What time do you get to JFK ultimately?
No fun at all You need at least 3 legs to get home.
Anyone else flying out of DEN around 6 am? I'm on a 6:25 am departure on AA, and debating whether a Sat night hotel stay is even worth it. Regardless of hotel's location, I can't see myself spending more than 4 hours in the room.
I have a room booked at the Hyatt Place near DEN. Or just stay up late at the charity dinner/bar and go the the airport wicked early?
I am on the 6am PVD to LGA. Once I get to LGA I will probably explore the airport a bit (first time there), hang out at the US Airways Club before heading to the Andez for the program there...though it sounds like things might be cut short at LX lounge at JFK for those on Andez tour.
I'm leaning towards the latter.
+1 Just in case
Might be an option if somebody will hold my luggage. I think hotel should be able to do it.
What time do lounges open at DEN?
RCC's in DEN open at 5:30am
UA/CO 5:30am, AA 5:15am Not a big help for 6-ish flights. A better question is, how early does TSA start letting people in?
Booked my room as well
I posted this on the other smd 3 thread, but didnt see any replies. Would you guys trust a cheaptickets.com booking? I saw a position flight for me from grr-cle-bos-ewr for $198. On UA.com, its 650.00. Looking at UA mileage chart, looks like everything in Y earns at least 100% eqm. am I missing anything?
How about my DEN-ORD-CDG-LYS(via tgv)-CCF(via tgv)-BCN(via car)-FRA-BOS-MHT(via car)-BOS-SFO?
taking the scenic route aren't you....
cant pull the trigger between these 2 for getting home:
DEN-IAD-ORD-GRR (get to fly the 777 DEN-IAD and 767 IAD-ORD)
DEN-IAD-ATL-ORD-GRR (777 again, but then regional cigar tubes the rest of the way), more miles, tiny planes.
Considering "A" for legs so leaning towards the 777 and 767 itinerary to recover from what promises to be a busy week.
Either option will accomplish getting UA MP premier just on the DO flights and positioning flights.
A good problem to have, and it's easy to solve if you've got a quarter. In fact, any coin will do, as long as it has heads and tails.
damn coin keeps landing on its edge. un-canny!
How bad do you need those 367 EQM's???
It was more of a price issue. the longer route is cheaper, the shorter route is a bit more, but I get to fly on the widebodies. I'm thinking thats the route to go. I can fly little regionals any time. Not often I can do transcon's on the widebodies.
If the price difference isn't too much greater and you don't need the extra EQM's, then heavies all the way!!!
DEN TSA have minimal staffing at 4:30 a.m. More personnel start a 5 a.m. but really don't go to work until 10 to 15 minutes later. There are enough Denver 6 a.m. flights that the TSA lines can back up until everyone is in place. The SW and UA ticket counters are closer to the South side TSA checkpoints. If the South side lines are backed up, go to the North lines. The lines there always seem shorter.
that just seems sooooooooooo early for a flight just after a DO.
So early for any flight
I know I sometimes must take a 545am or 6am departure, but it's almost as bad as a full redeye. I must be getting soft in my old age...
Not at all. 0545 departure means get to the airport 0430 at the latest. Leave home 0400 or so, earlier if taking the shuttle. Get up 0330 at the latest. Try to get to sleep sometime before 2200 becomes the challange, ok if nothing is happening the next day, but if something is / I'm travelling then I drop off about 30 seonds before the alarm rings.
Not to mention for a redeye you tend to prepare to sleep with things like eye mask, sleep aid, blanket, pillow, etc., and fellow passengers and flight attendants are more respectful of the sleep environment. Early morning flight shades are up, lots more talking and moving around, etc., and you're going against your normal routine. While I can often sleep from gate to gate on an early morning flight, it's not as certain.
