No, not that they returned the A380, that would be Great news, but Mike was able able to check us in-online this morning .and were grabbed the last pair of of seats. One of us will be in the middle but figure better to sleep beside a loved one rather than with a stranger in between. We picked a row with a blocked aisle seat and will hope that it will remain empty. He also was able to check in for our flight to Bologna and got to grab a pair of exit row seats!
So while it won’t be the trip I have been imaging for the last 11 months, it looks like it is gonna all turn out ok!
