Who ya gonna blame?

I was bemused by the following Tweet:

30 minutes late into  with . Hope the service is more efficient on the return flight this afternoon 

Epic fail?

It turns out that the Twitterer had been late for a very important meeting.

I wish I could be more sympathetic but an aeroplane flight is a very complex juggling act: 

  • weather
  • airport traffic
  • mechanics of the plane
  • crew 
Any of those things can go wrong. I leave a minimum margin of four hours. For example, I do everything I can not to fly into a city for a morning meeting but fly in the day before.
