We had a brief wait in London Heathrow airport before boarding our final BA flight to Israel. We looked at each other, shook our heads and said how much simpler everything could have been if we had originally flown El Al from Tel Aviv to Newark with code-share on AA to Chicago and back, rather than using British Airways. At least last night's flight from Newark would have taken us directly home instead of this stopover in London.
Our last flight from London was on time and we made it back home - just two days later and one serious diversion from our original plan. Glad to be back, but at least we finally saw all Don's family even if it took two location stops.
