Rain Again

Wx- Rain whole day. Seas calm.

First off, NO hammerheads today but dolphins. As for the rest of the others, they are there.

Well, we almost had another group of Japanese that could not their connecting flight in KK to go home. The aircraft touched down on the island and immediately it started to pour 3 months worth of rainfall. Everyone ran for cover including the pilots.

After the rain slowed down at about 2 pm, it's boarding time and the pilots discovered a flat tyre. Now we have to locate the pilots of the spare plane in KK and fly over the spare tyre. Lucky for us/them the weather held up until they arrived at about 3.30 pm. Was it mentioned, this delayed flight is the 2nd flight, supposed to have taken off at 11 am? Getting worried about your connecting flight home if you ever come here, eh? You should be, if you have a connecting flight too close to our estimated arrival time in KK. This is the second time in a row this year that we had to delay or cancel a flight due to weather. It doesn't happen often but then........ Happy holidays.

Ps. We do not get involve or reimburse for an act of god (meaning, you pay for your missed connecting flight/s and all other expenses incurred).
