At the airport - JFK

We had chosen a Tuesday to travel down to JFK figuring it would be less crowded that day. Well, the traffic was awful - as always. Once we got t o the airport, it was smooth sailing. The Aer Lingus gate is part of the Jet Blue terminal which has been completely renovated. It is now spacious, clean and as pleasant as any airport terminal can be. Even the Check in went smoothly, through in less than10 minutes (after all, it was a Tuesday). 

Naturally, the Aer Lingus plane is green! We board in 20 min. I wanted to get this off to test out the iPad as a blogging tool, it seems to work fine. Jet Vlue has free WiFi through the terminal, averaging 4 to 5 Mbps, very fast. It remains to be seen if I can blog from Ireland. We land at 8:30 am Ireland time.
