Today, I was flying home to Milwaukee after a weekend in South Carolina. When I got to the airport, my reservation didn't match up with any flights. Turns out Expedia booked me on a flight that doen't exist. I spent ten hours waiting in the airport for a two hour flight. FML

Liking the comment for the friends reference!

Ow, that really sucks. You should get your money back!

^^^ nice profile pic^^^

That sucks. Though not like females.

It took you ten hours to work that out?!

Yep, automatic YDI.

Yeah, even if he was too stupid to do the common sense thing and double check his flight, he deserved it for hanging out in the airport lobby for 10 hours without trying to check in to get on his plane

No, it sounds like they didn't have a flight to her destination for another ten hours.

I think when he/she tried to check in, when they were looking for that flight they had none.

Why would he deserve it?? It's not his fault the airline was stupid enough to book him on a flight that doesn't exist..

The FML is that he spent 10 hours. How could you wait around for 10 hours without doing anything to figure out what happened. The first thing you have to do at the airport is check in. If the flight didn't exist, he couldn't check in for it. So what was he doing?

looks like someone's been heartbroken... :) or just hasn't ever been laid

she was probably waiting for the next flight. I've had to do this because of "technical difficulties" with the plane, except i had to wait longer.

Maybe he meant waiting ten hours in the airport for the new flight. You know, the one that actually existed.

He was waiting for the next flight to Milwaukee.

They don't let you through the gates 10 hours before your flight is scheduled to take off, so if he meant he waited around the airport for 10 hours to get the next flight, it still begs the question, What was he doing it that it took him 10 hours in the airport? Even busy airports don't let you through the gates more than 4 hours in advance.

Yeah they do........ Also, OP could've waited in part of the airport that you don't need to go through security to get to.

You didn't think to check the flight with the airline? Don't you know you should always confirm your flight prior to departure to save yourself these kind of hassles...

They would have told you this when you checked in. You can't even go into the loading area without a valid ticket, and even if you don't check luggage, you have to go to your airline to sign in for the flight before then

Uhhhh... isn't that what happened? Thats how i took it anyways. When he went to check- in there was no flight to check in to.....
