French Quarter Festival & New Orleans , Lousiana

April 7-9 2017 French Quarter Festival

Our trip was messed up because there were storms in Atlanta, Delta's hub. On 4/5 we sat in Dayton Ohio airport for 14 hours only to have our flight cancelled. We returned to Cincinnati Ohio airport the next day and the delays continued. #Delta really ruined this vacation for us. We proceeded to have a second day in an airport , 1 aborted landing, driving X2 and an overnight flight. Pretty hard on our parents who are in their late 70s. Delta gave us $200 back or 20,000 skymiles but that was not enough compensation. I am very disappointed in their company at this time.
Here is a picture of my Dad at midnight thinking we were finally getting to New Orleans....But after we decided for 45 minutes the crew timed out and we had to return to the gate to change crews.

We finally arrived at New Orleans at 5:30 a.m. 2 days later and naturally had to grab some sleep. My parents slept for 6 hours, but because Jim's parents had already been there a day without us and were leaving Saturday, we only grabbed 2 hours of sleep and went to breakfast with them to celebrate their 25 the wedding anniversary!
 I tried the beans and mufellata. Jim had alligator sausage and eggs.
We took the trolley up to the Garden District and enjoyed our time with the Barnes.

We returned to the city and met up with my parents and the Blairs finally arrived as they had similar delays with Delta.😏
We headed to the festival! Time for vacation!
