Aha... Planes Have Fuel Pump Problems Too

No surprise, we're off the plane and waiting to find out if another one will be wheeled up for us to board. We're somewhat joking but maybe it's not impossible.

We're sitting in the RCC only 50 paces away from the former gate along with some of the other refugees from the flight. We've been backed up by the 1K line on a flight to FRA with a long layover and a connection tomorrow afternoon, but we'll hang loose.

It's lucky we're not important people with meetings or conferences to attend. This is all part of the travel adventure and we'll do our best to hang loose.

Update: United just announced that we'll be flying about 9:00 p.m. and arriving about 11:45 a.m. in Rome. We're deducing that they found a spare 767 because the pilot was quite definite that the fuel pump problems would prevent the plane we were on from flying.

This is looking better than the backup plan of flying to Germany and waiting several hours before flying from there to Rome.

Time for another glass of complimentary but drinkable wine at the RCC.
