Layover in Amsterdam

The group of us that are making our connection in Amsterdam have arrived safely.  Slightly ahead of schedule, even, which doesn't mean a lot when our Detroit flight is still more than three hours away.  The airport is enormous so there are plenty of things to do.

Since some of you might not have seen Mr. McDowell's comment in another post and might be tracking our progress, I'll repost it here:

For those at home who like to track flights online, note that the flight numbers are different than the ones in the Agenda - Flight - Hotel Information document we were given.

The United group will be on UA967 from Rome to Washington DC, not UA 43. The Delta group will be on DL 9448 from Rome to Amsterdam, not DL 1598.

The connecting flights to Detroit remain the same: UA 5734 and DL 249.

  1. I posted links to a flight tracker in the facebook group, too.

  2. Looks like the plane to DC landed about 25 minutes ago.

    Google will actually give you progress if you just type in the flight number (e.g., UA967). It appears in its own box at the top. THe first link below is a flight tracker, if you want to see where they are in the process.

    The Internet is fun. :)

    Welcome home, OHS family!

  3. The group flying through DC is delayed. They just went wheels-up, 45 minutes late or so. They are now expected at 7:45 p.m. at Metro. Depending on how long it takes the group from Europe to clear customs, we may see them pretty close together at OHS.
