| I took a DAT flight from Pantelleria, Italy to Palermo. This was the worst experience I have ever had with an airline in my history of flying and it cost me and my friend a lot of money in rescheduling fees and cancelled tickets when we were finally able to reach Palermo. We were scheduled to be on a morning flight in Pantelleria to arrive in Palermo at 10:25 in the morning. I then had a flight scheduled to Milan and from there was taking a train to meet my husband in Portofino. DAT cancelled our flight three times with absolutely no reason and with no updates. We had to get updates from the airport. Eventually, we left in the late afternoon, which meant that I had to buy two different tickets from Alitalia to get to mainland Italy from Palermo. This cost me hundreds of dollars (almost $700 USD) and I lost the entire day traveling, only to arrive in Portofino around 1am. Additionally, the plane was old and not very clean. The entire experience was awful and I will never even consider flying DAT again. My friend, who was traveling with me, felt exactly the same way.
