I was wondering if there is a group of people from our website who live in the New York City area who go spotting or do any other communal activities (even going for dinner!) together ? It would be, in my opinion, fun to get together in person, especially since we obviously have interests in common.
I was also wondering if it is possible to guided tours at any of the NYC airports either by the airport or by individual airlines? When I was residing in Boston (granted this was 15 years ago!), a friend and I got lovely tours from both Swissair and Lufthansa. The guy who managed the LH operations in Boston at the time was supremely nice- he personally walked us through the entire aircraft (which, if I recall was an A340-200), including the cargo hold, and showed us in detail all the airport operations and servicing. It was phenomenal. I wonder in today's far more security-laden milieu whether something akin would be even possible... I would love for example to go visit and learn about maintenance facilities at an airline that has a base here (CO for sure, may be AA at JFK??)..
I'm curious as to others' thoughts, ideas, and levels of interest ..
Hope you are all doing well.
