A Day of Flying

Because of Air Canada’s new “lean and mean” schedule, it’s no longer possible to leave Boston late in the day to fly to Charlottetown — the last flight out is at 2:20 p.m.

As a result, I’m leaving Dublin this morning at 9:00 a.m. for a day of seemingly endless travelling, including a very special 2-hour layover in the Halifax airport.

Next time I fly I’m going to see if Prince Edward Air’s new Charlottetown to Halifax service can link up with Delta’s Halifax to Boston service; if it prices out about the same, the mere fact of being able to avoid Trudeau (nee Dorval) Airport in Montreal would be worth the additional complications.

Back on the Island tonight at 7:30 p.m. Can’t wait.
