Quite nice. The only thing I don't really understand is the round trip from Orlando to Atlanta and back again with the returning flight taking extraordinarily long. Is this lowest economy class and you've got to push the plane all the way back down south? If I were you, I'd just skip that and stay in Orlando ;-)

Thanks, fixed that.

See you in Orlando my friend.

The only risk is that switching through Atlanta's airport can be even *worse* than through Frankfurt (I swear I've had to walk 2 miles at Frankfurt). Bags will be checked through but sometimes you might have a 25-40 minute adventure between gates at Atlanta.

140 minutes should be enough for immigration, customs and transfer. This may even work with a one hour delay. Atlanta actually has always worked very well for me after the Olympics. 63 minutes the other way is a bit steep. But there are more flights going both ATL-FRA and ATL-MCO in case something goes wrong.

For the curious, no, I am not going to spend another week in Orlando. Shall not be there before the 24th. Last year we enjoyed Sanibel. This particular small hotel seems to be very much sold out this year though. Suggestions anyone?

I prefer
23JAN04 FRA - MIA
Orlando, Sanibel Island and Ft. Lauderdale by car
09FEB04 MIA - FRA

See you in Orlando

140 min are defintely enough to immigration, customes + transfer but unfortunately not enough for an additional round trip to the gold club... good thing it´s closed during daytime. :-)

Do remember that if you have a visa (as opposed to travelling under the visa waiver programme) that you will additionally have to allow time for them to photograph and fingerprint you, the new US-VISIT scheme starts January 1.

Simon Phipps, 2003-12-19

Oh, dear. Something is going wrong. Very, very wrong. If it continues this way I may stop going there indefinitely.

I used to have a visa some 20 years ago. In the last 10 years I have been travelling under the visa waiver program. My passport is full of those INS stamps. Never had any difficulties at all.

Let's hope they have enough personell to get the necessary documents processed.

Volker Weber, 2003-12-19

I'm travelling on Jan 6 (heading out early before LinuxWolrd NY) so I'll let you know what the extra delay is like. I too use the Visa Waiver program & US-VISIT doesn't apply to that.

Looks like we see all the geeks in Orlando again check http://www.cultshirt.com for votes for this years cult shirt ;-)
