Perilous flight to Madrid

On my way to to Madrid via AMS because our flight from IAH was delayed by an hour causing us to miss our connecting flight. In addition, my brother’s passport was not accepted because it expired in less than 3 months from the travel date, so we had to leave him with family, as we had strong commitments to attend to. The one good thing that came out of this was that we’re taking a 777 instead of a 767 from ATL to AMS. Will make additions for our KLM 737 when we reach AMS!

Have a great Flight! 777 should be a nice plane to fly on!

That sucks that you had a bad experience at IAH, hopefully the rest of your trip is better!

The delay sucks but the passport rule is widely known. I got my passport renewed in October, about 9 months before it was due to expire in May. (traveled to Europe yesterday)

In many cases, even if you travel with a visa and that expires in 3 months, entry won’t be allowed. For example, my daughter, who’s 14, went to Germany for vacation on a Schengen visa. She was denied entry, and the same thing happens throughout the world.

When you go from Atlanta to Amsterdam only to see another Delta aircraft upon arrival. You can’t escape them Delta’s lol.

I have a love-hate relationship with those Delta 777s. On one side, they are huge and majestic, but on the other side, my IFE and charging ports never work!
