I went out to Ohio this past weekend for a family get togther. I flew out of HPN
as it is closest to my home and the fare was cheap. Continental is the only airline that flies there direct from CLE
so that was the way to go.

I arrived at HPN
at just after 4 pm, parked in the garage and checked in using the kiosk just inside the terminal. As there are a fair amount of flights departing around this time, the security line was pretty long. I decided to not risk missing the flight, so I went right to the TSA
line. The line moved quickly and I took a seat near gate 2. You never know what gate you are leaving from until the aircraft arrives at the field. The inbound CO RJ
landed and we boarded. I took my seat in 10A. This route is usually flown on ERJ135s but today we were on an ERJ145 and nearly every seat was taken. We taxied out to 34 and had to wait a little for some departing and arriving aircraft. We rolled out and were on our way. As it was night, I really could not tell our exact route but I assume we basically flew over the Hudson Valley, North Pennsylvania, and NE Ohio. We did a 360 over the city of Cleveland and landed on 24R, taxied to D28, and deplaned. I took my bag off the cart and met my ride outisde.

I arrived at the airport after a nice weekend with family. I checked in at the kiosk and went through security quickly. I headed through concourse C, through the tunnel to concourse D where I took a seat near D28. A few flights were departing from here to SYR
, and CLT
. We boarded and I took my seat in 10A. We taxied to 24L where we were number 1 for takeoff. I saw absolutely nothing as it was overcast for almost the entire flight. The flight was quick and we landed on 16 just after 515pm. We arrived at HPN
after a snowstorm had hit earlier in the day. We parked near the end of 16 along with a Commutair B1900, a United Express CRJ, and an Air Canada prop plane. A gate became available after awhile na dwe pulled up at 610pm. We parked next to a USAirways Express plane that was being deiced. I picked up my bag in the baggage claim, went to the garage, paid the $68 for parking, and headed home.
As always, good flights on Continental. It was no big deal to sit on the tarmac on HPN
for me, but it caused the return flight to be delayed as well as many other flights from HPN
. Some people might have missed connections. That about does it, hope you all enjoyed it.
