I want to express my opinion and forward the claim of the company Aiflay!

I will sue and demand compensation for damage, I want to note that I purchased tickets not from the travel agency and not under the contract, and on your site only air tickets. Nobody told me that the flight could be delayed for so long, and without a refund of monetary compensation. Therefore, all the information at the airport I collected, ticket stubs are, clearance of the day at the hotel is. Prepare for court, careless my carriers! By the way, back 24 July also had to get out of nerves, with it already before the deadline, again the loss of time for rest in the hotel, a few hours earlier for some reason and another company. You really better get out of the air transportation market if you do not know how to work with dignity! I'm waiting for explanations and apologies ...
