Somewhere between US and Europe
We left about 15 to 2o minutes late in time at Atlanta-Jackson International airport and flew from Atlanta toward Frankfurt in Germany via Lufthansa LH 445. Half way through the flight I had to take help of a cheerful and helpful air hostess to retrieve an ear-plug that got stuck in my ear and started to break. She very skillfully used her name badge to pull the ear-plug out of my ear. Thanks to her thoughtfulness and skill.
Then as we approached the airport we had to land outside the regular terminal since we were late. By the time we landed it was 9:10 local time and by the time the ladder was placed and boarded the bus to the terminal it was 9:35. Out connecting flight was supposed to leave at 10:15. So we hope and run through the terminal and security check only to find out our flight has already left.
We then had to leave the boarding area to get our tickets re-booked. We were rerouted via Qantas and Singapore airline via Singapore to our final destination. We then boarded our Qantas flight about 12 hours of stay at Frankfurt.
