had to wait for it to be delivered to my hotel, four
These guys really went out of their way to suck! I'm impressed.

Welcome to France! Since I arrived in Paris a few days ago, the guys
carrying money to the cash dispensers are on strike (so you can't have
cash), the students in medicine are on strike, and I just heard of
another one on the radio....

They had lost my bag too. But it only took half an hour to get it back.
Food was good on the plane though, and that's the first time that I saw
ear plugs provided on a plane.
