Barely Coping-Hagen

| Working | March 28, 2017

(I’m Malaysian and as such do not need a visa to visit the UK for up to three-months. I’m checking in for my flight from Copenhagen to London, just to transit through, and the lady behind the desk is very insistent that I need a visa.)

Me: “I’m Malaysian, and we do not need a visa to visit the UK for not longer than three months.”

Agent: “Hold on; I’m checking.” *speaks angrily and rapidly in Danish to a fellow agent*

Me: “Excuse me, but a quick check online will show that I don’t need a visa.”

Agent: “Shut up.” *waves finger in my face* “Don’t you tell me what to do. Don’t YOU f****** tell ME what to do.”

(Not being able to afford to run the risk of missing this flight I kept quiet but inside I was absolutely furious. I filed a complaint with the airline but never heard anything back. I was eventually allowed to board my flight but I am certainly avoiding this carrier from now onwards.)
