    UN General Assembly 2013

    Well it's that time of the year although there may not be much this weekend for the kick of on Tuesday, but again, given the situation in Syria we never know. Please post all know intelligence on incoming to JFK and outgoing to IAD, BWI and ADW.

    No, most stuff doesn't stay at JFK. A lot of it goes to SWF after dropping pax at JFK. Quieter and easier to secure there.

    Fasil .... According to a PANYNJ document I saw on the web (see below):

    "“What are Port Authority of NY & NJ aircraft parking limitations?”• Kennedy, Newark, LaGuardia and Teterboro Airports all have a two (2) hour standing limit for diplomatically cleared flights during UNGA.
    • Aircraft are required to unload the dignitary/delegation and reposition the aircraft to another location within this two (2) hour window.
    • This is strictly enforced by all four airport authorities."

    Yea, there is a 2 hour limit at JFK. However, my JFK ops buddy tells me that so very often, some of these guys land and say "oh, the planes broken, we cant leave." But when the VIP is ready to leave, the plane is magically fixed! lol

    Jason .... Not many aircraft stick around if at all after they come in. Drop the goods and leave! Maybe the Port Authority should tow illegally parked planes during UN Week and charge a hefty fee to get them back! That should teach a lesson to those foreign dignitaries.

    The PANYNJ should charge them the daily T5 garage fee ;), that will definitely teach them a lesson! I kid...
    Can't wait to see you all next weekend!

    Does anyone have an estimate of what day might have the most traffic? I'm planning on going on Friday, Saturday or Sunday.

    Uzbekistan UZB101 is now enroute to JFK for a 7am arrival. That's way earlier than the usual arrival time so I wonder if this is a VIP flight.

    It's a regular flight, but their arrival times are always all over the board. They just seem to leave whenever they want on the scheduled day.

    You never know how long it will take to load the goats and chickens, so the schedule is more of an approximation...
