How should they call each other

My mother in laws asked me how she should call my parents. I said the same generation, call by their name.

Yesterday on the phone, my mother said they should call each other "aunty and uncle". That's how she call the other in laws. She told me that she would never manage to pronounce the French name.

Already, my parents' name are so difficult to call by the French, I don't know whether they accept to call my parents "aunty uncle", or to be called "aunty uncle".

In this issue my mother in laws has put more efforts, at least she has written down every name in my family (18 peoples) and intend to call them by their name. My mother, she doesn't even want to try.

  2. Thanks Natasha, I got your message.
    As long as we check in, we should be no problem to pass through the security right?

    not really, because d Q really long, and there some people they almost late for d flight and they ask for priority to through d security but they r brush away. But i feel if you advance 2 hrs, shud be ok since emirates counter not crowded and most u justtake 15 mins to check in and you still hav ample time for security pass.
