My Hongkong -Taiwan flight cancelled at the last minute. Qantas didn’t do anything. You have two options.
1. Arriving in Hongkong, fight at the Qantas counter. Saying it’s not my fault you should do something and arrange our accomdation. So many of my friends will choose this way I know. Just by listening to how they get angry for me on Facebook I know they will get so cranky and fight till the end.
This reaction only has one outcome . You get all exhausted and work up and at the end you might still need to find a hotel yourself anyway.
2. Just find a hotel yourself . If the travel insurance can claim you can always claim it. If not, it’s a mini stop over holiday for one night that you will normally pay anyway.
Yes it costs $300 to find a decent last minute hotel that is still available when you search online at 10 pm at the airport . However what’s the price of being calm , happy and relax at the start of your holiday?
I believe a lot of things in life you cannot choose the cause but you can certainly choose your reaction to it. The reaction to these circumstance will determine the experience and the quality of your life.
PS: although I don’t mind to have more than 5 hours sleep in this hotel ...my Hongkong stopover only consists of Airport-Luxe Manor hotel (6 hours)-back to airport . I didn’t even step on the ground of Hongkong soil...
