I'll be going as well. I already have my trip planned out and I've booked all flights, bus rides and accommodations. The only missing item is the Nigeria vs Argentina ticket.
My trip starts with a flight to Gdansk, Poland and then a bus to Kaliningrad.
Then bus rides and a day or two in each of the following countries: Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia before arriving Saint Petersburg.
I haven't decided whether to return from Moscow or Saint Petersburg.

If you want to transfer the ticket in the bolded, get in touch with me ASAP.

What is the point of wasting value resources in establishing a national carrier in the 21st century if we are just going to sell it off?. Just encourage the massive private sector to establish their own airlines. I said it before the average Nigerian will not enter a plane in his or her life, we need the little money we have to be spent on 24 hours light, not vanity projects that will be misused by the corrupt board of directors appointed that will give themselves and their families free tickets.


Nigerians should not encourage this wasteful venture, which will only benefit the elite.


I am a PROUD NIGERIAN and I believe our NIGERIAN entrepreneurs have a better chance of having the best airlines in the world rather than a useless government airline. (Afterall a few years ago a Nigerian businessman was at the head of a private consortium that bought and ran the second largest airport in the UK, Gatwick Airport - would any Nigerian government allow that in Nigeria?)

I will see it as an investment actually, job creating opportunities, Forex Inflow etc... Most airline now are run as partnership between a big established Airline hence passing on the experience to local management. There are many businesses and policy of government targeted at the elite that has great trickle down potential for everyone, the elites wont man the check-in desk, run the back end of the airline website, or handle luggages..these are all jobs that will be opened to everyone..

Travel / Re: Cost Of Traveling To Australia by Mcslize: 12:06pm On May 25
don4realt18:

You just discouraged op cheesy grin

He just said the truth. To relocate to Australia, hold nothing less than 2million Naira in your account for writing of your English test, processing and accessing of your degree or skill. Then whatever remains will be for your flight. 1million Naira should cover up what I listed above then have the remaining extra 1million Naira handy for accommodation for your first 3 weeks of landing. You must have a degree in certain courses to relocate or a high in demand skill.

Australia and Canada are not countries where one can just jump into plane and go to with N350,000. You must make adequate plan for it and enter legally as you will be glad for taking such a decision for the rest of your life.

Travel / What To Do If You Miss Your Flight by LekkiGists: 12:50am On May 25
From:- LekkiGists



Planning your holiday is incredibly exciting. What’s even more exciting is the day you actually leave! The anticipation builds up as you pack your suitcase, kiss the pets goodbye and make your way to the airport. There are so many things to take into account when you’re flying from one destination to the next and worrying about whether you’ll get to your flight on time is just one extra thing. Travelstart wants you to enjoy stress-free travel, so we’ve come up with a guideline on what to do if you miss your flight!

The reality is that most of us can’t control everything that happens in life, from unforeseen traffic to road accidents, family emergencies that just come out of the blue and a long list of things to factor in before you board. We have come up with tips, advice and some information to alleviate any confusion on what happens when you miss your flight.

Please note that there are no guarantees on how different airlines handle this situation and so it is always a good idea to spend that little bit extra and invest in travel insurance to avoid all stress. Also, make sure you’ve read through and understood the airline’s terms and conditions before you depart.

Before we get into all that, let’s answer the most frequently asked questions regarding missing your flight…

Can you get a refund if you miss your flight?
The short answer to this is, ‘No’. Passengers are not automatically refunded for missing their flight as it is their duty to board on time. In some cases, you may qualify for a discount on the next available flight or even be allowed to board for virtually free of charge, but this is done at the discretion of individual airlines and at unique times.

Is travel insurance a good idea?
Travel insurance is definitely a good idea to cancel out any worry about missing your flight. Consider Travelstart’s comprehensive international travel insurance, which covers everything when abroad, including airline delays, missed flight connections, visa denial, baggage loss, and even damage to your home. Travelstart has a fantastic medical aid protection plan, which insures you the full refund of your flight ticket, should you miss your flight due to unforeseen death, illness or hospitalisation of yourself or family member.

