Travel / Airline tickets from LOT... changing flights. [29]

Hello, It is Marika Sadkowska again. This time I have a question about changing flights. My grandmother came to visit from Lodz Poland. She is 80 years old and has difficulties traveling due to her age. Well, while she was here, she had a medical emergency. We had to call ambulance due to a bowel obstruction. Her plane ticket date to leave back to Poland is in two weeks. It is not safe for her to travel at this point, and we are not sure how to change her plane ticket without it costing money we do not have. After the medical costs we cannot afford to spend money to change plane ticket. Now I just need to ask if anyone has any experience with a similar experience and what can be done to change the fight for an extra month or two because my grandmother is not in great shape. She was told she might need surgery. I asked Grandmother which airline she flew here to New Orleans from Lodz and she is telling me Delta. If anyone needs any extra information to help our situation please ask and I will give whatever specifics necessary. Thank you and please either answer on this forum or message me. Again, my name is Marika Sadkowska. My grandmother's name is Asia Stanislawa Bilska. There is also the fact that my younger brother has a terminal brain tumor oligodendroglioma, and my grandmother wants to see my brother before she leaves, since it is a terminal brain tumor and this will be the last time my grandmother and brother will have to opportunity to see each other. He lives in St. Louis and has not been healthy enough to travel yet to visit. We have the medical paperwork to prove anything that needs to be proven. Please contact me with any possible advice. thank you.

My grandmother is here visiting from Lodz, Poland and I am asking questions about my father. She mentioned that many years ago (I was already in the US) a man came to my grandmother's apartment and asked for my great grandmother. Also, when my grandmother went to obtain a signature from my father so that I could leave Poland, she did not find my father, only his brother, who told her that my father was planning to leave Poland and move to Germany, which is where his mother lived. Slawomir Jerzy Sadkowska and Zbigniew, his brother, were both planning to move to Germany and close the mechanic business.

Travel / Airline tickets from LOT... changing flights. [29]

Thank you soooo much for your reply. I almost got duped with lufthansa airline. I noticed a great deal...well compared to all the other deals online. So i called to ask about my grandmother needing senior citizen assistance and only then did i find out that the price was only one way,(even though i specified round trip in the search). If one wants to fly to New York the prices are low, but that ONE little extra flight to New Orleans and the price MORE than doubles! I find that ridiculous! Also, forget "senior citizen discounts". I actually found the price goes up when I check the senior citizen box. Ugh! I'm so out of practice finding great airfare deals. And these websites keep transferring me to the same site, over and over! Searching for cheap plane tickets will most certainly put a damper on anyone's day. I did check out the Polish Lot Airlines but they do not travel to New Orleans. If I lived in New York this would be a much easier task.

Travel / Airline tickets from LOT... changing flights. [29]

Hello, I was wondering if someone knew any tricks or cheap airline websites. My grandmother from Lodz wants to come visit my mother, brother, and me in the US. She is getting older and will not be able to travel soon. Also my brother has a brain tumor and his health is in question. I have been searching high and low, all over the internet. I found relatively cheap tickets to New York, but then the ticket to from NY to New Orleans is more than the ticket from Poland to NY. Any suggestions? Also, grandmother cannot be stuck in airports overnight or endure long layovers.

Yes i am definitely a Sadkowska. Its on my Polish birth certificate. My mother's maiden name is Bilska. Not to mention I lived in Poland until I was 8 years old and that is how I always spelled it. I have been losing my mind searching for Slawek online. I don't understand how someone can avoid existing on the internet. Unless they are going out of their way not to be found. Which doesn't seem like my father.

Yes, that man couldn't be my father. It's strange that he has no internet trail. I wonder if he is still alive.

I looked up slawomir sadkowski. It stated that his job was a trash man. Mom told me that was definitely not him. Mom really thinks he left Poland.

thank you so much for the info. Ive searched the name slawomir jerzy sadkowski and no results popped up for the full name. I will check out the website. Thank you for your help. I will also try to contact maja. I found a slawomir sadkowska on facebook a few years ago, but unfortunately that was not my father. I have a photo of him holding me when i was a baby. I'm not sure if I would recognize him after so many years. He is 6'1". Blue eyes, dark blonde hair.

He was running his parent's businesses, that was in the 80's. Mom doesn't know what businesses. She knows that Slawomir's mother remarried after their father passed, moved to Germany. Mom doubts he is still running those businesses.

I know he finished college as a mechanic. I also know his family owned a few businesses which were managed by his brother.

Merged: I am searching for my biological father Slawomir Jerzy Sadkowski

My mother and father were divorced when I was 4 years old. I have been searching for my father online for many years. His name is not online in the searches. My mom and I moved to Germany, she remarried to an American, and I have been in the US since I was 8 years old. It find it very strange that my father's name does not show up in google search. I hope he is alive and doing well. My father disowned me when my mother moved to Germany. He did not want to pay child support as my mother explained. I have no ill will against my father. I would like to find him. My mother says I look and act just like him, and I would love to speak with him, and meet him. Ok this is what I know about him. Full name: Slawomir Jerzy Sadkowski. Born in Brzeg Dolny. He attended technical mechanical school there. He was born January (21?), 1958. He is 191 cm tall. His brother's name is Zbigniew Sadkowski. Every search turns into a dead end. I would like to tell him that I am not angry with him, I would love to have a conversation with him, even meet him. I have been dreaming of meeting him for so many years. He is my idol. I love it when my mother tells me I act exactly like my father. My mom's maiden name is Tamara Bilska. She was born in Lodz, which is where she met Slawek. Please let me know if you have any information about my dad. I would really love to meet him.
