. . . continued. . . Airport on flight AZ422 at 10:30. We were served lunch on board the flight.
We flew over the Alp Mountains, rising high above the cloud levels from horizon to horizon (left to right), all covered with snow. A beautiful sight, with the sun shining on the snow covered peaks.
The flight arrival in Frankfurt at 12:45, on time. I got a room at the Airport Sheraton Hotel for overnight. I called USAIR, and was told there would be "no problem" getting a seat to Pittsburgh tomorrow morning at 11:45.
I rested in the hotel room and read a magazine until 5:00. I walked over to the airport terminal (on a covered walkway, without the need to go outside). I found another McDonald's restaurant in the terminal for dinner (chicken and a fish sandwich). WEnt back tot he hotel and watched CNN International on TV, read and in bed at 10:30. I set the alarm for 8:00 AM

. . . continued . . . Frankfurt, but I see planes landing OK. It took more than one hour to get checked in through passport and security. More checks in Germany than anywhere else on the trip. I had to show my passport at 5 different places. I had to remove my hat and have it checked by security (only in Frankfurt). I arrived at the departing gate one-hour before flight time. Last check before boarding!
On my way!
We took off on schedule at 11:45 for a 9 hour flight. We were served a hot meal (chicken, noodles and vegetables) at 9:00 AM
(Pittsburgh time) and a lunch of cold cuts and cheese at 1:30 pm ( Pittsburgh time).
We landed at the new Pittsburgh International Airport on schedule at 3:00 pm.
I called Margaret to pick me up and had to go through customs check to get into USA. This was the most thorough check of anywhere. I had to open all my bags and unwrap my gifts, while they searched all my dirty laundry. But I passed.
Margaret arrived to pick me up at 4:30 and drove to her home before going out to dinner. She took me to dinner at Tiffany Place (on Route 51).
It is great to be back in the USA, and home.
A fantastic trip!
