The day before I headed to Europe, I got a telephone call from KLM Royal Dutch Airlines. Apparently they were canceling my non-stop flight from Chicago to Amsterdam.

Flying from Chicago to Amsterdam

Photos From 35,000 Feet The flight from Chicago to Amsterdam Sunday, Tanya and I packed up and headed to Cracker Barrel for one last meal before boarding our flight to Amsterdam. We flew KLM because we like their service and we know where the good seats are. The flight was a little over seven hours long, and we got no sleep, but we arrived in great spirits. Next stop, Dublin.
