In October 2013, I attended the AOPA annual convention in Fort Worth, Texas. For some crazy reason, I ended up at Dallas Love Field four hours before my actual flight departure. That gave me plenty of time to wander and take photos like the #avgeek that I am. I took this one in front of the Cool River Cafe.
In December 2014, I got to attend the Star Alliance general meeting in Delhi, India. As part of the trip, I was encouraged to fly Star Alliance carriers. I flew United Airlines from Washington Dulles International Airport to Zurich and Swiss from Zurich to Delhi. I had a six-hour layover in Zurich, so I hung out in the Swiss lounge. located on the second level of the airport. Across the hall was a patio area that had great views of the airport and mountains, which is where I snapped this shot. Enjoy!
Back in September 2008, I went to Boston to attend the global Airports Council International convention. I had some time to kill at Boston-Logan International Airport, so I took a lot of pictures. I liked this one because it featured five different airlines. Jump a mere six years later only one — JetBlue — is still in its original configuration. The rest merged, with only American Airlines retaining its brand.
Back in the summer of 2007, I was in Las Vegas for a journalism convention (good times). I flew in early so I could do an interview with the then-head of the airport and take one of those great, behind-the-scenes #avgeek tours. I was invited to go on the roof of one of the terminals to check out the view. I decided to ignore my fear of heights and I got this and many other shots. Enjoy!
Back in June, I got to spend the day at United Airlines’ Newark-Liberty International Airport’s Terminal C tasting to food at Little Purse, a noodle and dumpling restaurant that opened in August. You can read my story here. I also got to see the new seating area where United passengers will be able to eat, drink and be merry right at their boarding gate. Enjoy!
