Mark is having fun with his business trip.
He found out this AM that to American Express a "direct" flight to Mumbai is via Brussels, which until recently was shut down. So we now have a flight via Abu Dhabi that gets in at 3:00 AM Wednesday.
Since we have business in the UK (which is open now) we have to get back to Heathrow on Friday. Of course the return leg of our original flight from UK to Mumbai was voided as we didn't fly from UK; this was because there were no outgoing flights. The carrier doesn't care as they can sell it for more.
Since we HAVE to be back in UK we now leave Mumbai on Friday at 2:00 AM on the only 2 seats - business class via Brussels. The price is obscene.
