For All You Detail Oriented Readers . . .

Time to hit the road. We leave for the States in just four days. Our itineraries:

Tuesday July 12
Iloilo to Manila
Cebu Pacific flight #5J 454 departing 10:20a arriving 11:30a

Because our international flights leave so early in the morning, we will be spending the night in Manila.

Wednesday July 13, the long haul

Our family is not flying together. Chris is flying almost free using her frequent flyer miles. She and Gabriella will have this flight plan:

Manila to Hong Kong
Cebu Pacific flight #5J 110 departing 7:55a arriving 9:55a

Hong Kong to Toronto
Air Canada flight #16 departing 3:10p arriving 6:05p, this flight will last 14 hours and 55 minutes! This flight is in the top 20 of the longest flights in current operation.

Fortunately for Chris and Gabriella, Air Canada is an amazing carrier. They fly brand new Boeing 777s. Their in-flight entertainment is first rate, even in coach. Widescreen TVs at your seat with all movies and TV shows on demand.

Toronto to Baltimore-Washington International
Air Canada flight #7936 departing 8:50p arriving 10:27p

Dave, Eric, Faith, and Danny:
Manila to Nagoya, Japan
Delta flight #630 departing 6:35a arriving 11:30a

Unfortunately Delta used to be Northwest (Northworst). They fly old Boeing 747s dating from the early 80s. Also the in-flight entertainment is either what you bring to read, or what you might get to watch over someone's head on the drop down screens found in the cabin.

Nagoya to Detroit
Delta flight #630 departing 1:15p arriving 12:20p, this flight will last 12 hours and 5 minutes.

Detroit to Baltimore-Washington International
Delta flight #1637 departing 4:02p arriving 5:45p.

Because of the International Date line, we leave the Philippines and arrive in Baltimore and the same calendar day.

Please pray for traveling mercies, and also grace and strength for Chris and Gabriella as they are traveling on their own. We look forward to seeing our Stateside friends and family soon.
