Going to New York for 5 days…

or, so i thought, i was… I planned to visit my colleagues in New York City coming Monday and Tuesday.

Due to European Vacation it was hard to get a real short term flight for a reasonable price, so i settled for flying out Friday night and returning Wednesday morning.

But, now there is a strike in London Heathrow, and after spending an hour on the phone with British Airways and other agencies, there is just no way I could get to New York City at all. Not just, it would be really, really hard. No, just not at all. There are so many people leaving for vacations from Europe to the USA, that there are several thousand people in front of me for replacement flights.

Therefore, I will be staying in Germany and reschedule for September. First time this ever happened to me in 20 years of intercontinental travel. At least i checked before i went to the airport…
