Booking was great! But my daughter was asked to change flights when she got in the airport for 7am flight. The British airline told her she did not have a ticket from Glasgow to London , they did not let her board at all. She is still in Glasgow even she had packed everything and returned her apartment keys. At this time, she was told she can leave on May 27th. How does she know the same thing would not happen again on May 27th? She had bad experience with this trip. Would you be able to help her to make sure she can board on 5/27? I am her Mother, I booked the round trip flights. She did not have any troubles from Nashville to Glasgow. But she is past due to come back. Please help her to get back ASAP. Thank you so much!