Please note that these travel insurance packages do NOT cover missed flights due to heavy traffic, forgotten documents or anything else that could have been humanly avoided, so always plan ahead and be prepared!

That being said, let’s look at some options to avoid missing your flight.

Tips on how to not miss your flight

1. Check in online – this saves you from spending time in long queues at the airport and gives you peace of mind that you’re checked in. Bear in mind that once you’ve checked in online, the airline considers you to be on the plane and will not account for you if you are running late for your flight. Once your seat is confirmed, and you miss your flight, that is essentially a wasted seat that could have been given to a standby customer. By checking in online before your flight, all you need to do is proceed straight to the boarding gate with your printed out boarding pass. Online check-in is only available to those within the baggage restrictions who can proceed straight to the bag drop counter (bag drop usually closes 40-60 minutes before departure); or if you’re travelling light with only hand luggage, you can head straight to your boarding gate. See our online check-in guide for all major airlines.

2. If you have an unexpected emergency, phone the airline or airport and let them know. Although an airline will not delay a flight for a passenger (unless in case of an extreme emergency), a representative can advise you on any information that could potentially help you. Also, by informing the airline that you may potentially miss your flight, they may be able to give your seat to a standby passenger and hold you in good light for doing so.

3. If you arrive at the airport late, immediately find an airline representative and let them know you are late for your flight. They can direct you to the front of the queues for security checks and passport control so that you can get to the boarding gate as soon as possible.
Pack light to avoid having to check in your baggage – if you’re doing a short trip, pack as light as possible to store all of your belongings as hand luggage that does not need to be checked in. You will immediately save time, which will come in handy if you’re already late.
Plan to get to the airport earlier than need be – this one may seem obvious, but many people enjoy sticking to a strict travel schedule, which may include very precise travel times to and from the airport. By doing this, you may forget to take any roadworks or traffic jams into consideration and arrive at the airport later than expected.

Unfortunately, even with the best of planning, some travellers do miss their flight! What would the next steps be in getting you in the air and off to your desired destination? Well, there are a few options to look at…

Quick tips on what to do if you miss your flight
Find a representative of your booked airline and ask about the airline’s policy on missed flights – some airlines may only charge a rebooking fee while others may ask you to pay in the difference between the new and old flight, which can work out expensive. It is NOT standard practice for an airline to waiver excess charges, so don’t expect a free pass. To avoid the hassle and expense of booking a new flight, make sure you don’t miss your flight!

Check for the next available flight with the same airline and ask to be put on the standby list – often during peak travel season, there are many flights to the same destinations and with your name on the list, it may just be an hour or two before you’re on your way again. If the airline cannot offer you an alternative flight at an equal or cheaper price, do a quick search and compare flights on Travelstart!
We know this situation can be incredibly stressful, but always try to remain calm and communicate politely with airline staff. Clearly explain your situation and they will do their best to assist you.
Stay at the airport – it’s always a good idea to stick around at the airport as you await your next flight. If the waiting time is less than 5 hours, it is recommended to stay in the vicinity to avoid any further delays on your behalf.
Sometimes, one action can lead to the next and that is especially the case in terms of connecting flights! Have a look at these tips on what to do when you miss your initial flight.

Can you miss the first leg of a flight?
When you miss your first flight on a multi-city air ticket, many airlines will automatically cancel your connecting/return flight and have you marked as a ‘No Show’. If you have a long layover and are still able to catch your connecting flight, make sure you immediately let the airline know, so they can put you on their system for that flight. If all flights are with the same airline, or have code-share agreements, you only need to phone the main airline on your ticket. In the case that your flights are with multiple airlines, you will need to inform each affected airline that you will miss the first flight, but will still be on the connecting one. You will need to do this once you have successfully re-booked your missed flight.

What happens to your baggage when you miss your connecting flight?

If you missed your connecting flight and your luggage was on that flight, you would again need to find a representative from the airline that you booked with as soon as possible. The representative would then track your luggage and hold onto it until you get there, instead of leaving it for security to collect at the end of the luggage conveyor belt on the other side! Always be on the safe side and include baggage insurance for lost or delayed baggage, especially for long trips.

