    Crescent 20 lost 4 hrs this weekend (2nd Dec 2014 weekend)

    Looking back the last few days have been really nasty between Anniston and Atlanta north bound. With Saturday loosing over 4 hrs. Any word on a reason? We are taking this next month and if it is track work or something that will last I guess we can at least plan to be late.

    Checked bag pickup in nyp

    How long does it take to get checked bags in nyp. We are traveling Nol-nyp in a bedroom but may check a bag as to not over crowd the room. Also is it difficult to claim in nyp. Been there before but never had bags.

    Trip booked for February 2015

    So we booked our trip from NOL-NYP. We depart February 14. I have my scanner but can not find the website that lists the frequencies. Also we are in sleeper bedroom. What meals will be served. We can not wait, this will be so much fun. Wish we could do round trip but have to fly back due to time...
