Today was to be the start of our Paris to the Swiss Alps Land and River Cruise Tour. Not yet!
We drove down to the Avalon station of the RTA Rapid, parked, took our suitcases and waited for the Blue Line train. (Brynne would walk down to the station to drive our car home that evening.)

We waited several hours for our scheduled 17:25 flight. A plane arrived and disgorged ts passengers, and the waiting passengers readied to board.

That meant we would definitely miss our connection to Paris.
Everyone scrambled to make alternate arrangements.
Next they announced that they were bringing in another plane, but now it was a 5-hour delay!
After many calls, we were re-booked for flights the next day, meaning we would miss a whole day in Paris... And we had to have our luggage re-routed!
Brynne picked us up from the airport and we will spend tonight in our own bed!
Next: Arrival in Paris.
