If you have been following my travels, you will know I was supposed to be in Hong Kong this weekend. I traveled from Paris to Heathrow to catch my flight to Hong Kong on Thursday to have it canceled due to maintenance issues. The plane was struck by lightening the previous day and they couldn’t fix everything in time to get our flight out the following day. They were literally missing one small part. It is better to be safe and I couldn’t be upset but after a long day of traveling and not much sleep, I wanted to just start crying. I decided on Plan C (yes there was an A and a B) and took an early flight home to Chicago. I am writing this from my couch fighting a jet lag migraine but all is good. It just wasn’t meant to be. There is a great article on How to Deal with Flight delays that is very relevant. Since my flight was delayed for more than 3 hours, I am entitled to money from British Airways under an EU law. More on that later as I file my claim. Fingers crossed it gets me back to Paris early 2020.
