Thank you. My wife called her sis in Delhi last night and the word was the same. Hopefully we will be lucky this time. I'll keep checking. Larry

Thanks for the reports, Debub. Hopefully the situation will improve by mid-February(!)
Larry, good luck - I hope you worked some extra time into your itinerary for a possible late arrival.

It depends on several factors really. If we are late leaving to Del. from Frankfurt due to fog I think we can manage something. However if we are in route for Del. but divert to Mumbai like last time then its a big problem, at least potentially. The airline will arrange for a hotel but will immigration process us out? Last time they did not and we sat for 9.5 hrs. in the airport. Good grief! I'll pray on it.
