    Will do Charlie!

    Well this ain't gonna be a boring trip.... there was a medical emergency on plane and we had to turn around. Guy walked off but sure didn't look comfortable... prayers for him and his wife. It does look like we are going to turn it around and get back in air.

    Fingers crossed! Who needs to sleep anyway???? :A Rock:

    Oh man, sorry to hear your trip is getting off to a bumpy start. But it will be totally worth it. I just hope Bossie can keep the critters on the bait for another night. Safe travels once you are back in the air!

    Don't know yet. Line hasn't moved. I have an ugly feeling this may take a couple of days. Called @Travel Express and she's trying to help of course. Will get there just a matter of when!

    As of right now it looks like I won't get out until tomorrow night. So a two day delay. Will keep checking today and see if anything opens for tonight's flight, but I'm not hopeful. Perhaps @Travel Express can pull one out of the hat.

    Luckily both Bossie and @Tootabi Valley Safaris are flexible so perhaps I can get stay extended. Will know more in a bit here I guess.

    TID (this is delta....)

    No. Delta at least put me in hotel. So will hang out here and then go home if I can't get booked for today.

    Good news for @buddy48 though. He did get booked for today through Dulles. So he will only be one day late. It is his first trip and he has his 12 year old son, so I'd much rather that he got the flight if it could only be one of us!

    That doesn't make sense! Delta has to have that plane in Joberg to bring people back to the states! How far out time wise did you guys get when they turned around?
