So far our flight is still scheduled however all flights before it have been cancelled. We fly through Frankfurt and then to Kiev so we need two different airports to be open in order for us to make it. We've tried looking at alternative routes but so far it's either crazy expensive or just not possible because so many flights to Europe go through major hubs and all those major hubs are closed.
We're hoping that today the ash in the airspace has dispersed and that all flights can resume safely by later this evening and early morning tomorrow.
We move forward as if we are leaving tomorrow. Bags are packed. Schedules are written. Plans are in place. Lots of work...we hope it's not all in vain. But, we know ultimately this is in God's hands and we must be at peace with that. However hard that might be. We know there are so many travelers stranded right now so we have it good in that we are still in the comfort of our own home. So we pray that this air traffic mess is cleared up soon for everyone that is affected by it and hoping to move forward in their lives.
