For some reason I don't believe that Jaguar. :lol:
I will be honest and let you know that my brother will be with me and I will be the talkative one.

Is everyone still going ahead with their plans for Poland or have there been any cancellations due to the ash clouds?

German and Polish airports were supposed to open today, just wondering if the huge back log of passengers will affect our flights this weekend.

Any thoughts?

My understanding is that, as long as you regular scheduled flight is flying, you will be on it. It's the folks who have been missing flights in the last few days who will have to wait for extra flights and/or bigger planes to complete their trips... but don't be late for your flight! :)

My husband and I were supposed to have flown over yesterday but when that flight was cancelled, we could not find a flight that would get me there for 4/26. Good luck to those of you who will have their flights resume! The doctors have been good enough to fit me in again in May, so we just did a mental reschedule rather than stress it trying to find a flight between now and Sunday. Countdown to freedom! I guess that Paul was able to get over there?! Hooray! Good luck, Ted! :D

I just checked in to hotel at Charles de Gaulle airport after a nightmare flight from Montreal. They booted everyone booked on the two fights leaving Montreal and filled the plane with European nationals, sorted us all by passport! After hours of haggling my wife and I managed to squeeze on to the flight which left 4.5 hours late. It then took the looong way to Paris - way south then up.

Long story short - we arrived at the hotel 24 hours after we left our house.

And it was hard to get to our hotel due to all the people still having cancelled flights and looking for rooms.

So I don't know what will happen when I try to get on my flight out of CDG tomorrow - one thing for sure - it's likely to be an adventure! Katowice here I come, and I didn't have to use the amphicar.

Good job Jaguar's wife. We all need good advocats. I am scheduled to leave on Sunday out of Calgary on a Lufthansia flight to Frankfurt. As long as I make it to Europe I can rent a car if necessary.
