KLM, lovely sense of humour

After 4 weeks and several emails and phone calls to KLM they have decided I am entitled to a refund as I was stranded in Atlanta for a week as my flight was cancelled due to the Volcano situation. Here's their email (needless to say I have asked how they calculated this figure) -

:thinking: Something went wrong on their calculations!

BTW, how did you get home in the end?

non-refundable ticket, it probably sent auto as you didn't check in on your flight

(plus they obviously hate you and wanted to remind you you're not getting a refund)

Spend 3 hours on the phone getting transferred from dept to dept before someone could help. The earliest date they could offer was 7 days later. We could have flown to Amsterdam on day 4 but would have been stuck there.

We actually went to the airport on the day we were meant to fly as we had to return a hire car. The staff (Delta) were clueless, the queues were huge and there was a distinct shortage of staff. From memory there was approx 20 counters and only 4 were manned. There was a lot of tutting going on from disgruntled travellers.