What should you do if your flight is delayed?
If and when a flight is delayed, it is the responsibility of the airline to inform passengers about this delay and provide all the information needed, such as how long the wait will be. Most airlines, depending on how long the delay is, will compensate their passengers. If a flight is delayed by more than a certain number of hours (the amount of time is airline and route dependent), you will be compensated with meals and accommodation near the airport if need be. For shorter delays, you might even be given access to the airline’s luxury lounges, keeping you as comfortable as possible! Be aware that some airlines might only give you a percentage of your air ticket back – another reason why travel insurance is a good idea.

What happens if the airline cancels your flight?
There may be an unlikely situation where the airline cancels your flight. This could be due to a number of reasons, and remember that the airline always has your best interests at heart. Luckily, an airline flight cancellation is at no fault of the passenger and so it then becomes the responsibility of the airline to fix the situation and make an alternative plan. In the extreme case that your flight is cancelled, you will be put on the next available flight at no additional cost. Alternatively, you may be fully compensated for your lost flight.

Truly that's another angle that needs to be cross-checked. I'm on my 4th US visa, and not even once have I used my visa on the date I gave for travel, haven't had issues so far except on my first visit, and it was at JFK, but I have enjoyed subsequent use of JFK too, hardly have I entered the US without either entering from there or exiting from there, it's always cheaper and I love seeing Manhattan environment always....

Someone earlier posted doubts on such things happening in Lagos, that only CBP is saddled with such responsibility. Okay oh!

Well, I don't know whom they were exactly, but I know that a couple of years ago myself and other US bound passengers were made to step aside right after the then first immigration boarding gate at MMIA by some white folks with laptops and some other devices, my passport and visa was checked using the instrumentality of the above things, and I was subjected to a brief questioning/interview before being allowed to proceed to board, but one of the guys pulled off the queue and scrutinized was asked to come with them, the end result I don't know till date.

Anytime you booked a plane ticket to U.S every airline is required to obtain crucial information from the passenger (crucial info are Passport data page info, address etc) this information is first run against your visa then run with other relevant institutions to ascertain if the passenger is fit to travel especially passenger who abused the terms of their visa and also assist the Canadian Govt.
It makes more sense to them to cancel the visa before you board in Nigeria so as to assist the airlines.

Travel / Re: Osun N69bn MKO Abiola International Airport: Untold Story Of A Promising Project by namet(m): 9:53pm On May 23
Airports in Nigeria are built for the personal comfort of the governor, not for their economic viability. These governors do not like traveling to nearby states to board flights, they want the plane to sit literally by their door.

This is why they must build airports and the ignorant citizens would always support the initiative eventhough it sucks and wastes their state's lean resources. After building an airport, the next move is to buy a private jet.

Case in point: this is exactly what Governor Akpabio did in Akwa Ibom. Calabar airport is only 30 minutes from Uyo, but because Akpabio hated being driven by road to the airport in Calabar, he built an airport and then his idiotic supporters killed anyone who dared to question the economic viability the project. Today, that Uyo airport attracts very few flights weekly - about 3 or 4 planes fly out of Uyo weekly, even right now.

After building the airport, Akpabio bought a private jet for his personal use. Today, Akwa Ibom has the worst case of abject poverty in Nigeria, while Akpabio and his minions enjoy an empty airport.

Osun people should be thankful that the airport was not built. I say this because the next move would have been the borrowing of billions to buy a private jet by the governor. Osun people should, instead, insists on recoverying monies stolen already for the project.

Scarce resources, but a good idea nonetheless, considering the fact that the concessionaire was paying 100% of the funds, and would recoup their investment within 39 years, then transfer back to the state government permanently. A perfect arrangement with no loss to the Osun State government.

From the op, I understand that this is simply a case of the concessionaire backing out, and I wish there were laws that stopped people from reneging on agreements like this. If they knew it wasn't profitable to them, they should have never signed it in the first place.

The only problem with the whole issue is how Aregbe bragged about it and raised the people's hopes. But then again, who wouldn't, it seemed like a well thought out plan and he didn't expect it to fail.
