My company decided Lufthansa wasn't good enough for them anymore (meaning they found a cheaper option) and now it seems that Air France is our preferred airline of choice for flying to Germany. I was nervous about this decision when I heard about it just because I know of Air France's reputation and the fact that it would take us through Paris and they aren't exactly known at that airport for being on the ball.

So of course, knowing all this, my bag went missing. It's in Paris, I'm in Leipzig. This presents a bit of a problem as it's not showing up until tomorrow and I have to work. It looks like we're going to have someone from the crew bringing the plane in leave one of their flight manuals on the plane for me to use and we'll return it after the trip when they take the plane back from us. This way I'm still making hours and the crew isn't short staffed. Of course, I will be doing this trip without my uniform. Instead I will be in the clothes I wore from JFK to Leipzig. My purser was nice enough to go to the mall with me so I could buy socks, underwear, pajamas and a shirt on the companies dime. Since all Air France did was shrug their shoulders and give me an amenity kit that contained a t-shirt and a toothbrush.

At least my bag should be here tomorrow. So I am celebrating with Aloe Vera yogurt.

In other news, I'm up to Daleks in Manhattan in my Doctor Who marathon. This means I had to watch the last two episodes of series 2. Two episodes I HAD NEVER SEEN.

My TV watching habits are strange in the extreme. It's almost like if I start liking a show TOO much I have to stop watching. Part of the case with Doctor Who is that I know RTD likes to rip out hearts and stomp on them so I just found it safer to never watch, or at least never watch the last few epiosdes. It puts me in the strange position of being someone who got into Doctor Who through New Who but has seen every episode of Classic Who but not all of the New Doctor Who. So I made a handy list of all the eps I've not yet seen.

Army of Ghosts
Doomsday

Last of the Time Lords
Time Crash
The Doctor's Daughter
The Unicorn and the Wasp
Silence in the Library
Forest of the Dead
Midnight
Turn Left
The Stolen Earth
Journey's End
The Next Doctor
Planet of the Dead
The End of Time, Part 2

Stunning isn't it? ;)

Talk about major airline fail.

I thought the Manhattan Dalek episode was awful - or, I guess, really funny in an awful way since the accents were laughable and they kept using English terms for things.

Air France is pretty good at major airline fails. Their reputation proceeds them.

I thought it was pretty terrible too but since I'm going in order I can't skip it. Plus, after 155 Classic Who episodes I think I can sit through just about anything now and bad American accents are practically a tradition.

Oh well isn't that just craptastic. D:

Can you at least buy expensive socks and underthings?

Yeah. I wasn't terribly thrilled. Air France only had one flight a day to Leipzig. If this had happened with Lufthansa I would have gotten the bag a few hours later as they go back and forth from Frankfurt multiple times a day.

Alas, nothing expensive. I'm lucky I managed to get what I did with the money I was allowed to use. Thank god for all the sales going on right now.

I can't wait for my bag to show up. I hate these socks.
