Crisis Averted

I decided to check my itinerary today as I am scheduled to fly out tomorrow night back to Dubai. I am really happy I checked because there was something very wrong with my flight. Rather than book me on the non-stop flight back to Dubai, our travel guy booked me on a flight that stops off in Sri Lanka.

Seriously, who books anyone on a flight that stops in Sri Lanka right now?

Let me just book you on this great flight that stops in an active war zone where you will have to disembark the plane for 2 hours and sit in an airport in a mostly unstable country. I think that would be the best way to go.

So now I am on a flight that gets in 6 hours later than the original flight, but at least it doesn't stop in an unstable country.
