I had to go to New Jersey yesterday for a meeting and had a 6:10 PM flight scheduled to continue on to Orlando for another meeting today. I was flying Continental and while their planes are newer, the seat pitch just isn’t what American’s is. That 2-3 inches makes a huge difference. Anyway – when I got to Newark my flight was showing on time but by the time i got to the gate, it was clear it wouldn’t be. There was still a flight at my scheduled gate so we were moved one gate down the terminal. Then we were delayed. By the time we started boarding it was about 6:40 and since the flight was full, it took a while to board. After departing the gate we sat on the runway for another hour, maybe more. The pilot made up some time in the air – and we finally landed about 10:30, about an hour late so he made up at least 30 minutes. Just a typical Newark experience!
