The last post was misleading. Turns out the group that was on the original plane to Tel Aviv was also grounded and deplaned at 3:30 am. After a long night, many calls, pleading and bonding, our whole group will briefly unite in Philadelphia today. We will then split again, half going to Frankfurt and Tel Aviv. The other half will travel directly to Tel Aviv. We arrive within an hour of each other and will drive directly to Eilat.
We are grateful for those who helped us work it out.
