Whoops, they cancelled my return flight while trying to get me a new flight.

And now the second flight.
Only delayed 2.5 hours. So, my 10 AM arrival in Poland will now be a 6:15 PM arrival.
Due to missing my connection. Woooooooooooooo

Now I'm in the plane, but we're sitting here. If they say it's another mechanical failure....

good luck for the second leg
I'm guessing as there has been no more updates you hopefully made it into the air

Argh. Landed 20 minutes after connection.
And someone is blocking our gate. Airlines, you're failing me right now!

Are you still in the US?

No, in Frankfurt at least.
I'm so hungry. I've had three protein bars and the airline meal in the past 24 hours.

On the plus side you are are the right side of the water!
The facilities airside at frankfurt are a bit limited if I remember

Glad I asked about my return flight. First leg was deleted by United and had a new ticket number.

I grew up around the Atlanta airport. So, Frankfurt doesn't seem so bad.
I was hoping to find an atm or something. I don't trust my cards to work the first time. Especially since I just said Poland in my travel list.

First time we went through frankfurt we were 'oh we will get some food and drinks airside' - oh.... appparently we keep all the nice food on the outside....
Chip Senkbeil
@chipsenkbeil
Mar 01 2017 10:59
Yeah. The ATM is outside.

Chip Senkbeil
@chipsenkbeil
Mar 01 2017 11:04
It leaves at 4:45 PM. Going to have to not eat until then, I guess.
Rory Graves

Isn't there one cafe there that takes cards?

My bank blocked me. And calling to resolve costs $0.20 a minute.

Ha ha ha
I just wasn't expecting to have not eaten or be stuck in Frankfurt for so long.

I recommend going to a restaurant, eating your food, and then finding out
they can't ask for the food back
they may give you access to their phone to resolve the problem
Rory Graves
@rorygraves
Mar 01 2017 11:24
Haha you have clearly never been to airside of Frankfurt airport, last time I was there it was more of 'one coffee place'.
Ghost
@ghost~540393fe163965c9bc2018ce
Mar 01 2017 11:30
that's pretty ridiculous given how many flights are there

Card got declined trying to get water. Ugh

at least you have time to finish your talk
I just finished mine
by throwing a bunch of hand wavey bits on the last few slides
Chip Senkbeil
@chipsenkbeil
Mar 01 2017 11:54
Ha
I just spent too much money on hold with my bank to get my credit card approved for Germany so I can eat a hotdog.

FYI, I'll probably be sleeping today as soon as I get to the hotel.
Maybe practice again to check timing after rearranging a lot of slides.

the cheapness of Poland will make up for the hotdog
especially with your fancy $$$
Chip Senkbeil

Mar 01 2017 12:08
Ha ha. A friend of mine in Chicago was telling me that.
At least everyone here has been friendly.

Is it better to get Euros or the Polish currency here? Just need some backup cash.
Rory Graves
@rorygraves
Mar 01 2017 17:47
I would go for Polish
Chip Senkbeil
