TJ is just the most gorgeous Greyhound who is off to live with his owners in North Cyprus. Animalcouriers collected him very early this morning for his flight to Larnaca, where he would be met by colleagues for the onward journey to North Cyprus.
However, when courier R reached the handlers at the airport, he was told that TJ could not be checked in, which was quite a surprise. Courier R returned to our Surrey location with TJ and we got on the phone to find out what had gone wrong.
Before any flight we always check with the handlers to ensure that our passengers are expected and to clarify what time they need to arrive. It turned out that we had been given an incorrect arrival time, which meant that TJ was just too late to be checked in.
So he has been rebooked to travel early tomorrow morning — we have treble checked all the timings. Courier R and TJ will be on the road at 3.00am!
We have to consider the timed and dated paperwork on a journey like this, so it was important to get TJ onto another flight as quickly as possible — and of course to make sure his family aren’t waiting too much longer to be reunited with him in Kyrenia.
And how has TJ taken it all? Well, he seems very unconcerned, happily accepted breakfast and a drink, looked around and promptly went to sleep. If only he knew how many people are making phone calls, writing emails and worrying about him!
