We have just returned from a very busy weekend in USA where we went to see some puppies
and a bitch that I shall be shortly importing.
The journey was horrendous, landing in CDG, Paris ok then to board the 747 of which
we sat on for almost two hours before the plane was grounded by inspectors. There
were two of these planes grounded together so you can imagine 500 passengers queuing
at the Air France desk trying to get another flight. David and I changed airline
to Continental and flew the following morning having had to stay in Paris overnight.
After arriving at CDG airport for the Continental flight, we were told it was overbooked
and we could not go. After a few polite words and stamping of feet, we did board
the plane but this time to Newark where we had to change again for our final destination.
During all this, our luggage was lost in the system so we arrived in USA with no
clothing. Due to it being only a two day stay over, all our luggage was in one case.
We had just enough time to shop in the only store open to get a few essentials. We
did manage to achieve our goal in the end and with super company. The American's
we met were so friendly and we all dined out together at some of the best restaurants.
Then the flights home, yet another problem. CDG, Paris again!!! the flight in was
late and arrived as the flight to BHX was taking off. They landed our plane in the
wrong terminal so we had to wait 4 further hours for the next flight home. I will
be returning to see the puppies again but certainly not through CDG airport.
