Well, we were supposed to fly to Denver, then to Frankfurt on Lufthansa airlines. We were in the Portland airport ready to go and all checked in. Then some of us were getting texts saying our flight from Denver to Frankfurt was cancelled!
Lufthansa Airlines had just gone on strike!!!!
Thanks to a wonderful woman from United Airlines we were rebooked on British Airways but now we were going to London with a 12 hour layover at Heathrow airport in London. Then at 10:30PM we will finally get on a plane for our final flight to Tel Aviv, Israel.
We will be about 8 hours late and will miss a good nights sleep at our first hotel because we will be flying. But we will be there!!
Everyone is in good spirits but waiting in an airport for 12 hours is not fun. We, however, feel fortunate that we were able to get across the pond!
