    UN Meeting 2010

    Hi guys,

    I'm new here on NYCAviation. My name is Jens Breuer and I'm from Mönchengladbach/Germany (that's about 60km from Cologne).
    I'm planning a spotting trip to the United States in 2010 and New York is definitly one airport I will visit. The plan is to visit JFK during the UN Meeting in autumn 2010. I searched on the internet but I couldn't find the exact date of the event. Is it already published and when yes - which days are the most interesting ones from a spotters point of view?
    Thank you very much and I'm sure there will be a lot of questions during the next months :D
    Cheers,

    Jens

    Hi Jens, welcome to the site!

    I don't know if the dates have been set already, but I'm looking forward to meeting you next year. Some of the other folks here will surely have better information than I.
    Email me anytime at [email protected].

    Nobody has definite information about the exact date?
    That's a pity - it's time to book to get a cheap flight on the LH A380 to JFK :borat: ... the A380 to JFK is not official yet - but soon I think it will be published ;)

    At this point, I don't know that the UN even has a schedule for next year's GA session - that's still 11 months away. If I had to guess, I would say it will probably open the week of Sept. 20, so the weekend before would be prime spotting, but I don't find anything on their web site calendar yet.

    ...that was also my problem but I can't imagine that the date is not fixed. Tomorrow (here in Germany it's almost midnight) I'll search once again ;) Thanks for your help - as soon as you get the exact date, please let me know!

    I just got hot information from the UN General Assembly web site team. :borat:
    They answered my email as follows:

    The dates of the opening and General debate of the General Assembly in 2010 will be as follows:

    14 September through 1st October 2010.

    Regards,

    UN General Assembly web site team

    It looks like there will be 2 Germans with you next year ... looking forward to a great spotting action!

    Cheers, Jens

    Hi Jens,

    Make sure you are here for the 2nd weekend of those dates, like Moose guessed, otherwise you will be disappointed!
