Here We Go Again -Gearing Up for Pesach


(Image Source)

I was looking for a flight to take me to my Pesach destination this year. . .
and a quick search on Kayak revealed my options . . .

The cheapest flight available was an Aeroflot flight with one stopover in Moscow . . .

Keeping the sanity of my parents in mind, I first checked the safety record of the airline:
They had all but phased out their Tupolevs and Ilyushins . . .
and to boot
"there have been no fatal accidents since 23 March 1994, when an Aeroflot Airbus crashed in Siberia after the pilot allowed his 15-year-old son to take the controls. Since then, Aeroflot has considerably improved its safety record."

Not bad . . . It seemed great . . .
Only then did I realize that the flight had a 27 hour layover in Moscow on the way there and a 32 hour one on the way back.
Great . . . Just not for me.

Next came a flight on SAS with a two hour stop over in Copenhagen . . .
But every time I clicked on the link to purchase it . . . it was sold out. When I then made a new search, the flight reappeared, only to be sold out when I clicked it again.
After a few of these clicks and misses I looked at the next option . . .

It was also an SAS, also in Copenhagen, but with a seven hour layover on the way there. . .
Perhaps I might be considered crazy, but that option seemed even better then the previous one -for now I could take a bus and walk around the old city! I almost jumped for joy.

Yet again upon clicking the link to purchase the flight it was sold out . . . click and miss . . . click and miss . . .
I then looked at my last affordable option . . . (There was always a Lufthansa flight for 2,200 USD)

My blood went cold, my hair stood on end.

It was a flight on nothing less then Royal Kurczaki Lotnicze -yes LOT . . . LOT Polish Airlines . . .
With a five hour stopover in the Land of the Warrior Saws on the way back.

There's no escaping it, is there?
