flying on a non-existent airline

This morning I stopped by a local travel agency to confirm my flight for tomorrow from Freetown (Sierra Leone) to Banjul (The Gambia) on Slok Air International. 

Travel agent: “That airline isn’t flying.”

Me: “What?”

“They haven’t flown since November.”

“But I just bought this ticket ten days ago.”

Shrug.  “You would have to fly Gambia International Airways on Wednesday.  Can I book you the ticket?”

Lesson: Always confirm your ticket.  In case the airline is still selling tickets but not actually flying anywhere.
