IELTS Letter - Missing a Flight
You missed an international flight due to a problem at the airport.
Write a letter to the airline. In your letter:
- Describe what happened that caused you to miss your flight
- Explain how missing your flight impacted you
- Clearly state what you would like the airline to do
Dear Sir or Madam,
I am writing this to let you know that I missed my international flight yesterday due to the reasons pertaining to the security checks at your airport.
Let me explain you the entire situation. While I was at the security check, the security personnel at one of the check gates received an anonymous warning phone call claiming that one of the passengers on my lane was carrying a Gun. Because of the severity of the risk associated, the security on my lane was made very strict, where they checked each and every luggage thoroughly. This in turn took a lot of time for me to complete the security check and thus I could not catch up my flight on time.
I intended to reach to a very important seminar via this flight and because I missed my flight, I could not make up in time. Subsequently, I encountered loss of my ticket money too. I Would request you to kindly grant me a full refund for my ticket as it was the security checks that lead me to miss the flight. I do understand, airlines have to undergo such unseen situations and act accordingly for the safety of passengers.
Hope you would consider my situation and help me out of it. Thank you.
