We made it to Houston, finally. We have boarding passes through to Munich. Even that took two tries, though, since on the first try we got boarding passes for the flight we’d already missed. Way to go, Air France.
Our adventure has started rather eventfully. We took off from Phoenix this morning right on schedule, and now we’re safely back on the ground … in Phoenix. The aircraft had a mechanical problem shortly after takeoff, and we had to return to land, but only after circling for almost an hour to burn fuel. We’re not sure what happens next.
