CCP Service?

Tue Jul 05, 2005 3:08 pm

Hey All,
I booked my 5 day vacation for cancun 2 weeks ago, and I am curious as to some insight on the carrier I'll be using. I will be flying nonstop on a Champion Air B722. It has been 10 years since I got to ride a 722! The last one was a DFW-MCO ride on AAL.

The flight is scheduled for 8/6 at 5:45 am. The flight is nonstop..and runs just a little bit over 2hrs. Are there any meals served aboard this flight?

It has been a long time since I flew internationally. They say to show up 3 hours ahead of time, but being that I would be arriving at the airport at 3 am...is this really nesscary?

As much as I love aviation and watching aircraft..I can't handle sitting in those stiff Terminal-D seats here at DFW for 3 hours. Would it be okay if I showed up around 90 minutes prior to take off, even though it is an ineternational flight?

I am really looking foward to riding on the gorgeous B722's..I'm glad to know that someone out there still flys these babies!

I'm kinda just looking for a feal as to what kinda service to expect from CCP, even though they are a charter.

They come and go from MSP quite often on a daily basis. A few friends have flown on them and every one said it was "cramped." They also said the flight crews were "better" than those found on scheduled carriers.
