Day 1: BARCELONA - LIMA
As soon as you enter the airport and see the check-in counters of KLM we begin to intuit that the check in will have to be taken with ease.
The line is huge and when I ask the person who gives way, he tells me that we have to get the boarding passes at the machines, before going to counters.
I show him the ones I have printed at home and on my mobile and he keeps telling me that I have to do the paperwork on the machines. So, without wanting to argue, that we haven't slept today, I'm going straight to take out the cards again. With these I already carry 3 different types of boarding passes. Not bad for a flight from Barcelona to Lima.
With them already in hand, we go to the counter, they ask us for several information, they bill us a backpack for each one, when they usually put both of them to the same name and kindly ask us if we speak English.
Upon hearing an affirmative answer, they tell us that they are looking for people who spoke English to change them to the emergency ranks of the first Barcelona-Amsterdam flight, so without eating or drinking it, they change the seats we had assigned when we checked in online.
And we ask ourselves: if you pay the 40 euros that this seat costs, do you need to speak English? There we left it 😉
Meanwhile, in the billing queue we see a couple of families crying disconsolately because they are not allowed to climb the dogs they bring.
One of them does not stop saying that he has paid 1000 euros between consulate, transport ... so that he cannot take them now. Another woman is not allowed for not carrying the dog chip ...
After this morning "entertainment" we go straight to the boarding gate of our first flight from Barcelona to Lima, where we spent the last half-sleepy minutes before 5.40 in the morning, time to embark.
While we wait we read that there has been an earthquake with a tsunami warning in Chile and Peru and after finishing informing us about the issue, it seems that it will not happen from the earthquake.
