Air France/KLM deserve to go out of business. I am still arguing with their so called ‘customer service’ for a refund of taxes on an unused ticket. Their ‘customer service’ staff clearly have no interest in trying to resolve matters, and seem intent on just annoying even more passengers. I am not surprised that Air France/KLM group is making big cutbacks. At one time, KLM used to be a good airline (probably Air France too), but not anymore. Far too few staff working in their check-ins/ground staff, and also old, tired aircraft and crews that also seem to have lost interest. Even if their fares may appear cheaper, life is too short to have unpleasant flights, unpleasant staff, and a customer service section that appears to be ANTI customers. Had Air France/KLM processed (or even agreed to the refund) in a reasonable time, then possibly more bookings would have been made with them. But their ‘customer service’ has just been so bad over the last flights that they are now no longer an option. The good thing is that some of the Eastern/Middle Eastern Airlines (for example, Qatar Airways) are FAR superior to Air France/KLM. The unhelpful replies from their ‘customer service’ have done it now. No more flights with Air France/KLM. Not just one flight that has led to this decision, but a series of poor flights and poor experiences with them. I could write a long story about some of the incidents, over many flights. Life is too short to endure the poor treatment by Air France/KLM. I hope that they are soon bankrupt. They deserve to be.
And for the photo today…..some hats on a market stall. But can you guess from which country?

Did you know that the world’s largest shopping centre (based on total area) is in Dubai (not surprisingly called ‘The Dubai Mall) with 1200 shops. In 2011 it had over 54 million visitors. (As a comparison, Niagrara Falls receives an estimated 22.5 million visitors a year.) It includes a 250 room luxury hotel, 22 cinema screens and also parking for 14 000 cars. It also contains the world’s largest sweet shop (Candylicious).
A winter’s day in Stockholm, Sweden for the photo today with ice forming on the Baltic Sea. From here, boats ferry passengers to the islands outside of Stockholm, although things are very quiet at this time of year., Temperatures in Sweden at this time can fall to below -30, although Stockholm was around -5 degrees when the photo was taken.
