With less than 48 hours to go we have finally been informed that we still have a flight to the Indian sub-continent. Not as first thought direct to New Delhi, but now via Mumbai.
At Mumbai we are to board a connecting flight to New Delhi resulting in our arrival being approximately 4-5 hours later than first anticipated.
To be honest we are all just relieved to be going, as the ongoing BA dispute with the Unite union had cast a serious shadow over all our travel arrangements. No doubt all the pre-trip stresses and anxieties will be forgotten as soon as we step out onto the bustling streets of Delhi.
So for now its on with the packing and last minute checks of belongings and equipment, then with God-speed my next blog entry will be from another continent, the sub-continent of India!
