Re: SRQ announces traffic up 42% for July, breaks record; up 40% YTD

Been holidaying on Anna Maria Island every year for the past 30 years and as a kid in
the 90s always went to SRQ spotting. Those were the days b737-200s, md80s, b727s!
Nowadays I fly in via ATL purposely for the MD80 ride.
Glad to hear SRQ doing well

Connecting at Boston Logan

Soon I’m flying TPA-BOS with JetBlue then onto LHR with BA.
I believe it’s C to E.
What is it like connecting through BOS?
How much time should I give myself doing this?

This will be my first time flying through BOS.
