Dear Sir or Madam,
I am Evan Piera, writing to inform you that I could not get into the flight from Dublin to Tokyo on 21st March due to a mismanagement at the airport. I would like you to rectify the issue and arrange my next flight on 24th March.
I booked my flight with your airline two weeks ago and was scheduled to fly to Tokyo from the Dublin airport at 2100 hours on 21st March. I reached the airport at 1900 and checked in my luggage. When I was ready to take my flight, an airport security personnel approached me and asked me to follow him to the security room for an interrogation. I was quite baffled by the sudden inquest and tried to be as helpful as possible. However, the damage has already been made. I missed my flight when I was cleared and due to this, I could not attend an important meeting at our Tokyo office. I notified my employer immediately and they asked me to take the next flight, which was not available until next 24th March.
I would like you to rectify this unexpected investigation within your jurisdiction and book my flight on 24th March.
