Shkia I’m Detroit is 9:11

Then I would have done this... no point in driving two hours to land maybe 30 mins earlier...

Didn't have 2 seats when I checked shortly after.

Please lets leave the funny storytelling for after we hear they landed safely in DTW.

Meanwhile we can all pray they make it.

Was a private joke not related to this thread at all. I didn't realize anyone but @Something Fishy read my posts

Incoming flight from DTW-ABE took off on time and is scheduled to land early at 3:55.

Hopefully that bodes well for their 5:00 flight to run on time.

that's why we're driving to Spain.
If you're starting in BOS, what route are you taking?

From Boston, you drive to Nova Scotia, take a ferry to Newfoundland, then another ferry to St. Pierre and Miquelon, which is a French territory. From France, it's a matter of crossing the border into Spain.

I wonder if they would say they're a chosson kallah flying to their major shabbos celebration if AA would work around not to have them bumped. Maybe they did and AA didn't budge.

Good point. Just say on their honeymoon and it's hard to believe they would have bumped them.
Would have been great to get that on video, would certainly have gone viral and probably have earned them systemwide F tickets from AA...

I guess taking that route due to sanctions on Russia, hence the need to avoid the simpler route crossing the Bering Strait.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

They did tell them it was their honeymoon, but when they saw it was to DTW the gate agent figured she was doing the bride a favor....
