Early airport arrival
| By Ana C on Friday, June 7, 2002 - 1:34 pm: |
How early should we get to the airport (Newark) to catch the 7am Air Jamaica flight? We're leaving this Wednesday - YAY!! - and my husband keeps saying we'll be ok if we arrive to PARK at 5am but I think we should try and get there by 4am. Who's right?
Here is a blurb from AJ:
Check-In: Due to international processing and increased security requirements, we suggest that you arrive at the airport at least 2 ½ - 3 hours prior to your departure time to allow sufficient time to complete all necessary processing and documentation. Your reservations may be cancelled if you are not at the check-in counter at least 60 minutes prior to departure. Flights close 45 minutes before departure. You should be at the boarding gate at least 30 minutes before your flight is scheduled to depart.

Wednesday should be the 12th so I will see you at the terminal. We BT'ers must stick together.

COOL!! Looking forward to meeting you!
If you want to find us - I've got brown hair to my shoulders, my husband has a close shaved beard, we'll both have backpacks.
Now all I have to do is show my husband the AJ blurb Linda posted.... (thanks, Linda)
See you Wednesday!

I have gray hair, glasses. The hair is cut fairly short (yesterday) and is tending to stand up all over. It may be lying down at that hour (trying to sleep). See ya!! (Knock on wood, for good luck and warding off Murphy's law.)

Where were you? I embarrased my husband by asking several silver haired men if they were you. Maybe I'll catch you next time...
Regarding the topic I started here - in case anyone is interested, to his satisfaction my HUSBAND was the one that was right... we parked the car by 4:45am, and were all checked in by 5:15am, so we had a nice two hour wait for our plane. At least we had no incidents, Air Jamaica flew on time, and all our luggage arrived no problems.
Glen, if you read this, call the Little's at the Plaza!
Now to bed to get ready for my checkout dive tomorrow with Toucan- yippee!!!
See, that's what you get for listening to my wife :-) (now I get to run from her before she hits me!)
I got an e-mail from Glen saying that he had to delay his flight a week.
Will we see you at Gibi's tomorrow (Thursday) night?

Sorry I missed you guys at EWR. I will call if you will still be on the island a week from now. I apologize for not emailing you when the change was made--it happened Tuesday night. Have some good dives.

Bummer, we're leaving next Wednesday... maybe I'll see ya next time we come to Bonaire (hopefully soon!)
Jake, I just got your note about Gibi's, I'll try and talk my husband into going there now but no promises...
