I have spent the last few days with a phone glued to my ear.
You see, even though Frankfurt airport is "kind of" open, as in German carriers have clearance to fly...
Delta's flights have been canceled.
Hmmm. So I call and although most folks I've spoken to these last few days have been kind, patient, understanding and sympathetic...
I was lucky enough to connect with a real... witch.
When I mentioned that I was nervous because I had to take a 5 hour train ride to Frankfurt and that it would be awful to find out that even though Frankfurt airport was open, that Delta flights might not be flying.
I asked her if by Friday...IF FRANKFURT WAS OPENED...WOULD DELTA BE FLYING!!!!!!?????
Is that a bad question? She said," M'am I don't have a crystal ball, Delta is all about safety and just because the other carriers are flying doesn't mean that I can guarentee we will."
OK, that's great except... aren't you partners with KLM?
"Yes," she said.
WELL, THEY ARE FLYING!!!!!!
Without making this story longer, cuz it could be, we are now flying from Bremen thru Amsterdam, onto Boston, into JFK- on KLM, on SUNDAY!!!!!
Ok, the Delta lady may have been cranky cuz I hear they have been working 12 to 14 hour days.
I don't think I will mention to her that I can't seem to get in touch with Air France (another partner of Delta),
You see Air France's customer service is only open 10 to 4pm. They canceled my flight back to Paris and I haven't heard anything from them since AND I can't get thru.
Did I mention that my iphone battery refuses to charge and needs to be sent back to Apple?
Went to the Apple store in Germany and they couldn't fix it, said it needs to be sent to Apple and offered to do it. probaby send it on a Luftansa flight and it would most likely get home before I do.
