Re: Weirdest Connections You've Ever Made

I flew BOS-ATL-EWR about 10 years ago just to fly on one of DLs last widebody BOS-ATL flights on the 767-300 and connect to ATL-EWR on a 757.

Strictly an aviation adventure, flew all the way south and back up north for a trip that would have otherwise been a 4 hour drive or a 45 min nonstop.
