Sal to Italy

March 2006 - When my friends went to get the return flight from Sal, there was another problem, due to the missed transfer in Lisbon on the date originally booked, they had difficulties at the Check-In desk at Sal airport. The Check-In staff had automatically taken it that, as my friends hadn't arrived on the date they had booked, that they wouldn't be on the island to get the return flight! There didn't seem to be any cross referencing to check they had actually arrived on the island the following day. I have been told that return flights, especially where there have been some problems, should be checked and confirmed with the airline at least 3 days before leaving Sal.
