RE: 4 Hours Enough Time To Transfer Btwn EWR And J

the train connections are your best bet - NJT and LIRR are both in Penn so that connection is easy, getting through EWR customs/immigration is the real question.

RE: UA 737 At SFO Int'l A Gates On Sundays?

LOL - I should turn in my spotter membership card - confusing a 320 for a 737 - although driving by at 70 mph around that curve (on 101, not McCullough Rd) and with the fence blocking all but the top of the tail, I'm going to cut myself some slack.

Thanks!
