Passing Through Paris – Delayed Edition

I shouldn’t be able to write this post right now, but my flight to Bangalore is now approaching a two-hour delay, so why not update the blog? 🙂 On the positive side, the flight to Paris was just fine, though I didn’t really sleep much. I was laying down for a good 3-4 hours, but sleep just didn’t come. So now I’m tired and annoyed at a delayed flight, even more so because there doesn’t seem to be a reason for it. They first delayed us a half-hour and then an hour and the gate crew didn’t seem to have clue as to what caused the delay. Then we got to board, only to discover we had to take a shuttle for several minutes to reach the plane. And once on the plane, we were told to expect another half-hour delay because two important crew members haven’t arrived yet. The fun never ends! At least sitting in business class is more comfortable than hanging around the gate!

So, cross your fingers for me! I really hope we get to take off soon, but there haven’t been any additional announcements since they told us about the missing crew. The trials and tribulations of travel, eh? 🙂
