Youve heard of the Twilight Zone, even probably seen some episodes... but when it comes to actually being caught in it- its worse than you could imagine. I think we were half asleep the entire 24 hours that we were stuck in Stansted airport- London. We missed our flight to Berlin- on account of Air India. And the Germans had absolutley no sympathy- we lost the tickets. Period.
Long Long story short, we had to pay 800 extra bucks to buy new tickets to Berlin, send our luggage separately and after many many complaints, much angst and sadness, finally arrived in Berlin- 1 day later than expected. And after all the hell that we went though, London seemed much less attractive (as did we after the 40 hours of traveling).
