    Slightly reminds me of heading home from Hilo, Big Island with a lay-over and flight change in Honolulu, Oahu Island. Had to book a new flight from Honolulu for the next day.

    The old question: Will they play in Peoria? If you don’t get this pun, its because you are not old enough.

    The runways at the Paris airport aren’t wide enough for international flights.

    I think this stems back from the guess that was made that they were going to Peoria not Paris per the slip of the tongue.

    When the family was ‘keeping’ the secret of Paris, didn’t Jan tell Joan that Wally was taking her to Peoria?

    Paris-Le Bourget is unsuitable for most commercial flightsParis-Orly is open for national flights but unsuitable for wide bodies.Charles-de-Gaulle is the Int’l airport but is in Roissy, not Paris (over 22 km away). The Paris-Roissy name is just a marketing ploy.

    If Val was making this trip, they’d be landing in Sheboygan.

    I don’t think Peoria has an airport.

    I’m kind of glad they don’t go to Paris. She wouldn’t enjoy it anyway. Paris is good for positive people and great for spontaneous people.

    BTW, there’s a “New Paris” in Sheboygan County. It’s embedded in the city of Plymouth. I drove through it and went, “Whaaa?” It was pretty small beers. There’s also a Paris in Kenosha County, WI. For New Paris, see×88049c556f6652a1:0×93a97ae1dca86388,New+Paris,Plymouth,WI+53073&gl=us&ei=LZVXUcnZGoO29QSj54D4CQ&sqi=2&ved=0CG8QtgM
