I've got a question for people who have some experience with Amtrak and DCA.
My original plan to rent a car and drive to Delaware and Maryland, as well as DC had to be put on ice since no car rental company has any airport location that will rent cars to people under 25.
So now I am looking at flying into DCA, either from BOS or from JFK (which would be better since I haven't been there since 1992 and I want to fly a 772 again) and then take the train to get to PHL (where I can finally fly my first NWA DC-9!!!), where my flight leaves at 6:15 AM.
I would arrive at either 6:20 or 7:20 (from JFK) and there are three trains departing from Union Station in DC, that would be possible to take. One at 8:10, one at 9 and one at 10. All times are PM. The transit website states that it's a ca. 30 minute ride from DCA to the train station.
So can anybody shed some light on the chances of making all the connections and if it is advisable to take the BOS flight, rather than the JFK one.
