Jan. 4 promises to be a very long day. Delta recommends travelers who are flying to Moscow to arrive at the airport three hours early to clear security. My flight leaves at 6 a.m. so I’ll be at Armstrong International by 3 a.m. Wow! What goes on at an airport at 3 a.m.? TSA screening and not much else I assume. I have picked up international students as late as midnight several times … the airport is dead at that time. Maybe 3 a.m. is a busy time.
From New Orleans I travel to Atlanta for a three and a half-hour wait. Then I fly to New York City for a relatively brief hour and a half layover. At 4:35 p.m., I board the plane to Moscow for an overnight, oversea flight. The flight reaches Moscow at 10:10 a.m. Jan. 5.
Basically, that’s 12 hours from my arrival at the New Orleans airport until my departure from New York. Flight time from New York to Moscow is 9 ½ to 10 hours – plenty of time to nap, read a book, listen to music and write.
