So I’m writing this from Amsterdam.
It seems that a carrier based in Rome went on strike and all the passengers were diverted to the plane that our crew was supposed to fly (on standby) to Rome on.
There was 1 empty seat and because of the strike, there was little possibility of getting a flight back from Rome. But the Amsterdam flight was an hour later and there were plenty of open seats in business class. Hurray. Greg got first class and Sabre, Mark and I were put in business class. Yay.
It’s cold here — winter time temps but I have my coat, scarves and gloves so I should be fine.
I will add photos to this blog later tonight when I’m good and sauced.
