There was a big situation today. We just found out that we missed our flight by mistake. Our flight was 2am on the 23rd and we kept thinking it was on the 23rd night. I can't believe we have done this soooooo many times yet made such a careless and fatal mistake. (Missing a flight to Japan at THIS season?!) Midnight flights are very confusing! So I had a huge panic because we MUST reach Tokyo tomorrow for meetings. I was praying so hard that we can get on tonight's flight (24th morning. See? Confusing lol). And this is when I am really, REALLY glad that we fly with Japan Airlines. We called up and apparently there were last 3 seats left for tonight's flight. That's perfect (Sakura doesn't count since she is an infant)!!! The problem is, the 3 seats left were Business Class, as economy is full. We didn't mind to pay extra for the new flight, but there's no way we could afford business class.
The JAL staff said they'd call back, and it took foreverrrr. I panicked more and asked if the danna gave the wrong phone number to call lol. Eventually they did, and found us 3 economy class, at no additional charge. HUH? It was our own fault leh why they are so nice to us? Not only that, they also arranged the bassinet seat for me and Sakura. I almost cried ok. Why these people are so kind 😭😭😭. It seemed like they made a lot of arrangements to help us that's why it took them so long to call back.
The only thing I could think of is they probably upgraded 3 passengers so we could have the seats. You are welcome, 3 lucky business passengers. But thank you, JAL. Thank you so much. 你没有辜负我对你的爱。✈️🇯🇵 Moral of the story is, get your flight time right. And fly JAL. 😌
