Correction! We will meet you in Munich on Sept. 22 (or will it be the 23rd already?) Just checked our flight--same as yours.

Gerald Fitzgerald Sep 08, 2014 at 10:55 PM

Hi, Susan!
We will meet you in Ankara on the 23rd, 2014. We are the Fitzgeralds, Jerry and JoVonne from Denver, CO. We fly to Newark to Munich to Ankara (arranged by Road Scholar). Friends have told us great things about this trip. Look forward to meeting you.

Susan Steele Aug 31, 2014 at 11:11 AM

I'm on the trip that leaves September 22 and I'm doing the extension in Istanbul after the program. Anyone else on that trip and/or leaving from Boston on the 22nd, LH 425 to Munich and then Munich to Ankara, LH1784? I'm really looking forward to the program and meeting everyone.

Adrienne St John Aug 19, 2014 at 01:03 PM

My husband and I will be on Turkish Airline flight from JFK to Istanbul on September 8, then to Ankara. Anyone else?

Lois Boston Aug 11, 2014 at 07:53 PM

My husband, Glenn, and I are eagerly anticipating another great Road Scholar adventure and look forward to meeting all our fellow participants. We live in southern New Hampshire and will be departing from Boston on Sept 15th at 8:25 pm on UA8903/LH0425 to Munich. I'd be curious to know if there is anyone else who lives in our area and/or is traveling on the same flight.
James Reck Aug 22, 2014 at 03:20 PM

Judy and I live in Simsbury CT, and we are on the same Boston-Munich flight. We will be leaving from our daughter's home in Hollis NH. Will probably see you on the flight.
James Reck Aug 22, 2014 at 03:24 PM

OOps, sorry. We are on the week earlier tr1p, leaving on Sept 8.

Karen Harris May 03, 2014 at 10:20 PM

I've never posted here, so hope I do it correctly. I leave Houston for Munich May 5, arriving in Munich May 6, and booked on UA 9044 departing Munich 11:10 a.m., arriving Ankara 3 p.m. This will be my first trip to Turkey. Have been enjoying The Great Courses series on Greece and Turkey. I, too, look forward to meeting everyone.
John Suter May 04, 2014 at 12:12 PM

Hi Karen. Looks like the Munich-Ankara leg is another United-Lufthansa joint flight -- we're on the same one, probably with many of our crew. See you in Munich.

John Suter Apr 30, 2014 at 02:19 PM

Hello everyone who's on this trip beginning this coming Monday, May 5. My wife Natasha and I are eagerly looking forward to meeting all of you (there are 18 of us altogether), and I thought it would be fun to find out who each other are before we start spotting the Road Scholar luggage tags in the airports. We're from Ithaca, New York. We'll be arriving at Dulles from Syracuse on United at 3:45 for the 5:15 Lufthansa flight to Munich arriving May 6, 7:50am. Anyone else on either of those flights?
Dan Whelton May 01, 2014 at 06:34 AM

Goodmorning John My wife and I are on a United Flight at 5:15 for 7:50 arrival at Munich, I wonder if its the same flight as yours. Lufthansa and United are partners and share codes. We live in Marlyand so Dulles is somewhat local for us. Look forward to meeting you. Cheers/Dan and Nancy Whelton
John Suter May 01, 2014 at 08:51 AM

Good morning, Dan and Nancy. Yes, it's the same flight (UA 0132, LH 9281). Where are you in Maryland? Our daughter lives and works in DC.
Dan Whelton May 01, 2014 at 03:42 PM

Chesapeake Beach, Calvert County which is called Southern Maryland

Scott Wiley Sep 29, 2013 at 10:22 AM

Hi Mary. Yes I will be traveling with the group. I am a clinical pharmacist from Denver. I will be flying from Denver to Chicago tomorrow morning and arriving in the afternoon to fly on then to Munich. Maybe we are on the same plane. I am never sure whether these messages are going through. Let me know if you get this message. Thanks Scott Wiley

Scott, thanks for your response. I am not taking this trip until Oct 14, however. I hope your trip is marvelous, because I certainly want mine to be, too. Mary Bacon
Scott Wiley Sep 29, 2013 at 12:10 PM

I see that now Mary. I hope you have a great trip!
