Jungle fever!

(no subject)

Hey everyone! I'm new here. I spend half my life in airports. My dad's a pilot for American Airlines and I fly on his passes all the time. I got to school at Arizona State but I'm from Indianapolis so I go back and forth all the time. I want to be an Air Traffic Controller after I graduate from college. Here's a list of the airports I've been through:

IND-Indianapolis International
PHX-Phoenix Sky Harbor International
DFW-Dallas Fort Worth
ORD-Chicago O'Hare
Reagan International-Washington D.C.
Islip-MacArthur-Long Island
Logan International-Boston
BWI-Baltimore-Washington International
Charlotte, North Carolina Airport
Richmond Virginia Airport
Orlando, Florida Airport
St. Louis Airport
Detroit Airport
Pittsburgh Airport
JFK International-New York
Nantucket Airport-Nantucket Island, Massachusetts
Minneapolis Airport
Tucson Airport-Tucson, Arizona
Charles Du Gaulle International-Paris, France
London-Gatwick Interational- London, England

I love traveling! Flying doesn't make me mad or frustrated like it does a lot of people. I love flying by myself and watching people go by at airports. It's great!

Charles de Gaulle airport

Hi guys. I have a question for those of you who have ever gone to Charles de Gaulle in Paris.

This Saturday I have a Montpellier-Paris-Boston flight. I have 45 minutes in Paris between my arrival and departure times to get from Terminal D to E in Aerogare 2. I won't have to recheck my bags and I'll already have my Paris-Boston boarding pass printed in Montpellier HOWEVER I am still nervous that 45 minutes is not enough.

Anyone have advice? Thoughts?

Fun at JFK last night.

That winter storm that pounded the northeast yesterday provided quite a bit of fun! Listening to air traffic control out of JFK last night, I got to hear all of the following:

  • A Turkish Airlines A340 slide off the end of runway 31L
  • Medical emergencies while waiting in line to take off from JetBlue, Air France and Aeroflot
  • A heated exchange between the tower an a Virgin Atlantic 747 who needed de-icing while waiting in the takeoff queue
  • A flood of JetBlue planes who landed and had to sit nowhere for over two hours because every gate in their terminal was taken
  • A British Airways 747 who took a wrong turn on a taxiway and ended up nose-to-nose with another British Airways 747

Who says nothing fun can happen at the airport?
