Our flight into Frankfurt was late by about 10 min because of turbulence and we only had a one hour and 12 min layover there, we had requested mobility assistance but they were not waiting on us as we arrived so I had to track someone down and wait on them to get us. We got to our gate just as they were about to close the doors. Kyiv didn't print our boarding passes so we had to do that at the gate in Germany and they put us in seats nowhere near each other. In fact one of us in comfort economy class and one in economy. No one wanted to move so after a few min the flight attendant finally found us 2 seats together in the very back of the plane so we trekked back there and started getting seated when he came back and said he had 2 seats for us in comfort class by the handicap bathroom so we had to trek back up there. No big deal when you can walk without issues but for Katya it's very hard walking in spaces like that.
She was quite disappointed to realize that the movies on the flights were not in Ukrainian/Russian! She's refused so far to learn English or even try. She's actually told us she doesn't want to learn we of course know this will change so for now aren't pushing that to hard.
We finally got into Houston about midnight and home about 2am, in bed around 3am on Thursday. I'm happy to be home and back with my family. I missed my kids a lot and my hubby even more.
