We had no room during high season in Ilulissat, the airport is far from town and we had been the only flight. Air Greenland refused quite rude, to support us regarding accomodation. It does not matter that Air Greenland could not fly us out in time, it is our problem. Very poor problem handling, very poor service, especially as I called Air Greenland this morning and told them about our room problem. They promised that the ground staff could help and I know that they Air Greenland has an affiliated hotel in town.
Anyway, we had been the only souls in the airport. I called the hotel I booked the rooms where we could not show up (I always informed all hotels about our situation) and by mere luck they had one room left, a very small room, but a room!
All was good. We found a place to eat and went back to the hotel. Next morning the next flights, weather permitting.
Weather did not permit in the morning! Kangerlussuaq was closed due to havy rain! Our flight to Aasiat and further to Kangerlussuaq was shown as cancelled on the display. We looked not very happy when another pax sitting next to me explained what the lady told everybody in danish and greenlandic but not in english. The flight to Aasiat was cancelled, but they try to fly directly to Kangerlussuaq a bit later with the same plane. Hope again.
We could fly and we could land. It was heavy rain in Kangerlussuaq, which just eased a bit. Nearly all flights have been canceled so far, the airport was crowded. But the intercontinental flight was in time and we finally flew from Greenland to Europe.
It was a little expedition til the end!
