This is a trip I’ve been looking forward too. I’m flying to New York because the dining car service on the Chicago east coast trains just does not get it done. Plus this gives me extra time to meet friends in nyc, Orlando and Washington, D.C. along the way. The attached photo shows what I’m leaving behind in Chicago as I head for warmer climates in New York and Florida. I checked in exactly 24 hours early and snagged the A25 boarding position. I’m rather pleased to get that and not spend extra for early bird Boarding. Even though it is Snowing the flight is currently scheduled to leave on time. So far I’ve managed not to get caught in the 737 Max issues and have a cancelled flight. I’ll keep you posted as the day progresses.
