Last week, I booked a trip from Boston to Orlando on Delta with a stopover in CVG (they wouldn't give me the layover in ATL, and I didn't want to switch from the Delta terminal at LGA to the Marine Terminal, so I settled for CVG). This will be my first trip through CVG, and I have a few more questions about MCO (despite being through there several times). The Boston-Cincinnati flight is all right (BOS is my home airport, so I know all there is there). But for Cincinnati?
Where are the best places INSIDE Terminal C (I only have two hours, so no leaving the grounds for the CVG Spotters location)? I have heard negative things about Concourse C (and from the photos at Comair's website, it doesn't look too good either). How about Terminals A and B though. I am not a Crown Room member, so I can't use the Crown Rooms for spotting.
How about food at Cincinnati? Since I will have a layover at a time of day (1945-2150) that warrants dinner, are there any good restaurants that have good views of operations that are on the airside?
How bad is it connecting from Delta to Comair? Because as luck would have it, I do have to take the Comair CRJ from CVG to MCO, and if Concourse C is as spotter-unfriendly as it sounds, I will be avoiding that concourse until the latest minute.
Now for MCO...
As mentioned above, I will be arriving in MCO on Comair. In the past, I have only flown into MCO on Continental (mainline, using whatever airside they're on), and Delta/Delta Express (no Comair). I do know that Comair does have their gates located under the tram, and I have never been down these gates (60 A-K???). What are these gates like? Since it will be midnight when I arrive, photography is out of the question, but will I be able to record registrations of the other Comair planes overnighting? (gates 70-99 should be easy to do).
Also, I might take a half-day off of my vacation to do some spotting at MCO. I know of McCoy Road, but how is spotting from the top of the garage on the main terminal?
Thanks for your help.
