Auf Wiedersehen, Bonn

So here I am in Cologne-Bonn Airport waiting for my flight back to London Heathrow. The meeting carries on today with a ‘Garage Day’ but I’m skipping that because I don’t have a car.

Inevitably with Eurowings, my plane is delayed by over an hour, which means I’ll be very late back to Cardiff as I’ll miss the bus I had planned to get.

Update: The plane is now delayed by 2 hours and 10 minutes (and counting..)

The Rolling Stones are on in Cardiff tonight and the flight delay probably means I’ll be arriving exactly at the wrong time, when most of the city centre will be sealed off.

I’ve definitely learnt my lesson with Eurowings on this trip and will not be travelling with them again.

Anyway, the delay gives me an opportunity to thank all the organisers of the 2018 Euclid Consortium meeting, which was very well run indeed!

  1. Not to be pendantic, but did you mean Auf Wiedersehen? Tsk, tsk

    I am reading “delay” and “Euclid” in the same sentence, thinking yep that sounds right.

    I seem to have had better luck with Eurowings than you. Small delay on way out, fine on way back.

    Just for the record, Eurowings have at last paid the full compensation owed for outbound and return flights, i.e. 500 euro. That means my entire trip there and back was effectively free.

    Thank you, EU!
