Some say I have a knack for finding a story, but sometimes the story finds me. Last Thursday, I flew to the UK to do my radio show in North Wales...and about 10 minutes after I arrived, air travel came to a screeching halt.
As a result, aircraft were out of sequence, how many flight crews are out of schedule synch, and it will take days before they can resume to a barely normal schedule. Meanwhile, there are thousands of passengers stranded in airports and hotels, unable to get to their destination.
Me? I'm tentatively scheduled to get out of London on Tuesday morning, but we'll see.
Have you ever been stranded? How did you get home? Did you have travel insurance and did it come in handy? I want to hear all about it.
Here's the latest update: When the going gets tough, the tough TAKE THE BUS!
That's right, tomorrow morning, i am joining 40 other Americans and driving 19 hours from London to Madrid. I managed to get the last seat out on a flight from Madrid to Miami and then to New York. if all goes well (and why should it?) I'll be in New York Thursday night.
The good news? On that 19-hour bus ride, I'll be doing a special video piece on this wild ride for CBS News. Stay tuned!
