Have you ever watched the "Mean Tweets" from Jimmy Kimmel's late-night talk show? Basically, celebrities read mean tweets about themselves in front of the camera.
Twitter is indeed a perfect place for people to express their thoughts - particularly for passengers who need to unleash their wrath against the airlines!
I mean, what is more annoying than a canceled or delayed flight when you are at the airport, all packed and ready to leave? We’ve gathered a few of these, you know … for inspiration regarding what we do at ClaimCompass. Enjoy!
Obviously, some passengers are slightly angry
And yet, some others really make you feel for them…
@Lufthansa_DE you stole my money, you cancelled all my reservations, you don't want to give me my miles, U made me lose 2 jobs. WHY? thieves— anais de melo (@anaisdemelo) May 2, 2016
.@virginatlantic - 24 hour delay. Making people sleep on a floor at the airport with pathetic blankets and pillows. Should be ashamed— Paul Blair (@HotWaterPaul) March 23, 2016
@British_Airways thx for ruining my birthday! You cancelled my flight from Florence and none of your staff there to advise on next flight 😬😬— Emily (@emilytbernstein) February 29, 2016
Especially when delayed flights are getting in the way of love. This is just wrong.
@lufthansa Thanks for spoiling my valentine trip— Ashish Shukla (@ashishshukla_05) February 19, 2016

@airfrance dissapointed to find we are now going to miss most of the wedding we are attending due to cancelled flights we knew nothing about— Tony Doyle (@Tonyd1966) February 19, 2016
And apparently, sometimes, airlines are in a mood for jokes!
By the way, If you want to know the reasons behind the “operational reasons” excuses for delays and cancellations, take a look at our interview with a flight attendant!
One was even in for a nice delay record!
I travel a lot. But no trip has been tougher than Cuba-Portland. I'm at 34 hours and counting, and yet another delay.— Robert Reid (@reidontravel) December 10, 2016
But as long as passengers get a compensation it’s all good, right? No, it’s not.
My flight got delayed for the 227295 time but I got a free meal voucher so it's kinda worth it 😏— bekah ✨ (@bekahcald) May 5, 2015
By the way, you can learn more about your right to care when your flight was canceled right here!
At least this one had ham...
Someone else was pissed about getting only water apparently… #DrownYourSorrow
3.5hr delay on a flight, offered only a £3.50 voucher for NON-ALCOHOLIC drink, and they can't then even serve coffee!?! Sort it out @Ryanair— Phil (@ProperPhilthy) April 28, 2016
Others just made me LMAO
At present I'm not sure what's going to leave first - my flight or the UK from the EU. The obligatory endless delay with @easyJet— Scanner (@robinrimbaud) July 14, 2016
Oh dear @British_Airways - a text asking about my experience whilst I'm in charge of 2 feral kids due to 2h flight delay. Not great timing.— Adam Mack (@Macka7) July 11, 2016
And my personal favorite…
I hope this was fun for you!
