What was supposed to be a fun holiday weekend in Europe is suddenly turning out to be unexpectedly inconvenient and problematic for FlyerTalk member jenniparks, as she has a specific question about Delta in ZRH – urgent.
Instead of enjoying bratwurst and beer in Switzerland, her passport, money and identification were all stolen while in Zurich. She has no way of identifying herself and is doubtful as to whether she will be able to return home to the United States. Worse yet, the Delta Air Lines ticket counters at the airport in Zurich are closed until Monday 7 September, and the United States consulate is closed for the American Labor Day holiday and will not re-open again until Tuesday 8 September.
Can you offer advice and help reassure jenniparks that she will indeed be able to return home?
Cue music. Dum dum dum-dum dum dum …
AArkansas, your mission should you choose to accept it, is to go interstate tonight, get your passport renewed, travel across the city to get your visa updated, return home and leave for a destination half way around the world in 3 days. Will you accept the mission?
No, this is not a crime – at least, I do not believe that it is a crime.
Having one’s passport washed apparently happens to more people than one would think.
