Jan. 29 - Feb. 5, 2015
The Plan: If this wasn't meant to be a 360 trip, what was the original plan? Well, I was in Chicago for a United class, so my mom and I planned to meet in Detroit for little trip to celebrate her birthday. We wanted to go to Seoul in a 747, since they are being phased out. I made reservations at a cute little hostel in the heart of Seoul and downloaded a lot of Korean apps and Seoul transit map apps and was, of course, totally prepared to head to Asia.
But, when we got to the gate in Detroit, we found out that the Seoul plane was being weight restricted and no nonrevs would be going. At this point in the story, I owe a HUGE thank you to all of the Delta nonrevs on Facebook who helped me find another last minute option. We ran (seriously) through the airport to the Amsterdam plane, and hopped right on in to our first class seats. Whew!
